    I need a safe place to keep information other than just password. Will KEEPASS work for this? If so, how? If not, any suggestions?

    keepass is a program that encrypts/decrypts a database file.
    The database file is comprised of records,
    the records have fields one of these fields is a free form "notes" field.
    In this "notes" field you can perform whatever data entry you like.

    between the "Notes" field and the ability to define your own custom fields/strings you should be able to store whatever other non-password information you might have. its common for people to want to record other things such as credit card numbers, emergency phone numbers, software install serial numbers, instructions, whatever...

    You can also store files as attachments, but this is best reserved for small files that must be stored securely, otherwise your database becomes very large. Attachments can be viewed securely using the built-in viewer - no data is saved to disk when viewing the attachment.

    cheers, Paul
