Export your records in XML or CSV file and import them later.
- Export all safes (backup): select Export in the Account drop-down.
- Export a single safe: click Export item in the safe menu.
In the provided dialog, choose one of the two file formats - XML or CSV. For backup/restore purposes, XML is highly recommended. Use CSV only for compatibility reasons or to get the exported data in a human-readable form e.g. to put them into an Excel table. CSV is error-prone, does not preserve real data structures, and suffers compatibility issues.
There are many KeePass flavors, particularly:
- KeePass 2 - for Windows
- Keepass2Android - for Android devices
- KeepassXC - cross-platform application for MAC, Linux, and Windows
Windows and Android versions support the XML format as a primary choice. CSV implementation contains errors and is not recommended. Cross-platform KeePassXC supports CSV only, and this implementation is correct.
SUMMARY: use CSV for KeePassXC and XML for KeePass2/Windows and KeePass2Andoird
Select Import in the Account drop-down
Select mode: Import (puts file data into a newly created single safe) or Restore (merges file data with existing safes) Select the file you wish to upload
NOTE: Restore mode preserves all the data you have in PassHub, it can only add new records or additional versions of existing records. It never deletes or modifies the existing data.
