Hi Tony,

For your specific scenario – personal archive use, I really think you’re misunderstanding how AxCrypt 2 works and the value of the portable / standalone version.

This is a fully featured entirely self-contained version of AxCrypt 2 that you can store along with your AxCrypt-encrypted files. The self-decrypting function is really limited in functionality and requires you to run each encrypted file separately to decrypt, and has a fundamental built-in limit of 2GB size (due to Windows restrictions in .exe size, not an AxCrypt limitation).

I really think you’ll be much better off using the standalone AxCrypt 2 version, than the AxCrypt 1 self-decrypting feature.
