    I am unable to find any instructions on how to encrypt an entire folder, not just files. The application appears to only allow me to encrypt files and then in AxCrypt, develop a folder for the files. I want to be able to encrypt and entire folder. Please advise if an how to encrypt a folder. Thank you.

    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.
