There is no automatic deletion in gpg4win / GnuPG. Is there maybe any script that is interfering or is somehow your %APPDATA% directory removed after 5 days?

GnuPG stores keys in %APPDATA%\gnupg ( expands to c:\users\<username>\AppData\Roaming )

Or is there maybe some other tool or script deleting the key? How are you using it?

Prio Low as I think that this is more of a user question / help request and not a bug in our software.

On other tool using, we are using encryption command in .bat file and this file is being executed from .net code
