Another Backup Plugin (ABP) is a plugin for the KeePass password manager. 
ABP automatically copies the initially-opened password database to one or 
more backup files, so that the passwords can be recovered in case of loss.

Installation Instructions
-------------------------

1. Download and install ABP in the same way as you would any other KeePass plugin: 
   Unzip the ABP zip file into the folder containing KeePass.exe. 
2. Start KeePass with a command line argument specifying the initial database to open, 
   as well as a command line argument of the form /backup.path:BACKUP_PATH. 

See documentation for additional details.


Documentation
-------------

Comprehensive documentation is available in any of the following ways: 

1. Open the accompanying file "AnotherBackupPlugin.chm".
2. Point your browser to the ABP website at http://ABP-KeePass.sourceforge.net 
3. If you have installed ABP, from the KeePass main window select

Changes 
-------

1. ABP exploits the file transactions option introduced in KeePass 1.17.
   Old backup files can no longer be destroyed by half-written new backup 
   files.  Therefore, this version of ABP requires KeePass 1.17 or 
   later.
