    I just signed up to a premium account trial , I have been using the free copy for a year.

    Hi I have a 3 terrabyte USB drive plugged in that I use to back up my private files to.

    So in Axcrypt I right clicked in the Secure folders window and added the folder containing the back files G:\MyBackup

    The folder was accepted all ok.

    I signed out of Axcrypt and signed out of the windows user I keep for my accounts.

    I signed in then with just another common account we use for this pc and I was able to go to G: and to MyBackup and view all of the files I thought were in the secured folder

    What am I doing wrong please ?

    Hello Trev,

    Your G: MyBackup folder is encrypted or not?. if you have added the folder in the secured folder Please wait to sign out the AxCrypt app until the encryption process complete.
