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.
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.
