View Full Version : Disc Image encryption problem

15th February 2009, 10:48 AM
I want to create an encrypted dmg from a folder of photographic images. I'm sure I'm doing everything right. I can create the disc image but when I open it it doesn't ask me for the password I put in and opens straight up.

I've tried going direct to the folder and making the dmg from there and also making a new dmg. Neither seems to work. I'm sure I've selected all the right bits i.e. encryption type and password etc.

Why doesn't the dmg ask me for the password when I open it? Instead it opens right up without asking.

Pathway Disc utility>File>New>DI from folder>Select>Image format compressed>Encrption 128 bit>save

Because you ticked "Remember this password in keychain". Try again and when prompted to enter the desired password make sure this box isn't ticked.
