Dean – if you’re ever at all concerned (or you just want to check) if your file has been encrypted by AxCrypt then all you need to do is look inside the folder which contains your file and the extension will be .AXX. If it has .AXX then it means it’s encrypted.

Another method is to see if the file has the AxCrypt padlock as its icon. But depending upon your computer is set up it may not show a padlock but this does not matter – as long as the file ends .AXX then it is securely encrypted.
