    Hi all, is there an option to include all subfolders and files when securing a folder.  For instance, if I add c:\not porn to secured folders, my subfolder c:\not porn\peter dinklage scat and all vids are not encrypted.

    Hello vjon,

    This is a frequently asked for feature, that we have deliberately not implemented yet. It’s not hard technically, but it has historically caused some major problems for users not realizing the full consequences (i.e. Encrypt c:\ recursive – yay, let’s encrypt everything, that must be secure!).

    We’ve had product planning meetings and discussions about how to ensure simple operation for most users, without exposing lots of options, while still enabling such functionality for users who are qualified to use them properly. We’re getting to a point where we have a concept we think will work, so it’s now on the list.

    I’m looking for a software providing such a feature (recursive folder encryption). This is a key feature for us, and would be used to automatically encrypt a whole network share (with many sub-folders) on a Windows server.

    If this was available on your AxCrypt software, we’d purchase it right now.

    Do you have a visibility on the software roadmap, and adding this feature in a future release ?

    Best regards.

    Hello Agostinho,

    It’s on the road map as mentioned, we just don’t have a timeframe. It’s not a technical difficulty, it’s how to add such a powerful feature without unwary users burning their fingers on it ;-)

    Thanks Svante,

    I understand, however as we need this feature right now, we should chose an alternative solution to be deployed in our environment.

    Indeed, our need is quite important and urgent, so we can’t wait for an undefined period of time.

    Thanks anyway for your assistance.

    Best regards.
