Hate to disagree but I did not ask for this file to be encrypted and yet it encrypted it.
When I saw the file in the list I tried to open it with Notepad and couldn’t read it anymore, the extension had been changed to .axx
I also did not click “Remove from list but keep file secured” but, as I indicated in my original post, clicked “Stop securing and remove from list”. It stopped securing but did not remove it from the list, at least I interpret that to mean from the list in Axcrypt under “Recent Files”. I also did not use the “Secured Folders” option.
Where does it get the recent file information from?
Could it be that it looks in the Windows recent file list, found the test .txt file I just created and auto encrypted it?
