I am just wondering: when a file is encrypted, is the original file hidden or deleted or…? Does axCrypt create a new file on the hard drive and at the same time wipe the original one ? If this is the case, I assume it needs to “write” twice on the hard drive. Am I correct ?
AxCrypt application will not encrypt/decrypt files automatically. Without user interaction AxCrypt application will not encrypt/decrypt the file in the user’s system. If you encrypt the file/folder, you will encrypt the file manually.
