    I encrypted some files using Encrypt in Parallels Toolbox during my trial. The release notes say that Toolbox 6.6.0 can decrypt files after the trial ends, but when I open a .pboxz file, I only see a dialog saying the Toolbox trial has expired. What is the process for decrypting a .pboxz file?

    For those in similar circumstances, the .pboxz files will decrypt with Keka. Right-click and choose "Services/Extract using Keka"

    Hi Christopher,
    You can double-click the file > enter the password and click Decrypt, and it will be decrypted even after the expiration of the trial. Would you share more details about your issue, please?

    Thank you, Mikhail! I had been trying through the menu bar app and got nowhere. You are correct that attempting to open the file (rather than use the menu to select the Parallels toolbox app Encrypt) does work.

    Thanks, Christopher. A quick question from me: have you dragged and dropped the file to the app in the Toolbox app or you added the tool to the Mac menubar and dragged and dropped the file to it?
