This is just a low-priority suggestion, but I perhaps it will be interesting for someone.

With sensitive data it is often important to encrypt backups. The easiest way is to ask the user for a password, store it to a file and then filter (compressed) data through a gpg filter. Personally, I'm using something like this:
gpg --personal-cipher-preferences AES256,AES192,TWOFISH,AES,BLOWFISH --pgp7 --symmetric --compress-algo none --passphrase-file file-with-the-password --batch --no-use-agent

    Thanks for the suggestion. We will try to make this in the future release.

    Steven.

  • I don't even think that this is a low priority. That is REALLY important feature and it's easy to implement.
