Summary17145: File Upload encryption fails to decrypt properly
DescriptionIf the encrypted flag is set on a file upload question the filename appears to become encrypted, but does not decrypt properly and then upload file cannot be retrieved.
Steps To ReproduceCreate a test survey with a file upload question. Set the option for encryption to YES.
Activate the survey and do a file upload.
An email sent to indicate a completed survey will show the filename encrypted.

View the records using "responses and statistics, display responses" properly shows the filename.
Clicking on the filename generates a "file cannot be found" error.

Looking for the actual file within the uploads directory shows the file does exist.
TagsNo tags attached.
