I have been using AxCrypt for over a year with no problems. I backed up about 50 encrypted files to a flash drive because i needed to format my computer where these files were stored.
i've kept a backup of the encrypted files for quite awhile simply for the reason of backup.
When i put the files back on my computer, ten of them do not open with this "GUID Mismatch" error. they seem like a random ten, although they are alphabetically consecutive, but not at the top or bottom of the list.
They are varied encrypted files, including .doc and .jpg.
I ran XP awhile ago, but sent the files over to Vista around a year ago and they have been able to open with Vista before this incident.
I have visited the Troubleshooting link that talks about this problem and tried updating to the Beta to no avail.
I have also tried changing the registry entry to allow AxCrpyt to attempt to open broken files, but that does not work, and the registry entry does not exist when the Beta is install, so i cannot update AND try this method.
When copying the Meta info into notepad, i paste one number (i.e. 3 or 5) and that is it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
