It’s happened like you said. I had 1.7 encrypted a bunch of files and then close it.
I opened it up and then got asked to update to version 2.1.1481.0 so I thought “Why not?” and then after the update I was asked for a password.
I entered the password that I had set from before, only one main password, and then I got logged in.
After that all the files keep asking me for a “File password” that I never set.
The password that I did set it was good enough to get me in to AxCrypt only, I tried it as a “File password” and didn’t work.
It was a sentence with three or four numbers and special characters in the end and after a few days now I can’t remember the order
Can I crack it somehow with brute force???
Thanks a lot for the help man!!!
