What is an .AES file?

.AES is AES Crypt Encrypted File

File encrypted by AES Crypt, a program used for securing files with AES encryption; stores a file that has been protected by a 256-bit encryption algorithm and a password; requires the password that was used to encrypt the file in order to decrypt the file back to the original.

AES files are useful for protecting sensitive personal and business documents. AES Crypt users often encrypt documents and send them via email.

When AES Crypt creates an encrypted file, it append the ".aes" extension to the filename. For example, when AES Crypt encrypts a document named mydocument.docx, it creates a new file named mydocument.docx.aes. You can double-click this file and type the password in order to access the original file.

NOTE: Since AES is a common form of encryption, other encryption programs may also use the ".aes" extension.

You must enable log files in order for the ooVoo to create them. Select ooVoo → Preferences... → Support and check the "Enable Debug Logging" checkbox.

In Mac OS X, the AES files are stored in the following directory: /Users/[username]/Library/Containers/com.oovoo.mac/Data/Library/ Logs/ooVoo

Mac: Right click (or Ctrl-click) the AES file, then click "Open with" > "Other...". Then choose another program and check the "Always Open With" box. Linux: Right click on the file, and select "Open with" and choose another program. iPhone: Tap the file. If you do not see an app to open the file, then tap Share "Share" and choose an app. Alternatively, save the file.

Then tap "Share" and select an app. Android: Tap the Settings icon on your smartphone, then tap on the Apps section. There tap the Options icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen to change the default apps.
  • Update your software that should actually open .AES is AES Crypt Encrypted File. Because only the current version supports the latest AES file format. Search, therefore, e.g. on the Packetizer manufacturer website after an available .AES is AES Crypt Encrypted File update.
  • To make sure that your AES file is not corrupted or virus-infected, get the file again and scan it with antivirus software.
