encrypting drive / files
Actually i do want to encrypt a virtual drive, what connects my Mac to my online NAS. As I want to use my files on Mac, at home, and on windows, at work, I can't use the encrypted virtual file of OSX :-(. I'm using GPG for my emails for a wile and found that i can use it to encrypt files and even folders. thats great. thought i can't encrypt my virtual drive itself i just thought about creating one folder containing all data instead and decrypt this one. So far so good. But for some reason gpg saves a encrypted copy. and After decrypting another copy of the original file/ folder. Why? is it possible to have just one folder what i can encrypt and decrypt all over again without having multiple copies of the file/folder?
is there a way to encrypt and decrypt files/folders on iPhone, though I would love to use it for dropbox too?

You can use

OpenPGP isn't the best solution and not really recommended. Instead you should look into encrypted disk images. This is possible on OS X using Disk Utility. But I am not sure about compatibility for cross platform, let alone iOS.
BoxCryptor may do what you are looking for, but I have no personal experience using that service.
When you decrypt the decrypted file is created. If you re-encrypt and again decrypt, another folder is created. That behavior is expected.
All the best,
