Thanks for that. I expect I’ll wait for the next release.
My files mostly reside in Veracrypt containers, in encrypted zipx files. These in turn contain individual encrypted files. All are encrypted with keyfiles of considerable length. I also have the keyfiles encrypted with a shorter and easily-remembered password, and they also have an extension other than.txt.
I think my best plan is going to be to mount containers then decrypt/extract/decrypt under the 1.7 version of Axcrypt, using the keyfiles. I then need to install 2.?, and re-encrypt the files and zipx. This will take some time, but is the easier way of handling the numbers involved.
Do I need to uninstall 1.7, or can I just install 2 over the top of it? I guess that I’d have to restart at least Windows Explorer to get the shells to work properly, or even reboot.
