Deleting the Cryptainer Volume  
To remove Cryptainer completely from your machine, you will need to delete the volume file that you have created. The Cryptainer Drive (vault) is actually a file. All data is stored encrypted within this file. The file behaves like a regular Windows drive only after mounting it through the program interface. Once you exit Cryptainer, the volume is like any other file or folder on the Windows system. You can delete the volume like you delete any other file.  
By default, Cryptainer creates a volume in the ../../system32 directory. In Windows 2000 Systems, the default location is ...\WINNT\system32\cxl17xx while on Win XP and Win 98, it is ...\Windows\system32\cxl17xx.
