I just upgraded from 1.7 to 2.1.
From this page: http://www.axcrypt.net/pricing/ it appears that “File Wipe” is now a premium feature.
Does this mean that without premium, Shred and Delete, which was always free, is now unavailable?
If yes, please reconsider, since it is unlikely that anyone will pay specifically for this feature.
It was so convenient not to have to install another program to shred files…
I can’t test it, because I was auto-enrolled in the 30-day free trial of premium.
Thank you for this awesome software!May 9, 2016 at 15:40 #3012
This is Svante from AxCrypt.
I hear you… This makes sense, I think. I’ll discuss this with the business side of things.
Thanks for your input. Anyone else reading this are welcome to cast their vote by posting here.August 10, 2016 at 21:06 #3858
Is there a follow-up to the discussion you had with the business side? Also, is there any way for a user to stop seeing that disclaimer that the action is permanent???
Thank you!August 19, 2016 at 14:03 #3887
Currently ‘shred and delete’ remains a premium feature.
We’ll consider add a “Do not show this any more” check box to the warning. Please note that this mimics the way Windows works when you delete files permanently. You’ll always get the warning then.August 19, 2016 at 14:55 #3888
Agreed that it mimics the way windows works, however, when I select multiple files in windows… It only warns me once and not for every file!!!August 19, 2016 at 15:10 #3889
Oops – that’s wrong of course. If that’s what happens. We’re doing some higher priority stuff right now so I can’t verfiy, but I’ve added an issue so we won’t forget to check it out: https://bitbucket.org/axantum/axcrypt-net/issues/188/shred-and-delete-should-only-warn-once .

I am a big fan of AxCrypt and I have used it for several years, but the free version as I cannot afford the present cost for premium.
I understand the limitations of ‘shred and delete’ on SSD but it is still better than not having it. I did use that feature quite often and I still miss it.
I would be great to have that feature back for the ‘personal user’.November 24, 2016 at 11:44 #4717
Thanks for the feedback – we’ll see how the future looks. We’re considering other options for how to package AxCrypt, but for now it’s like it is. But the feedback is important, since it affects how we develop the product, so thanks!
