    Can I create an encrypted copy of a file or folder while leaving the original uncrypted?

    Once I’ve encrypted a file, do I need to enter it’s password each time I open it on my computer?

    Hello Ron,

    Sorry to say, Currently AxCrypt 2.x does not support this encrypt or unencrypt Copy features.

    I will explain How AxCrypt(2.x) Works:

    AxCrypt 2 works just like your email software or most other password-protected systems. You sign in once and remain signed in until signed out. Just like you can read many emails without entering the password every time, AxCrypt will do the same. The files are still encrypted, but your password is remembered until you sign out of AxCrypt.

    AxCrypt stays signed in until signed out, just like most similar applications such as your email. Once signed in, you can read, write and update information without having to re-enter the password, until signed out. AxCrypt will automatically sign out when the screen saver goes active(based on the Inactivity Sign Out configuration), or you can sign out manually.

    You can use our Inactivity Sign Out feature, to sign out the AxCrypt app on certain time interval of inactivity. Also you can sign out the AxCrypt app, when opened the encrypted file(s). Now AxCrypt will ask the user to enter the sign in password to sign in to the AxCrypt app. For Inactivity Sign Out, File | Options | Inactivity Sign Out | Choose duration in minutes.

    Please note: Inactivity Sign Out is s premium feature.

    If someone knows your system password, so you can sign out the AxCrypt app manually.

    Still, if you are facing any questions/issues, please write to we are happy to help you.
