thanks for your response but I’m afraid it’s not as simples as you’ve described.
The last modified dates of the files (just 3 of over 50) I cannot access are dated a month after I installed the pc they now reside on and a few days before registering and installing axcrypt 2. Older files can still be opened successfully using the my old password which was the same for ALL files.
I have tried AxCrypt2go but it just asks for a password again on those 3 files. I have also tried AxDecrypt but it also asks for a password.
I would like to just remove AxCrypt now and Decrypt all my files so I can access them. Please let me know how I do that.
