    the following curious quote appears:

    "KeePass doesn't store anything on your system."

    Where is the data then stored?

    The subsequent expansion of the point is clear enough. KeePass does not: "... create any new registry keys and it doesn't create any initialization files (INI) in your Windows directory. Deleting the KeePass directory (in case you downloaded the binary ZIP package) or using the uninstaller (in case you downloaded the installer package) leaves no trace of KeePass on your system."

    Where is the data then stored?

    A KeePass password database is a single file (default extensions are .kdb or .kdbx for KeePass 1.x and 2.x respectively) stored in a location of the user's choice. It is generally recommended that it be stored in a location with other user documents such as a folder in the user's "My Documents" directory.
