  • WEll I did backup my database, but unfortunately windows 2000 in it ultimate performance ruined my database. How do I know. WEll I backup my data file to a SD card, like i always do. Reinstalled the Keypass onto my new computer and it gives me an error "file cannot be opened" dialog box. From what I have read it may be corrupt. Is there anyway to look at that file without keypass?

      Do you have another copy of the file? This is the easiest way to test for corruption.

    • I've had the same problem.  I've been storing my database on a CD-RW for a couple months now and backed it up to thumbdrive periodically.  Now all of a sudden the CD-RW version is corrupted ("File cannot be opened!") while the last backup works fine.  I was initially inclined to believe the fault was in Win2k or the media.  I certainly hope there isn't some odd failure mode where keepass can corrupt its own file.

      Can you compare the corrupt file and the backup and tell us the difference. It may even be worth sending both files to Dominik - he may be able to see if the problem is caused by Keepass.
