I am looking for a way to encrypt a single directory on my computer that is not automatically mounted/decrypted on logon. I tried to create a private-directory and also created and encrypted a random directory on a separate hard drive with eCryptfs for testing purposes. However, I fail to mount the test-directory in the terminal and the private-directory is automatically mounted on logon.
What I'm actually looking for would be a way to encrypt one directory and have it mount and unmount interactively from the file manager (e.g. right click menu: mount/enter passphrase, unmount) or something similar. With my unmounted directories, I just see an empty folder when trying to access it, instead of being prompted with entering a passphrase or something similar.
Is that even possible and how could I do this?
