Fresh instal Sierra and encrypted folder
« on: November 16, 2016, 05:15:47 AM »
Hello,
I installed Sierra from scratch but I forgot to unprotect some folders encrypted with Espionage 3.
These folders are in my dropbox and I have the password but the new instal of Espionage doesn't see the folded to encrypt.
I was trying to follow some posts here but without any result as I don't have the old time machine backup.
Can anybody help me?

Thanks!

Hello, if you do not have a copy of your Library/Application Support/com.taoeffect.Espionage3 folder from the time Espionage worked, then the data is lost.
From your description I do not know if you have in dropbox only the mountpoint folder or the disk images or both, but if you do not have the Espionage database from the aforementioned folder, then we are missing the passwords to unlock the disk images, so again, we cannot do anything with the data.

If you have a copy of the folder, then let me know and we can set it up.

Perfect. Now we need to replace the current Library/Application Support/com.taoeffect.Espionage3 folder with the one you found.

Quit espionage

Hold down the option key, and from the Finder's go menu, select Library, this will take you into the appropriate library folder. Now go to application support, and rename the com.taoeffect.Espionage3 folder to something else, and put the one you found into the same folder

Launch Espionage and the folders should be listed.

Now depending on changed paths, if you try to unlock a folder it might complain that the mountpoint folder is missing.
If this happens, create an empty folder using Finder with appropriate name and in appropriate location. Now click onto a small "i" near the folder name in the Espionage folder list and in the folder option window use the mountpoint drop down menu to point Espionage to the newly created folder.

Now with the mountpoint problem fixed, it might complain that the disk image is missing, at the same window in Espionage there will be another drop down menu named Disk image, note the current disk image name, then use the drop down menu to point Espionage to the same disk image but in the new location.

After this all should start to work

Let me know how it went,

Zsolt
