Hello Richard,

AxCrypt is a file encryption software. It does not create encrypted folders. This is a very different type of application. If you’re running Windows I suggest you use the built-in functionality for this – Encrypting File System, or EFS. Do remember to backup your recovery certificate (you’ll be prompted)! Or else, you risk data loss if you need to re-install Windows, or your computer crashes beyond recovery.
