Following setup: I have a untrusted device on a VPS that I synchronize to. Now I want to add a single non-encrypted share, so that I can add files through automation to the filesystem on the server directly, that my other devices will receive it when they’re online again
Currently Syncthing forces me to set an encryption password if a device is marked as untrusted
Is this doable or would I have to run a second Syncthing instance just for this?
This is indeed the one and only purpose of that “untrusted” checkbox: to make sure you don’t inadvertently send unencrypted data to it. You can just uncheck that if you want to have an unencrypted folder there, which is perfectly fine.
