Using PasswordSafe version installed in 2010. Not sure what caused it but last time trying to open the database got the 'corrupted or truncated' message. Same thing when I try the ~ backup file. I installed the new v3.31 and I get the message but it lets me open the file anyway. Missing over half of the data. Any way I can repair either the db or backup file?

    Not unless you're a developer, and even then, most likely not. If both files are bad, and you're running an old version of PasswordSafe, I'd guess you're also using an old machine. If this is true, then the problem may be that the disk drive is beginning to die.

    In any case, making copies of the data you managed to recover would be a good idea.
