Last night I setup an encrypted folder via ecryptfs in my dropbox folder. I called the folder ecryptfs. The main folder name does get encrypted, however nothing else. I copied one MP3 in that folder and I can play that file on my windows machine without any issues.

This is what it looks like on my linux machine without mounting the encrypted folder.
Code:

Please do not take this to be a rude question on my part, but why are you posting this? You did not pose a question or a request for additional commentary. Is there something you want answered? Is something not working the way you think it ought to work?

the issue is that only the folder names got encrypted, but nothing else. The files are readable without the key.
