Selective encryption from application side

I do realize that you don't want everything to be encrypted with a private key since some of your services (like the cloud between computers and sharing) would become much more complicated... I realize that and I believe that you are correct about it...
On the other hand I believe that you shouldn't forget about the whole matter of encryption with a private key... It just has to be used alternatively...
My suggestion is to implement it as an option when a new folder is added and only if this folder is meant to be archived... So, when a user is adding a folder that wants to be encrypted he will not be able to have all the flexibility that exists right now...
It will be like a checkmark on every new folder upload and the main reason for this will be to have a safe storage solution encrypted in case we need it in the future...

Just a simple idea that would easily add to the functionality of your service, it would make the customers feel safer and as a result would not send them to other solutions like Backblaze and other less featureless services...

Waiting for your feedback!
