    "Failed to load the specific file. The file is corrupted."

    What did I do? When I ended KeePass to install the new version 2.25, I did not press save before I closed the program, just exit. However, I have switched on "Automatically save when closing/locking the database", so it shouldn't be a problem. Seemingly it was.

    Please help me to recover the passwords from the "corrupt" file.

    !!

    Thanks!
    Great program!

    You are possibly attempting to open a non KeePass database.
    Check the file is your database.
    Recover the file from backup and test.
    Recover using Windows "Previous Versions" and test.

    cheers, Paul

    Hey Paul, thanks for your quick answer!

    Windows ... "Previous Versions"

    it says "There are no previous versions available."

    It's inside a TrueCrypt container which doesn't get restore point backupped.

    attempting to open a non KeePass database

    No, it is a keepass database, for sure. I have just binary-compared it with a 1 month old backup of the same file, and the first approx. 40 bytes are identical.

    .
    .

    Please don't tell me that all passwords of the past month are lost now?

    Is there any way to persuade KeePass to read what it can, and discard the rest?

    Can you open the month old backup? If so you should be able to open / recover the new file.
    To use the recovery option select File > Import and choose the V2 repair mode.

    cheers, Paul
