AxCrypt 2 opens all AxCrypt 1-encrypted files. However, we’ve seen a similar issue with some custom text file associations, specifically when .txt is associated with another program, whose only purpose is to launch a second program and then exit. This confuses AxCrypt who thinks the first program is the real program, notes that it has exited and thus concludes you’re done with the file and then remove it.
We’ll be doing something to fix this, but we’re also trying to avoid getting into the AxCrypt 1-trap of trying to ad-hoc second guess various applications weird behavior. In the end, we may simply never automatically remove files, but always use the clean up (the red broom) function.
