    Hello. I think I have a big problem, but maybe someone can help me out. I just upgraded from Vista to Windows 8. I knew I would lose all programs, so I made a backup from Keepass on my external hard drive with the help of synchronize software. But what did I backup? When I open the backup folder, there are a lot of files, but none seems to contain my passwords. I can open Keepass from my external drive, but then the environment is totally empty. In short: am I lost, or is the info still there, but do I need to perform some kind of trick? Thank you very much in advance.

    You need to locate the KeePass password file. The default extension is .kdbx for KeePass 2.x, or .kdb for KeePass 1.x. This file will be located wherever you stored it (typically somewhere in My Documents). Once you have located that file, you can open it within KeePass. If the .kdb(x) file is not in your backup and you still have the original Vista disk, search the entire disk.

      Thank you so much!
      Typing .kdbx was enough to solve the riddle.
      Just what I hoped for.
