Lost the key file

    Please, I need urgent help.

    I was storing all my passwords for various websites (ftp login, wp login, mysql, etc), and today suddenly I couldn't open my Keepass DB.

    What I found is that I actually miss pwsafe.key file from my computer - I don't know, maybe the AV or maintenance sw deleted it.

    Is there any option to salvage something from db? I do have db file and I know the password, just missing the .key file.

    Thanks in advance.

      If it was deleted somehow, you may be able to recover it. I suggest a recovery tool such as Recuva: http://www.piriform.com/recuva

    Well, I already tried with few recovery tools, without success.

    @ Paul, no, that can't work with me, I didn't set that option earlier, so I don't have any previous version.

    Do you have a backup of the PC? The key file should be on the backup.

    cheers, Paul
