Hello Anonymous,

AxCrypt will set the last modified and created time stamps to the current date & time on any encryption operation, and store the original files time stamps inside the encrypted .axx file as part of the meta data stored there along with the actual encrypted data. So the encrypted .axx file will have time stamps reflecting the time of the encryption, which of course includes an update.

When decrypting, the original unencrypted files time stamps will be restored.

If you are seeing any other behavior, please explain the exact sequence of events, preferrably with screen shots so we can understand just what it is you’re seeing as opposed to what you’re expecting.
