    So..I accidentally deleted the sdcard of my phone with my kdb in it , the only copy (I know..Im dumb)
    I managed to restore nearly everything with photorec and I found the kdb file that is recognized
    by photorec itself.. but It seems it's not working.. when I try to open it It gives me wrong password
    when I'm sure it's the correct one.
    Any hint of what can I try to restore it? is the file gone for good and my password gone (please, no..)
    thank for the help

    If the database file is corrupt it won't open with any password. You can try to recover the data by using the Repair option.
    1. Open KeePass without a database.
    2. Select Tools > Repair Database File.
    3. Browse to your database, select it and then enter your password.

    Good luck.

    cheers, Paul

    p.s. back up your database, often. :)

    I know..Im an idiot. I'll try your suggestion and maybe a rescan of the raw image of the deleted disk with other recovering software to try to recover other copies of the file.
    Thank you very much for your fast response.
