Espionage 3 / Rename folder on the list
« on: December 02, 2013, 06:32:32 PM »

I want to know if it's possible to change the name of the encrypted folder in the list of folders in the Espionage Menu.
It would be a nice help for me to organize the items better. If it isn't possible, I want to suggest that feature. It might also help for plausible deniability in particular cases (maybe).


Espionage 3 / Secure Cloud Idea
« on: July 01, 2013, 05:29:47 PM »
Hello Forum Members,

I am an Espionage user since many years and I do like it a lot, but after Apple Filevault 2, my need for it has been slowly decreasing... I wanted to start the discussion about the possibility to implement the EncFS filesystem within Espionage. Such file images would allow efficient encryption on cloud based storage service (read Dropbox, etc.) and imho, could make Espionage a very nice option for efficient data cloud storage. Maybe later an app to be able to read the files from an iOS or Android Device could be a nice addition as well.

May something like that be possible?
Anybody interested on such a solution?


Espionage 2 / iSpy warning messages
« on: November 28, 2011, 03:53:12 PM »

was looking at the kernel.log and found some warning messages from iSpy like:

Code: [Select]
kernel[0]: [iSpy.kext] WARNING (749): couldn't find event for token: 254What do they mean? Are there normal messages? (maybe something not clean in my iSpy config?)


Espionage 2 / Safe to upgrade to Lion?
« on: July 20, 2011, 04:51:28 PM »

as I have several important files protected by Espionage, I wanted to explicitly ask if it is safe for us to upgrade to MacOS Lion today :)
Keep up the good work.


Espionage 2 / About the Espionage freeze while app launch (beach ball)
« on: April 17, 2011, 02:11:44 PM »
(I did a quick search and did not find other posts related to this subject, but I think remember at least another one... excuse me for not following that thread.)

Description: sometimes you want to launch an app with folders associated to Espionage disk images and the beach ball appears for about a minute, with the app bouncing at the dock. After that minute, the app stops bouncing, you launch it again, and everything works fine.

The "maybe" new information: I have notice that this problem is easier to reproduce if you have several image in Espionage to mount. I think that the cause might be to close an app with some Espionage images associations and relaunch it while Espionage while it's still unmounting the folders (for example).

In short: It might be that while Espionage is mounting or unmounting images, if you launch an app that needs access to those disk images, Espionage shows us the spinning ball for about an entire minute.

Hope this helps,  :)

Espionage 2 / Protect invisible folders (the ones with a dot)
« on: March 19, 2011, 06:08:31 PM »

I want to know if it may be possible to encrypt an invisible folder. The problem is that I can't move it from my home and I don't want to encrypt the complete home folder. I can't select it from the Espionage app.

Any ideas?  :roll:

Thanks  :)

Espionage 2 / Espionage menu idea
« on: January 19, 2011, 01:48:10 AM »

 :idea: Maybe it could be possible to add a checkbox near the Espionage folders (or something), that could allow users to select which folders will be listed on the Espionage menubar (global status menu).

Some users (like me) use several folders, and the menu looks a little bit too crowded. I might find very useful to show only the group I usually interact with on the menu, instead of the entire list, which we have the Espionage app for. For example, the OmniFocus template adds 4 folders to the menu.

Hope the user feedback is welcome!


Espionage 2 Tips / Folders mount order
« on: January 18, 2011, 01:49:36 PM »
Hello Espionage Users,

this tip is for users of folders with the "Autounlock at login" option enabled.

I have noticed that when I reboot my Mac I have to wait some seconds after the Desktop appears, to open Safari or Mail app, as Espionage needs some time to mount the folders... If you open one of them too soon, you get the message that a folder needs your password to be available... and if you cancel and wait a little, you can open the app as expected.

I have seen that if you reorder the folders in the main Espionage window, you can change the actual mount order used by Espionage. Doing it, I could put the apps I usually load at startup first. Great!

I specially recommend to move SyncServices to the top, as many apps need it.

Maybe you already knew it, but well, here it is anyways. :)


Espionage 2 / Verify image structure blocks Espionage image mount
« on: December 14, 2010, 08:52:55 PM »

as I have important information on the images created by Espionage, I wanted to verify permissions and structure of the images.
I used Apple DiskUtility to do it. It founded structure problems on some of the images (SyncService was one of them). After the check, I realized the images were unmounted and after that, they were impossible to be mounted again (using either the Espionage menu or the app).
I needed to reboot to be able to mount the volumes again. :(

Is it ok to verify disk the images using the Apple Disk Utility?
Anything I can do to solve this issue?


Espionage 2 / Unlock a folder using the menu
« on: September 08, 2010, 06:07:35 AM »
Hello greg,

I noticed that now I can't unlock a folder using the "Unlock" menu option:

I am directed to the correct location, but the folder isn't unlocked:

Bug or am I doing something wrong?
I am using version 2.8.5.



not sure something went a little wrong, but after the 2.8 update I get the message "Alert! Please lock '<folderName>' prior to moving or renaming it" on every computer startup.

Is there something I can do to tell Espionage everything it´s good so it wont complain?


Espionage 2 / Timemachine different behaviour as stated
« on: June 20, 2010, 01:44:01 AM »

I followed the instructions in the tips (viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3) to backup with TM excluding the 10 Espionage protected folders I use.

I locked all of them, added them to the TM exclusion list, then unlocked them, and to my surprise, they were all gone for the TM list!
I think it auto delete them, because they change or something alike.

I am waiting for a fix before I start to backup, as I cannot use my old backup method anymore.

Any help?

Espionage 2 / Access unlocked folder from Parallels
« on: June 10, 2010, 03:34:31 PM »
I tried to access an unlocked folder from within Parallels shared mac-home directory (it´s mounted like a network disk in Windows XP). When I reach the mac-symlink using windows explorer I get the a message that the folder could not be found, forcing me to copy the files outside the protected folder to be able to access them.

Any ideas?

(MacBookPro, Snow Leopard, Parallels 5.0.9344)
