How do I transfer the program and my database(s) to a new computer?


First download Password Depot and install it on your new computer:

All previous versions can be found here:

To unlock the software on your new PC to the full version, you need your unlock code which was sent to you by email when purchasing your license. 

To transfer your existing password databases, copy them (e.g. using a USB stick) to the new computer. These files have the file name extension .pwse, .pswd, .psw or .psw7 etc. and are stored by default under "\Documents\Password Depot\".

If you have made individual settings in the program using the options and would like to transfer these as well instead of resetting them:

These are stored in the file pwdepot.cfg. You will find it under

C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\AceBIT\Password Depot <VERSION> (under Vista, 7, 8 and higher), resp.

C:\Documents and settings\Application data\AceBIT\Password Depot <VERSION>

 (under XP)

Please also copy the pwdepot.cfg file to the appropriate directory on your new computer.
