Hello Mike,

The recent files list is stored in a regular text file in the folder %localappdata%\AxCrypt . You can always check if it’s still there, it’s named FileSystemState.txt, and you can open it with Notepad or any other text editor to inspect it.

Not sure, but possibly, if you *reset* your Windows password, or re-install Windows, it might become empty. We encrypt the clear text file names in the recent files list locally using a Windows encryption facility that is tied to the Windows login account.
