Hello Paul,

This is indeed so. It has to do with how applications works and how AxCrypt can determine if a file is “free” for re-encryption or not.

With Notepad, there’s no way to know what it has open so when a file is opened with Notepad AxCrypt waits until *all* instances of Notepad are closed. This is the same for many applications.
