Public Links to encrypted backup in cloud
My understanding is that if I create a password-protected backup and store it to the Acronis Cloud, then the backup is encrypted AES-256 on the local machine and passed securely to the Acronis server, and that no information is also passed to the server that would allow decryption of the backup after it leaves the local machine.
However, the Cloud browser has the option of creating a Public Link. It appears from my testing that creating this public link and passing it to a third party will allow the third party to browse a decrypted version of the backup on the server. Can someone explain how this is possible if the backup on the server is really encrypted?
In fact, now that I think about it, I don't even understand how the Cloud browser can work if the backup is really encrypted on the server since it shows an unencrypted view of the file structure of the backup in a browser window.
