Backed up file/folder names are encrypted, even when encryption is not used

If I set Encryption to 'Do not use encryption' in the Backup schedule, all files names are still being encrypted. Is that correct?

The files and folders names backed up using CloudBacko Pro/Lite are encoded by default. But if you set Encryption to 'Do not use encryption' . the actual contents of the files will not be encrypted.

It is required to encoded all file/folder names because different destinations (e.g Google Drive, SFTP, FTP, Amazon S3) have different requirements for file/folder names. CloudBacko needs to make sure that the names to be used are supported by all destinations. This is why all names contain only alphanumeric characters.
