    I notice that on my Mac that files that have been decrypted and then closed, remain unencrypted in the ‘macintosh HD/users/[username]/.local/share/AXCrypt/[random directory names]

    Is this by design as this seems to work against what AXCrypt does. These files don’t appear to remain on Windows operating systems. Or am I doing something wrong?

    Hello Rikki,

    Are you sure about this – that the temporary files remain even after the red broom icon is cleared or AxCrypt is exited? AxCrypt does indeed temporarily decrypt the files to the location in question, and then open them from there. Once you are done, or exit AxCrypt, they will be overwritten and deleted (after re-encryption if required). This is at least how it is designed to work.
