I am trying to Encrypt a file which is on a NTFS network drive with the option "Compress drive to save disk space".
During the encryption operation a message appears :
"Myfile.xls cannot be shredded in a secure way by AxCrypt.The file is compressed or encrypted by the file system, this requires low level routines not provided in AxCrypt. Please either change the file or directory attributes, or install a special purpose utility for this task."
However, the ecnryption operation continues and a file with extension .axx is created.
Is the result of the operation safe? Or will readible copies of the original file still exist on the server?
