I like the suggestion. And it's even better if we have a volunteer. :) If there are no objections and counter arguments, then the separation should get done.

To provide what seems to be the majority answer at this point: We'd prefer to have specific tags, since the questions can be searched generically in other ways.

Done.

Well spotted, thanks! I've merged all but the encryption tags. "disk encryption" definitely is an encryption – but encryption is not necessarily disk encryption. There's also FBE (file based encryption), text encryption (e.g. using GPG), encryption in messengers (e.g. OMEMO in XMPP), etc.pp., so IMHO we should better keep the two separate.

recording should no longer be used; I've retagged the handful of questions that were using it with more specific variants to disambiguate it. It is not a synonym of anything at the moment since the more specific tags will appear in the tag autocomplete anyway.

Renamed the tag to data-transfer to handle anything other than file transfers. Still a broad-ish tag, but should hopefully not get confused with file-transfer (at least not as much) or other things.

We already had external-display so I merged monitor into it and created an external-monitor synonym. I think monitoring needs some work though, it's too vague — there are lots of unrelated things that you can monitor. If everything is referring to process monitoring, perhaps we should rename the tag to process-monitor?
