This seems to be incompatible with windows 8.1. It stops working and damages my windows update files. Before it quit working I was able to use it on a bunch of files and flash drives that I am now locked out of. I’m done with this I just want to get my files back and be rid of this program.
What you describe is extremely unlikely to be caused by AxCrypt. It is perfectly compatible with Windows 8.1, and it has no concept or reference whatsoever to “windows update files”.
Please contact our support, and be sure to include screen shots of the actual problem situations, and we’ll try to help you sort things out, or at least narrow it down to what component is actually the problem here if it’s not AxCrypt.
