Hello, Roger. Thanks for your reply.
The reason I’m confused is because it has always been possible to encrypt folders within folders with AxCrypt, by selecting the root folder, right-clicking, and selecting “Encrypt” from the context menu. I do understand how it would be an awful mistake to encrypt, for example, your Windows folder and all subfolders therein. But it was already possible to do this.
Now we have this option setting to “Include Subfolders.” Since encryption of subfolders was already enabled (when using the contextual menu), what is this newly minted option enabling?
