Properties - General

On the General tab of the file properties, you can view some basic information about your database and make some changes, if applicable.

At the top, you are shown the File name of your database. This cannot be changed in this dialog.

Below is shown following information:

  • Location: Indicates the storage location of your database. The location cannot be changed in this dialog. To change the name of your database or the file path, you can either use the Database > Save as command in the main menu or make those changes in the Windows Explorer.
  • Size: Shows the size of your passwords file in kilobytes and bytes.
  • Last modified: Informs about the date of the file's last modification.
  • Authentication: Shows the currently used authentication method for this database and also allows for its change via Change.... Furthermore, it is possible to reduce database size through compression (tick box "Use compression to reduce the Database size").

In the middle of the window, there is further information about your database, called Content. Most of this data is only for your information and can thus not be modified in this context:

  • Contains: Indicates the number of groups and passwords contained in your databases, as well as the number of passwords that have already expired.
  • Custom icons: Shows the number of custom icons your passwords file is using.
  • Attachments: Shows the number of attachments contained in your passwords file.
  • Delete icons/attachments: With these buttons, you can delete the icons and/or attachments contained in your database. This will decrease your database size and thereby may speed up loading of databases. If changes have been made, you can apply them with Update icons.
  • Ignored Websites: Opens a window, listing the websites that are ignored by the browser add-ons (Edit websites) and thus not automatically filled in.

NOTE: Keep your databases always up-to-date and avoid unnecessary data ballast. If your database takes a lot of time to load, you may need to consider reviewing your attachments and custom icons, as they increase the size of your database. You can either use the Clean-up function on the Tools tab to find entries and attachments which are no longer used, or you can delete your custom icons and attachments via the General tab here if your file is getting to big.
