First, thanks for your works, i use AxCrypt 1 since the start :)
I use AxCrypt (Premium) v184.108.40.2068.0 x64 on Windows 7 x64 (Enterprise Edition)
1°) When i encrypt files directly from Windows File Explorer, i do not have progress information, so i must wait and regulary check if all files are encrypted to be sure that AxCrypt has finish. Has with AxCrypt v1, i use it 90% of time with File Explorer context menu. It is possible to improve this ?
2°) Encrypting with File Explorer context menu seem very slow, i notice if i do it directly from AxCrypt, it is quicker.
3°) File Wipe (Shreeding) not work if i do it with Windows File Explorer context menu (Files are not locked, i check this with IObit Unlocker to be sure) and that freez AxCrypt, i must each time kill it and restart it.
That’s all for today :)

Thank you very much for your feedback and reports.
1 – There is progress information in the main window, just bring it up and you’ll see it. We did not want to pop up a window everytime, but perhaps we should.
2 – Yes, encrypting from Windows Explorer is slow, we know and we know why. We’ll fix it asap.
3 – We’ll have to look into that, last time I checked it did work, but we’ll check it again and if it works for us I may want to ask you to work with us to determine what the problem is in your case.

Ok, thanks for informations.
For File Wipe, i test on 2 different computers, first a Dell desktop with Windows 10 Pro, and second a Laptop Dell with Windows 7 Pro, and i have the same problem.

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.
