Espionage 3 / Re: Cannot lock as file being used by:
« on: October 18, 2015, 08:12:01 PM »
After many trial and error attempts to discover what was causing errors and data loss I have concluded that the folder has a problem. I came to this conclusion because with the file unlocked in E3 a double click and select of Decrypt Folder causes a Restore failed message (attached).

Looking at some of the files in the folder there were a number that Finder decided were invisible. I have recreated all the data from a distinct, not in Espionage, source and the new folder appears to function properly in Espionage.

thanks zsolt, usually there are only 2 applications involved, possibly 3 if you include Finder. They are Numbers and Microsoft Excel Version 15.15. when I cannot eject I basically shut down all running apps, to no avail.

I also have a GDrive Mobile and it also has the same issue in that sometimes I'm unable to eject it, force quit is the only way.

Regardless, thanks for the info and help

it gets even better. while attempting to lock the file espionage decided there was a problem, trashed my folder, created a sparsebundle and a password and there I was with no data. attempting to use the sparsebundle was a serious problem as when I attempted to unlock it Finder could not start. the created sparsebundle was basically useless.

the good news is I went thru this exercise not that long ago with Zsolt so I knew how to use my Time Machine backup. Unfortunately some data had not been captured, possibly due to the lock problem mentioned previously. I was lucky in that for a short time period while things were crashing I was able to move at least some of my data to a separate location outside of espionage.

not sure if any of this is due to El Capitan but I am becoming extremely nervous as to espionage reliability.

I am only able to lock a file by rebooting my computer. If I quit Espionage 3 and then restart it the file is unlocked.

after several days of panic and fiddling on my part Zsolt was able to recover my data as well as provide me with valuable education about the purposes of database3.

thank you Zsolt for superior customer service

zsolt, thanks for the detailed reply, your instructions are easily followed.

Unfortunately, clicking on small i shows a sparsebundle which I have but my data is not in that one. The data is in a different bundle and even though the dropdown is titled "change disk image location" when I point to the sparsebundle where my data actually is I get the enter password prompt.

I think a remote session is required unless you can tell me where I went wrong while attempting to tell espionage about the bundle I want to access

Espionage 3 / Cannot recover from TimeMachine
« on: September 28, 2015, 01:11:10 PM »
No idea how this happened but I have lost all my data,

* I have a Time Machine backup,
* I recover myhomefolder/Library/Application Support/com.teaoeffect.Espionage3/Data folder
* when I attempt to unlock the file I get a message that says DiskImage missing
* it actually is missing and is nowhere to be found on TimeMachine


I believe I know which sparse bundle has my data but when I attempt to use is there is a password request and I seem to have no clue what it is. I know my master password but that is not accepted.

Any clues as to what to do would be appreciated

I only discovered small i the other day but certainly after I finally tracked this issue down to Espionage, I was originally thinking the issue was probably XtraFinder. I may or may not have changed the Spotlight default but since I don't know what the default is I will say that at the moment Spotlight enabled is checked.

Zsolt

My use of Spotlight has been limited to Spotlight Privacy +- to index the folder(s) on several occasions but most of the time there is nothing in Privacy.

Espionage 3 / Unlocking File makes Finder search no longer function
« on: November 30, 2014, 02:49:55 PM »
software Yosemite OS X 10.10.1 (14B25), Espionage 3.6.2
after unlocking an Espionage folder Search in Finder never finds anything.
Spotlight continues to work
this is repeatable, at least for my system
  • boot machine
  • start finder and Finder search works perfectly
  • Espionage running but nothing unlocked
  • finder search still works
  • unlock folder
  • Finder now unable to find files, spotlight still works
