Hello Svante,

You indicate that files are re-encrypted after exiting AxCrypt: “AxCrypt monitors the system for the launched app to exit, and when it detects this it will re-encrypt the file and wipe (overwrite) the decrypted file and then delete it.”

However I see multiple unencrypted files in the folder: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\AxCrypt. I see these files when the app is closed (not launched) or after exiting the app. Is that normal behavior? Are these files automatically cleaned after a while?

Kind regards,
