Postby kiteboarder » Mon Aug 29, 2011 5:30 pm

Hi, could someone please tell me how to go about doing a clean install of SP.

I would like to do this and not loose all of my valuable password data that SP has been AWESOME about keeping ready at my fingertips.

The password database and backups by default is stored in a sub folder Sticky Passwords in your My Documents folder if you save that folder you could do a clean uninstall and install without worry of losing your passwords. After you do the clean install just copy the saved file to the location mentioned above before starting sticky password then the program will use your pre-existing database.

...or you could click on "manage database" and then first export the database and after the new installation import the database.....very easy

Thanks to Blurayfan and UPieper for their comments.

Just a note: your database file in the folder Documents/Sticky Passwords is called default.pws. You can backup just this file or the whole folder (with all the backups) before reinstalling Sticky Password to be sure that your data are secure.

Best regards,
