Although I have checked the box saying ‘Remember this for decryption’ I have to manually enter my passphrase each time I encrypt a file (I use the context menu via right clicking the file).
Thanks.May 19, 2016 at 14:30 #3123
I have two suggestions in fact!
1) Try the new version 2 AxCrypt! Download from http://www.axcrypt.net/ .
2) Note that the AxCrypt 1.x dialog has two checkboxes. “Remember this for Decryption” and “Remember this for Encryption“. According to your question, you have checked the box for Decryption, and you ask why it’s not ‘taking’ when you Encrypt. Try checking the other checkbox to set a default for Encryption!
Yes, it can be a bit confusing, that’s why we’ve remade this completely in version 2, and made it so you’ll only ever really be using one password, and it’s remembered for encryption as well as for decryption while you’re signed in.

Actually both “Remember this for Decryption” and “Remember this for Encryption“ are checked–sorry I wasn’t clear about that.
I am writing from a different computer now so I will have to check which version I have installed. I am still confused about why my passphrase is not sticky in Version 1 if both dialog boxes as described above are checked!May 20, 2016 at 06:54 #3136
The password is sticky as long as you remain in a session. If you sign out of Windows or end AxCrypt, then the password needs to be re-entered.
If you have the checkboxes you have version 1.x. Version 2 looks and works differently, and makes this part easier. Try it out!

Is there also a free version of AxCrypt version 2? I downloaded it but it seemed to indicate it was a 30-day free trial of a premium product. Am I misunderstanding?May 22, 2016 at 14:17 #3178
First – please do not hijack one thread subject with a different subject. It makes it hard to follow and answer.
The Free and the Premium is the same software, but with Premium some extra features are available. See http://www.axcrypt.net/pricing/ for a feature comparison list.

Sorry to have highjacked the thread–I was treating this as a conversation. Anyway, thanks for the advice re Version 2. I downloaded and installed it, and it is working great.

Glad to hear that it’s working out for you, that’s the main thing!
