PSWD7 Thumdrive installation

Post by michiganmarty » March 25th, 2013, 12:42 am

Okay, I used the thumbdrive installer in the program and while it is now on the thumbdrive, the password file was not. I went ahead and copied it to the thumbdrive and it works now, but how does one go about synchronizing the thumbdrive with the hard drive files? With now documentation it makes it impossible to figure out.

Hi michiganmarty,

Synchronization works between two files. Therefore, please follow these steps:
1.) Run Password Depot,
2.) open one of the files,
3.) click on “Tools” -> “Synchronize,”
5.) select the second file to synchronize.

If it was that easy I would not have posted here. I tried that, and it comes up with a list of file entries that are not the same as the file on the hard drive, but does not do a thing when I click on the "synchronize" button. If I manually copy the password file from the hard drive to the thumb drive, then the items I had changed on the thumb drive never gets updated to the hard drive file. So far the synchronize feature is unusable.

Hello MichiganMarty,

do you encounter this problem only when trying to synchronize a file saved on a thumbdrive with a file saved on your hard drive? Or does this problem also occur when you try to synchronize two files that are both saved on your hard drive?

Furthermore, please check what action is selected in the "Action" column, next to each entry in the synchronization window. If you double-click on the action, a drop-down menu should open, and you will be able to choose the desired action (skip, copy, add, delete). If "skip" is selected, no changes will be made for that entry.

You have to register the program on your thumb drive as well
(I never keep Password Depot on my computer after version 4 Acebit have made using it from a USB difficult)
Click the tab (after using the "instal on USB" and starting program)
"File" then select "additional"
You will need your "activation key" or get it re-emailed to you
And your "Unlock Key" you got this on purchase.
Just copy your existing " *.PSW7 " to your thumb drive for easy to find reasons
