Hello, I have used an old version of AxCrypt for many years on my home computer. Recently I had to reformat my Windows machine and in the process upgraded to Windows 10. When I downloaded AxCrypt I discovered that it was a new version. When I tried to open a previously encrypted file it asked for my e-mail and password. I didn’t remember every registering so I went ahead and registered. Now when I try and open a file it gives me this alert: “warning: [file path name-doc.axx] is not an AxCrypt file”. It doesn’t ask for a password or whether I want to convert it or not.
Is there a way to access these files with the new version? Would uninstalling and loading an older version give me access to these files?
