It went brilliantly! Thank you for your clear, detailed and helpful instructions. Problem solved and I'm a very happy customer.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, Zsolt, I've been busy on other things. I've followed your instructions and even before I made the folder com.taoeffect.Espionage3 on my MacBook shared, I was able to navigate to it from my iMac.

I'm hoping that I won't have to duplicate it on my iMac because it's very large – over 500MB.

I'll wait to hear back from you and thanks again for your help here.

Philip

PS I'm still mystified about why a few months ago I could see the contents of the mounted encrypted MacBook disk when I logged in from my iMac but now I can't. What's changed?

So the two folders I want to copy between are photography and archive. In the Finder I can see the contents of photography on my iMac. In the Finder, I can see the contents of archive on my MacBook. But if I log in to my MacBook Air from my iMac, I can see the folder photography but it appears to be empty. I'm logging into my MacBook as myself, i.e. registered user/owner not as guest. Thanks.

Thanks, Zsolt. Both machines are running macOS 10.12.3.

On the iMac, the encrypted folder is called photography and the folder structure looks like this: /Users/philip/photography

On the MacBook, the encrypted folder is called archive and the folder structure looks like this: /Users/philip/archive

Does that give you the information you need?

Best wishes

Zsolt, thank you for getting back to me on this. No, I haven't upgraded either Mac to Sierra recently. I upgraded both soon after Sierra was released. Since then I've just been doing point updates as they're released.

By decrypting I do indeed mean unlocking the protected folders.

I'm afraid that synchronising via the cloud is not an option I want to pursue. The information in the Espionage folders is sensitive and I don't want to put it on anyone else's servers. Is there another workaround?

Best wishes

Philip

Espionage 3 / Can't see contents of decrypted folder from remote Mac
« on: February 12, 2017, 09:11:20 AM »
I use Espionage to protect a folder on my iMac. I have the same on my MacBook. In the past I’ve decrypted both folders to synchronise them by copying new documents over from the one to the other. This involves (typically) logging in to my MacBook (over my local network) from my iMac, navigating to the unencrypted folder and then dragging and dropping the relevant documents.

However when I tried to do that yesterday (and I tried multiple times in both directions), while I could see the unencrypted folder from the remote Mac, the folder appeared to be empty (on the local Mac it was full of documents). Please could you help me resolve this issue so I can synchronise the two Macs.

I'm using the most recent versions of Espionage and Sierra.

Espionage 3 / Re: "There isn't enough free space"

The SSD is now an internal disk instead of an external one. And the issue no longer arises. So it seems to be to do with external vs internal disk. It's not a problem for me at this stage but I guess it might be for someone in the future. Anyway, I'm back running smoothly now and thanks for your help. Philip

I'm tied up today. Tomorrow the SSD will become the internal startup drive of my iMac. Once that's done, I'll start experimenting again with Espionage and let you know how I get on. Thanks in the meanwhile for your support. Philip

Thanks for getting back to me, Zsolt. I followed your instructions and tried encrypting a folder whose contents weighed in at about 240MB. Espionage worked flawlessly. The problem seems to be related to the size of the folder to be encrypted. I've tried starting with a smaller folder and then adding more content. Unfortunately that doesn't work. Does this give you the information you need? BTW, I've arranged to have the external SSD inserted into my iMac later this week and at that point it will become the internal drive. Perhaps that will solve the problem for me in this instance? Best wishes, Philip

Espionage 3 / "There isn't enough free space"
« on: November 05, 2016, 10:39:02 PM »
I'm configuring a 2TB SSD, which will replace the HD in my iMac. Right now it's plugged via a USB port and I'm using it as a startup drive like that. I've installed Espionage (v 3.6.6) and I have a large folder (about 35GB) that I want to encrypt.

Here's the problem… When I drop the folder onto Espionage, I get the following message:'the item can't be copied because there isn't enough free space'.

There is almost 1.5TB of free space on the SSD so this doesn't make sense. I've tried restarting the Mac, reopening Espionage, etc. Nothing works. BTW, I'm running Mac OS 10.12.1.

Can anyone help me to find a solution?

Thanks for your helpful reply and I would have got back to you earlier but I've been away.

I'd be happy to follow you suggestion and in order to do so I wonder if you could tell me how to set up the encrypted disk on my laptop. I can copy across the original (unencrypted) folder and then encrypt it but that gives the encrypted disk a different name. Is it then safe to sync between two encrypted disks with different names?

Thanks again for your help.

Espionage 3 / syncing two macs
« on: July 11, 2013, 03:12:48 PM »
I an Espionage-encrypted folder on my desktop Mac that I'd like to keep synced with my laptop. My preference would be to do so using one-way syncing with ChronoSync.

First I unlock and mount the disk images on both machines.
Then I log into my laptop with my desktop machine.
But then the mounted disk image on my laptop isn't visible from my desktop machine so I can't sync them.

Please can you tell me how to make the mounted disk image on one Mac available from other other?

Thanks.
