I've come a cropper with passwordsafe and wonder if you could advise:
I use it to store a variety of passwords. Android app on the phone (used read-only) and the app77 version on a Macbook Pro retina (rear-write). I appreciate that this sourceforge is for neither of these versions but as the original application I hope that the databse is best understood here.
It worked well when previously used with windows. I transferred the database to the mac and have used the app77 version to work with it since. Upon trying to log in to the database I receive a "wrong password" error. I haven't changed the master password. Copying the database (59 kB) from mac to the android handset I receive the same "wrong password" error.
An older (September, 39 kB) version from the phone opens just fine. I looked for a .ibak, renamed it .psafe3, and it opens fine but unfortunately they're from May this year, back when I was still using windows. It would appear that the app77 has either written backups to a location I'm unaware of, or hasn't written them at all. Stupidly I hadn't checked this until bitten by it now.
I've added a lot of details (notes) rather than passwords to the database since the previous working copy. (passwords easy to recover via letter/email etc, the notes less so!) Is there any way to recover a garbled database, or perhaps extract what's there even if the various checksums are garbled? I know the master password used to encrypt it.
FWIW the machine was upgraded to Mac OS X v10.9 very recently, though I can't say for certain whether the failure occurred at the same time or not.
Thanks for any assistance!
