Hello Wahl,

If AxCrypt says “Access Denied”, that’s because Windows does not allow your user access to the files. There are many reasons why this may happen, but they are not to do with AxCrypt. Please Google and check NTFS file permissions and possibly also EFS Encrypting File System to determine what the cause may be. It may be as simple that you need to take ownership or give permissions.
