    I have been a user of Password Safe has a Windows PC user for the best part of
    10 years. In this time I've amassed a large collection of entries in my
    Password Safe database.

    In the coming months, I'm moving from PC to Mac.

    When I get my iMac, I'm going to download the pwSafe app from the mac app

    I was wondering how and if I can move my Password Safe database from my
    Windows PC to my iMac, and what are the instructions for doing this and where
    would the files need to be placed on the iMac.

    Thanks in advance.

    The PasswordSafe database is kept in a file named pwsafe.psafe3 by default. On
    Windows7, this is under Documents/My Safes. You should copy the file to
    wherever the Mac app expects to find it. As I wasn't involved in the Mac
    version, I can't help you there. You should read the documentation for the Mac
    version, or consult the author.
