    Hi I have used 'password safe' for many years ever since counterpane but now
    have a little snag. I have two password databases one of which is mine and
    another for the wife. I update from time to time and currently am using 3.29
    and my personal password safe is in xxx.psafe3 format and works fine. But ny
    wifes password safe is still in the older xxx.dat format. I can't remember
    quite how is came about now but I got converted while the wife did not (yet!).

    Can someone advise how to convert from xxx.dat to xxx.psafe3?? Did it happen
    at some particular version?? Or what happened???

    Should be straightforward: Just open the .dat file with 3.29. When you Save
    it, it will be saved as a .psafe3 file.

    Thanks Rony

    However while it is true that I can open/close/change the xxx.dat password
    file with 3.29 it does not get converted and hence is still in xxx.dat format

    Cheers, Roger

    Hi Rony

    Decided to just try manually renaming the xxx.dat file as a xxx.psafe3 and
    that seems to work fine.

    So cheers, all done now
