Decrypt problem (with wrong password use 1 time)

Hello.

Sorry my english!!

I have a problem decrypting files.

I encrypt files using this password: 12345678.
I try to decrypt using WRONG password: 11111111.
The program look like is decrypting, and the file modification date is changed.
Obviusly the file doesn´t work.
I try to decript again using the correct password.
The program look like is decrypting, and the file modification date is changed.
The files doesn´t work.

So i think that if you try to decrypt one time with a wrong password, you corrupt the file.

I have important files with this problem.
Any way to solve this problem?.

What

version are you using? There was an issue with this but the system that had this issue was last included in Toucan almost a year ago, and it hadn't been default or recommended for almost another year before that! This is clearly noted on the Toucan front page and the Toucan support page.

According

to my notes there never was a version 1.1.2, did you mean 1.2.1?

Are

there any options to chose a different encryption method in your version? If so did you use Blowfish or AES? I fear your data may be lost, if it is using the blowfish method then this was it's failing and why it was quickly replaced, in any case you are using a version of Toucan that is well over a year and a half old, and thirteen releases behind the current one and is such not supported I am afraid.
