No

I keep my database in the cloud so I can have it with me on the phone, at home, at work etc. One thing I notice is when I change or create an entry say at work and then arrive home, KeePass will crash, presumably because the database file doesn't match the last one I opened at home anymore.

Would it be possible to have KeePass when unlocking a file ditch all old information and reread the entire thing from disk to bypass this?

This happens everytime I so should be easily reproducable (I'm using v2)

    That is what locking, then unlocking a KeePass database does. See http://keepass.info/help/base/security.html#seclocking

    KeePass will crash, presumably because the database file doesn't match the last one I opened at home anymore.

    KeePass should not crash when a replicated database (e.g replication via dropbox) is opened from a new location. I suggest that you post a complete description of your configuration and the problem symptoms in the Help forum.

    I haven't really changed many options except:

    • Lock workspace when locking the computer or switching the user
    • Lock workspace when the computer is about to be suspended
    • Lock workspace when the remote control mode changes

    Still after edits from work/home KeePass have never once not crashed (I'm at around 20-30 crashes now) at the other location when I try to unlock it. But I'll try the Help forum and see if anyone has any ideas.

    I cannot reproduce this issue. Unlocking a file basically is the same as opening a file; there is no old information in memory.

    Best regards,
