Hello Dafney Dewitt,
AxCrypt encrypted files are still encrypted state if we delete the encrypted file from the system.
If restore the encrypted file, No way the encrypted file to change unencrypted state in the system. Still, your files are encrypted state only.
I think, if you try to open the restore encrypted file using AxCrypt app.now AxCrypt app open the encrypted files.
Please note: AxCrypt 2 now use a single sign-on model where the same password is used to sign in to our servers and to protect your files.
AxCrypt app are required to open/decrypt the AxCrypt encrypted files. without AxCrypt app we cannot decrypt the encrypted files.
Still, if you are facing any issues, please write to Support@axcrypt.net. we are happy to help you.
