I created an encrypted disk image and saved my files in it. Once created, the pw was working fine when checked, but today the password wont work, it was saved in keychain too so no way it can be wrong, but I renamed and moved the file a couple of times to other folders, is that the problem?

    They can be renamed in Finder and changing the location of it should not matter either except if you moved it to a folder with different access permissions that prevent it from being read.

     

    Anyway recreate a new encrypted disk image and choose a name you are happy with, move your files into it, and keep it in a location where permissions belong to you and that will be the the most direct solution.
