So after some research on the forums, I discovered that simply right clicking the folder I want to encrypt and selecting the encrypt option does nothing for me. I opened AxCrypt and clicked + to add a new file for encryption and navigated to the file I wanted to encrypt with all of its sub-files. This is where I get lost, as there is no “add” or “encrypt” button or anything. Just “open” which opens the file and shows me the sub-files and “cancel”. I’m using ver. 2.1.1547.0 Free.
How about reading “Getting Started” on our web site ;-) ? We also have some very short introductory videos. Check out https://www.axcrypt.net/ .
I think your main issue is that you’re trying to select folders, not files. AxCrypt encrypts files, not folders (although of course we do encrypt all files in a folder should you wish to).
In Windows and most operating systems, a folder is the container that contains files. Only folders have sub-folders (there’s not really anything called sub-files like you are mentioning, so I’m assuming you mean sub-folders).
