Hello, I tested it, it seems to be working fine with folders which are on the local/startup volume.
If the folder is on an external volume like USB stick or disk, then there seems to be a problem with locking the folder, it reports constantly that it is in use even if all files are closed, and even if I quit Espionage.
You have to force eject the volume in the finder, this will lock the folder. It seems it is just a logical problem, no data should be damaged during this, but in spite of that, we will surely look into this.

Cheers
Zsolt

Hello again, I tested once again, this time with an external disk instead of (slow) USB stick and all works fine, no delays of any kind and it is possible to lock the folders.

Thanks for your input so far, if you encounter any problems, please let us know

Thanks

I'm not able to lock folders on my local disk - it claims it can't lock the folder because it's being used by some process. Force ejecting locks the folder, but definitely not a preferred method of locking things out.

I encountered this problem with a USB stick, but not with an External Hard Drive, although, there should be no difference. I will test it again and let you know if I figure something out.

I found that sometimes the Espionage icon disappears; I have to relaunch the App to use it. It looks like a silent crash...
macOS High Sierra 10.13 with Espionage 3.6.6

I know that this will be difficult to provide, but if you see that it crashed, can you quickly launch console application and check the allmessages and system log for espionage entries?

In fact, you can do that even now if it crashed recently, just enter in the console search field

espionage

see if it returns anything,

thanks
