Opening a folder encrypted by an older version of Espionage

Postby Artistlin » Mon Jan 21, 2013 6:44 pm

I have a folder that was encrypted by an older version of Espionage on a different computer than on which it now resides. All the information was migrated over to the new computer. I just purchase a new copy of Espionage 2 (older version got uninstalled on the older machine before migration...don't ask) and tried to open it and received a Permissions Error message: "Espionage needs to be able to write to the parent folder (/).

There are no other folders that I know of...this is all I have. Did I manage to lose something along the way? How do I unencrypt the folder to get to the contents? Or am I stuck?

I am not very technical...go easy on me. Thanks

Hello, the problem probably happens because you have the protected folder directly in your home folder. Due to the way Espionage works, when you try to unlock the folder, it moves the disk image into the parent folder. So say, you protected a folder named important in your Documents folder, which is in your home folder. When you unlock the "important" Espionage will move the disk image which contains the data into your Documents folder, i.e. into the parent folder of the "important" folder.
This works fine as long as it all happens inside your home folder as there you have all the needed permissions.

But if the protected folder is somewhere outside of your home folder, then Espionage will not be able to move the disk image into parent folder due to permission restrictions.

So first try to move the protected folder into your home folder: Click on the protected folder, when the password prompt shows up, just click cancel, and now move the folder into your home folder. Now click somewhere else and then click on the folder again, enter the pass and see if it works.

Let me know
