Espionage 2 / Re: espionage2 works on Maverick (sort of)

Go to the applications folder and open Utilities. From there open Activity Monitor.
You will see several tabs, click on CPU. Go to the search bar on the right of the Activity Monitor (field with loop glass icon)
Type Espionage in this field and the results should be reduced to one entry.
Select this entry by left clicking on it and click on the button with a X in it.
It will ask you if you are sure you want to end this process. Choose Force Quit instead of the regular Quit at this stage.

After this restart Espionage2 by opening it from your application folder.
Enter your master key in the popup of Espionage2 as you woul normaly.
Depending on your system it can take a while as it is generating a lot of errors.

When it is finaly loaded proceed to unlock an decrypt your folders one by one. after you have confirmed that all folders are decrypted move them out of there regular folder for safekeeping.

Press the minus button at each folder you have encrypted or is interacting with espionage2 at the current time.
Than proceed to move your cursor to the application bar at the top of your screen and select Espionage. Select uninstall from the dropdown menu and follow any further instructions.

Incase you can not uninstall Espionage2 from this menu do not go around deleting things yourself ask support at

(power users be sure to clean Console user diagnostics up. It gets really messy)

The above information is rendered obsolete please use the guide attached in this message.

Admin edit: I love you guys. Thanks m661 for making this guide!  :)

We're preparing an official guide right now (based on the info we've received from customers). We'll post it to this forum tomorrow (October 25th, 2013) Saturday (October 26, 2013) and make it a "sticky". Keep an eye out for it!

Edit2: We discovered some insane Mavericks behavior that held up the guide. Sorry! It should be up on the 26th (evening).

Edit3: Here it is, please follow the official guide:

Glad to see a official reaction on this thanks Greg. Aslong as a lesson is taken from it is never a loss except for time mostly.

I have noticed that espionage2 behaves after a force quit for a good 6 to 8 hours. Still any chance of a last fix for v2 to atleast provide  customers a way out without having to dabble into activity monitor? Maybe with a nice big warning that further use on Mavericks is not supported.

Also you might want to edit the blog as it mentions about the appstore version of espionage implying that the 15% discount is on the appstore instead. As the blog post notifying people is older than the current post. (

Might confuse people that do not know there is no global discount method on the appstore (except the limited 50 promo codes per version offered by Apple)

Just want to give a heads up that force quiting the espionage helper after opening espionage2 itself results in perfectly working program with the ability to mount unmount and encrypt, decrypt folders files. I would not recommend to stick with it for longer than you have to but it is possible to get all your data back without having to resort to back ups. In short your not screwed if you did install mavericks before uninstalling espionage2

To the developers next time you might want to check if your program works as intended with a gold master copy as warning people almost a entire day after the release of a upgrade is a really bad call.
