    Anyone have further information about this application? Usually use encrypted zip files, but this would be nice.

    It's not really the encryption algorithm having an expiration.

    You can't protect stale data by expiring the encryption key.

    Anyone claiming that is offering Snake oil.

    QuickCrypt can only pretend to offer expiration of the encrypted data provided that its encryption implementation is deliberately made incompatible with an opensource implementation.

    And QuickCrypt is closed source and its author completely unknown.

    So be careful.
