    I know this is going to sound extremely weak however I cant install the plugin - and I've tried for like 2 hours.

    Just a quick summary. 
    Within
    C:\Program Files\KeePass
    is KeePass.exe and your AnotherBackupPlugin.dll 

    However when starting the KeePass executable from the command line
    and going into the Plugins window (Tools->Plugins) - There is nothing listed.  Im using 1.16 KP version and ABP 1.9-1.14

    Thanks
    Yes and I know a really weak question but its really bugging me

    I'm not sure why I was notified of your post other tha i had a similar problem and Bill Rubin helped me.  His web site is:  http://abp-keepass.sourceforge.net/.
    1.11.0.0 is the most recent version of ABP so I would start there.  My properties looks like this:
    "C:\Program Files\KeePass Password Safe\KeePass.exe" "C:\Documents and Settings\slospjam\My Documents\Personal-docs\Database.kdb" /backup.path:"P:\Backups\".
    P is my mapped network drive but could be a USB stick or whatever you want.
    Hope that helps,
    Peter

    Thanks that upgrade to the new version was the trick  Thanks!!

    Can you use ssh or a script file that utilizes that would act as the backup location?  I see the program is capable of using putty!

    Sorry, don't know the answer to that, I had enough trouble just getting it to backup.  You might try asking Bill Rubin.  he was very helpful to me, several e-mails until i got it right.

    Sorry, kevdogger, I really don't understand your question.  Is this really a question about ABP, or about KeePass?  If about ABP, can you rephrase?

    I just meant if you wanted to do something more with ABP, Bill Rubin is the author and could help more than anyone else.

    My question is regarding the backup location.  As it stands right now it seems the backup location is a local file.  I was wondering however if the backup location could be a file in a remote location as accessed by the use of ssh.   This would probably be overly complex - and now that I think about it further - although it would seem theoretically possible it would be a pain to implement crossplatform.  Thanks for your opinions however.

    I may enhance ABP at some point to provide the ability to back up through FTP and/or Amazon S3, etc.  But currently only ordinary files are supported.  The backup file can be on a R/W network drive.
