No, we can’t automatically encrypt files in a folder, because it causes problems for many softwares. Also, it’s still a ‘race’ between then backup / synchronization and AxCrypt that we can never *guarantee* to win.
However – you can (probably) configure your backup / synchronization software to only backup files ending with .axx . This will ensure that no unencrypted data ever reaches the cloud. See https://support.code42.com/Administrator/4/Configuring/Include_or_exclude_files_for_backup for details.
