Decryption without Nextcloud

Let’s say for example you have Nextcloud configured to make server-side encryption to external folders (as intended: for example dropbox). You made backups of the encryption key (single master encryption key).

Then for some reason, your Nextcloud server is compromised and unfortunately, you did not make a backup of the server: e.g. a major problem with the server hosting platform, a robber stole your Raspberry Pi or your cat decided it does not belong on the table.

Would you be able to retrieve the data with the keys but without Nextcloud?

various post are found here on the forum that answer your question. Yes

There are recovery scripts I wrote which are now part of an official Nextcloud project here:
