    Currently utilizing the older 1.x legacy Axcrypt in a Windows terminal server environment to encrypt shared drive folders/files. Of course there are multiple users given the environment who are all using one, and only one, password.  Up until now this has worked and worked well.

    We have now upgraded hardware along with moving to M365 Business Premium.  Now we can’t open more than one encrypted Excel document at once and are having random errors when saving files. My concern is the new business model requiring an email account and password.

    In an environment where everyone is using the same password to decrypt and open files (they don’t usually encrypt files themselves) I’m not sure if Axcrypt will work for us unless every user account within the terminal server can sign in with the same email address and password. Not to mention the legal logistics surrounding that method.

    Assuming it won’t work this way does anyone have any recommendations?

    Hello Brad,

    AxCrypt will keep track on the opened encrypted files, to update and re-encrypt the same. If we opened the file and updated the contents, then AxCrypt will re-encrypt the updated file.

    So after editing the encrypted files, we have to click the broom icon or sign out from the AxCrypt app to re-encrypt the updated files.We have to close all the instance of the encrypted file(s) opened application.

    And the AxCrypt app will be checking whether the opened file and the corresponding application are closed or not? If closed, then the AxCrypt app will automatically update the contents of the file and re-encrypt the same.

    Actually, we have to close the file opened application completely, to update and re-encrypt the file. Sometimes, we have to manually click the red Broom icon, to clean and update the pending files.

    Please note: If you opened and updated an encrypted text file with notepad and at the same time you had opened an another notepad application also, then you have to close both the opened applications to re-encrypt the encrypted files. You have to close all the opened corresponding applications properly.

    Please close the encrypted file and corresponding file, then you can signout/exit from the AxCrypt app.

    I’m not sure if Axcrypt will work for us unless every user account within the terminal server can sign in with the same email address and password. — more then one person use the same account, Sometimes this leads to security breach.

    If you have a business account, Please purchase the member for the business account. then you can use the key sharing or master key feature. you can achieve the same.

    If you have any queries, please feel free to contact our support via support@axcrypt.net.
