I have used it for a short time, and when it works it is OK. In my
case however, I had too many errors and unrecoverable backups so I
stopped using it.

To have an encrypted backup, I now use an encrypted volume on the
remote device and use rsync over ssh to do the backups to that volume.

It is much more simple and it is easy to recover backups.
