Espionage 3 / Critical Alert warning - Failed to unlock folder
« on: January 26, 2016, 04:40:16 PM »

I recently purchased a new Mac. I have a secure folder on an external drive.  Prior to moving to the new Mac I looked up how to transfer the drive to the new Mac and understood that I needed to copy the folder Library->Application Support->com.taoeffect.Espionage3 to the same location on the new computer.  I did this and managed to successfully unlock the folder.  Everything looked good, so I reformatted the drive on the old computer. 

NOT the drive that the secure folder was on, just the main HDD on the old Mac.

Yesterday I updated my version of OS X to 10.11.4 beta 2, which may have been a mistake.  When I tried to unlock the folder today I get an error saying the file "F7355OF3-2B6E-473F-92EF-D31AA4EAAD12.sparebundle" could not be opened because there is no such file.  It should be here:  /volumes/LaCie/F7355OF3-2B6E-473F-92EF-D31AA4EAAD12.sparebundle

But here is the kicker.  I didn't make any changes to the LaCie drive, so if that file ever existed on /volumes/LaCie, it should still reside there now.  I also copied that folder com.taoeffect.Espionage3 to a thumb drive and looking there and in my folder in Application Support, the contents are identical.

Which is to say a folder called Backups with several backups; a folder called Data with 5 sparse bundle files, none of them with the name Espionage is looking for and a Temp folder with for sub-folders called _Rescued Items, Rescued Items_1, etc. Also in the root are Exec files database3 and license.

I tried downloading iVisable as was suggested in some other threads and looking for a hidden file of interest.  But nothing.  Not in the com.taoffect.Espionage3 folder or the LaCie drive.

Any help in recovering would be appreciated!
