Hello,

No, when temporary files are deleted by AxCrypt, they are first overwritten with random data. This does stop typical undelete utilities from recovering any information. With SSD drives, there may be other ways to get at the data, since they usually implement wear leveling – causing a write not to be a write just where you think the write is.

But, BitLocker or similar full disk encryption is a good complement to AxCrypt.
