Howto get back a file I lost in my locked folder

Hi

How to get back a file I lost in my locked folder?

I tried with Time Machine, but I can't go back in time.

Hello Eric, I'm not sure if this post is related to the other one.
With Espionage 3, the time machine has no problems saving the disk images, no matter the folders are locked or unlocked.
So all you need is restore the disk image from Library/Application Support/com.taoeffect.espionage3/Data folder.
But you also need the disk image password, as I explained in the other post.

Let me know which part is problematic.

Hi

Yes, the 2 post are related, I need to get back a file that was lost the 19 october, I have the disk image in my backup.

So, how to get to open the disk image (from the 19 october), and not touching the actual disk image.

I have a password that look like this: l)'"b[<@sV>D$$`fGlB7y*dhQJJjM
But I can't paste it in the password input window.

Thank you

Éric

Hello Eric, yes, you cannot paste, unfortunately,
but you can use command line to accomplish the job

launch terminal
write

cd

and then drag the folder in which the disk image resides over the terminal window, and let it go, this should past the path to it.
hit enter, this should change the working directory to the one in which the disk images resides.
to verify you can run

ls -al

if you see the disk image listed, then you are on a good way.

now write

hdiutil attach ./diskimagename

replace the diskimage name with the actual name of the disk image. Note that there is no space between ./ and the diskimage name.
hit enter
it will ask you for password
now paste it and hit enter

if all ok, the disk image should mount and you can access the data from it.

Let me know if it did not work.
