The encrypting/de-crypting functionality of AxCrypt has been very glitchy lately and I’m contemplating an un-install and re-enstall of Version 2.1. My current version is 2.1.1547.0.
1. Are free version 2.1 from website and my currently installed version 2.1.1547.0 really the same thing? If not, should I expect any imcompatibility issues upon re-install?
2. Are there specific steps that you can share regarding how to do this “the right way.”
3. If I un-install current Axcrypt, are all of my Axcrypt-encrypted files then de-crypted and/or insecure during the interim until I can re-install and make operable again?
4. What happens with my existing password functionality in this scenario?
The current version is right now indeed 2.1.1547 and is the one available at https://www.axcrypt.net .
You should not see any incompatibilities in any case. We are always downwards compatible, i.e. newer versions always work with older encrypted files.
No special steps required – but do reboot if/when asked to.
Your files remain encrypted regardless of the install-state of AxCrypt.
Your files remain encrypted with the same password regardless of the install-state of AxCrypt or if you re-install.
