    "Password Safe ID"? Perhaps you're confusing this site with passwordsafe.com?
    In any case, for the PasswordSafe desktop application, there's no backdoor / recovery procedure, as any such mechanism would be a fatal flaw to the security of your data.

    Rony, thanks for the reply. I can understand the need for security, but I believe that there should be some way to reset to discover the ID and reset the password. I am sure that I am not the first person to have lost/forgotten my ID and/or password and now I am faced with the prospect of not being able to access/change/add to my passwords. This means years of work that is now lost. Other programs have ways of recovering lost/forgotten password by submitting an e-mail address and then receiving a confirming message and a link by which to reset the password.
