Hello jjruiz,

AxCrypt 2 will try to open an encrypted file with the password you use for sign in to the app.

If that fails, it will prompt you for a file password, and if it’s a version 1 file give you the option to provide the path to a key file (key files are not supported in AxCrypt 2, except for backwards compatibility with AxCrypt 1).

If an AxCrypt 1 file is successfully opened, it will (by default) be re-encrypted with the AxCrypt 2 password and upgraded to AxCrypt 2 format including AES-256 if you have Premium.

You can also bulk-upgrade AxCrypt 1 files from the menus.
