Hello Jay,

It has no own logging to the Windows event logs. If the .NET framework crashes for example, it will log. In either case, AxCrypt will not log any normal activity.

AxCrypt does do it’s own logging to a text file, and it can be found in %localappdata%\AxCrypt . It will not log normal activity, only error situations and such.

In %localappdata% there is also a file describing the list of files in the recent files view, and the secured folders view. The original file names are encrypted, but not the folder names and encrypted files – after all, they are visible in Windows Explorer anyway so it makes little sense to “hide” them as they are in plain sight anyway.
