    Hello,

    I accidentally clicked the secure delete button thinking that I was clicking on the decryption button. I would like to know if there is any way to recover my files because they were hugely important.

    Reply as soon as possible please.Thank you.

    Secure delete is exactly that.

    “Hugely important” files should always be backed up.

    There is no way to recover your files.

    If they are very valuable files then you could consider paying a forensics firm a lot of money to see if they can recover anything from your hard disk.

    Hello Jérémy,

    The shredding, or wiping(secure delete), feature of AxCrypt allows you to erase files in a way that makes it impossible to recover the contents with undeletion software. However, there are some caveats:

    • The name of the file, as well as the size, may be recovered.
    • If the file has been viewed or edited with an application that creates temporary copies of the content (such as Microsoft Office), those temporary copies may still be available for undeletion on your hard disk.

    For more informations, please visit our information site https://www.axcrypt.net/information/security/ and http://www.axantum.com/AxCrypt/etc/seagate128vs256.pdf (For AES 128 & 256 bit).

    Always keep a backup of all your important files, encrypted or not.
