AxCrypt uses 128bit encryption as standard, but if you truly want to use the full 128bit encryption’s strength, then you should also use a Key-File with your encryption.
Cryptographic primitives are AES-128 and SHA-1. AxCrypt does not secure your entire computer, nor does it posses this functionality. If you wish to encrypt your computer fully, (full disk encryption) then please follow our Truecrypt tutorial here. AxCrypt includes an inbuilt file shredder and can encrypt files that are larger than 4GB.
