not opening folders, seems to delete data

Bug Description

I installed and attempted to import an encfs encrypted folder that had been encrypted with cryptkeeper. However, it set it all up and ran my external hard drive, where I kept the folder, then it won't show the folder and it appears as if it deleted my entire external hard drive data. Causing great agony over irreplaceable data. It won't open or show the encrypted folder at all

I can confirm that Cryptfolder Indicator delets existing folder contents. It's like it tries to create the encrypted folders instead of just importing them...

I lost all my cryptfolder, I will try to restore this folder with some tool but I think it's something lost...

I have a backup of it but it has 6 month old...

I don't think to use it anymore as it's not something sure...

I will make a crypt disk or hardfile where I will have more control of it as it will use the same crypting technology of the filesystem.

Don't know if it's not secure why it was put in the list of download, it's not for a normal user 'til it's not more robust.

good luck...
