Downgrade the DB

  • Henrik Johansson

    Hi. We use 2.07 version of KeePass but someone has installed the 2.26 version and upgraded the database. Is it possible to downgrade to 2.07 again?

    There is no formal downgrade path. However there are a few possibilities.

    1. Restore a recent backup of the .kdbx file that predates the upgrade. If you don't have backups, and you are using Windows Vista (Vista required a business edition or better) or later it may be possible to recover a previous version.

    2. Export the 2.26 database (File>Export...) as a 'KeePass XML (2.X)' file and import the XML file into an empty 2.07 Beta database. There may be some conversion losses but it appears that fields, custom fields, and attachments migrate successfully.

    3. Or upgrade KeePass 2.07Beta to KeePass 2.26.
