I agree totally with Peter: you have broken the software by making it cumbersome! It is ridiculous that we must basically log on to Axcrypt every time we use it and that we must remember this complicated password you force the user to create when installing the software. You’ve taken what was once a simple encryption process where we were free to pick passwords each time we used it, and you’ve turned it into something that is not user friendly–apparently with the intent to push people to use your premium version.
I’ll search the internet for the older version. The url you gave for downloading the old version does not contain the older version.
