I have the exactly the same issue as Mathieu: Everytime I try to use the “shred and delete” function from the contextual menu, AxCrypt freezes and I have to kill the Process. Sometimes I am able to “shred and delete” one file at a time, but never two files, or more, at a time. And sometimes AxCrypt will freeze even when trying to “shred and delete” a single file.
AxCrypt v 2.1.1398.0, and the previous 2.x versions had the same behavior.
My OS: Window 7 SP1 with all updates 64-bit.
