I have documents encrypted on an external hard drive. When I try to open them on my Mac using AxCrypt 2.2.688.0 Premium, I get the following error message:
Exception during processing of…(path name)… [Access to the path…(path name)… is denied. ->Access to the path …(path name)… is denied.]
Please avoid sending a same query in different mediums. You may get a duplicate response.
AxCrypt is a file encryption software and it requires a full write access to the path when encrypting/decrypting the files.
If the performing user account does not have the necessary access for the file path then AxCrypt app will throw the exception like what you are getting.
Please provide the necessary access(write access for the currently signed in user) to the file path and then try to encrypt/decrypt the files under the specified location.
