    I am using KeePass 1.15 on an old laptop. I have a new laptop which I would like to install the new version (2.24) on, but I want to be able to use all my data from the old computer. How can I do this, please? I have searched the KeePass site and can't find any instructions (that I can understand) explaining how to do it. Thanks in advance.

    You can import a V1 database into V2.
    1. Create a new database in KeePass V2, remove any default entries, empty the recycle bin if required and save it.
    2. Select File > Import and choose "KeePass KDB".
    3. Select the V1 database and enter the V1 database master key.
    4. When the import is complete save the V2 database.

    cheers, Paul
