KeePass Version: 1.18
Using Windows VISTA
After I enter the password, I get the following: “Invalid/ corrupted file structure” Error code: 0x0000000D
I attempted the “Repair KeePass Database File” option with no success.
The only available backup is a year old and obviously lacking the newer data that was added or changed since then.
From what I read on this forum it seems this a lost cause (2 year old threads). Are there other options?
Would a data recovery service be worth a try or has anyone heard of one that has had success with this type of problem?
If you use Ultimate, Business or Enterprise editions of VISTA, but not (I believe) Home Premium, you may be able to recover a previous version of your database.
If you store the database on a cloud service you may also be able to recover a previous versions. Check their help or contact their support.
Otherwise, if you have verified that you are opening the correct file, there is little to be done. A recovery service will not be able decrypt a damaged database, but if it could restore the encrypted file to its intact state (down to the last bit) KeePass could decrypt it. There is a DIY product that claims to be able to recover data from failing or failed hard drives, but I don't have any experience with it. See https://www.grc.com/intro.htm. There may be other products as well.
Your previous thread.
My version of VISTA apparently does not have that feature (previous version). I'll look into the grc product.
Thank-you for your response.
