    Testing the new feature to rename files back to their original names doesn’t seem to be working. I’ve tested with a few, including renaming a new file and then trying to return it back and I get the below error:

    “Exception during processing of ‘C:/Users/*user*/Documents/Docs/1237116953.axx’ [Value cannot be null. Parameter name: fullName]”

    Hello Michael,

    Can you be more specific about how it is not working? What do you do, and what happens? Do you get an error message? If you can post a screen shot it helps a lot!

    i right click the file that i want restored to original name.  choose ‘rename to original’.  the first few times it just looked like

    it processed the request. but the file name remained the same. now when i try to rename the file, the response takes me to

    a website that asks me to buy axcrypt premium.

    i clicked ‘try premium’  (i missed that on the screen) and tried it again.  there is no response and no name change.

    Hello Michael,

    AxCrypt Premium subscription is required to access the features like Anonymous Rename and Rename to Original.

    Anonymous Rename used to hide the names of your secured files with the random names.

    Rename to Original used to restore the file names which are all Anonymous Renamed.

    So try use the Rename to Original feature with the anonymous Renamed files.

    If the above does not help, please send an email to with the detailed information.

    Hello ahmed,

    We’ve been trying to follow what’s happening through the logs – but it’s very hard to do because you’ve done so many things with so many email addresses (we’ve seen 4 I think)… Password resets, email changes, invites, deletions, re-creation etc.

    Of course you should not get an error like you’re seeing, but in order for us to understand the current situation we’ll need a complete error report as described here: .

    This will give us more insight in the current situation, even if we can’t follow all the details of the sequence of events up to this point.
