Hi,

My computer is crashing every 10 or 15 minutes and sometimes I can't open windows at all. I've been trying to save all my important folders, but I've been using an iomega zip drive because my cd drive doesn't work. I've saved most of what I want but I can't find the folder that saves my passwords with Norton Password Manager 2004. I have 58 passwords saved and I don't want to lose them. So, does anyone know which folder they are in?

Thanks and be well,
BarrieG

can't you export your passwords?? i am not sure how norton stores the passwords but the safest way is to export them using the program itself.

Hi Samiko,

Samiko Writes: can't you export your passwords?? i am not sure how norton stores the passwords but the safest way is to export them using the program itself.

Barrie Responds: I don't think you can export them with Norton. I assume that "export" means to have them copied to another folder. If not, what does "export" mean? In any case, I've been looking at the Password Manager, and there's no way I can find to do anything with the passwords except to remove them. Thanks for you time, tho.

right I am back again I think with the answer this time, I have found this in the manual for the norton password manager 2004.

Back up or restore your profile information

Norton Password Manager maintains your private profile
data in a database. You can back up the profile by
exporting the data to an external, encrypted file. You can
also use this export/import feature to migrate your
profile information to a different profile, or to another
licensed installation of Norton Password Manager.

To back up the profile database

1 In the Norton Password Manager main window, click
Status & Settings > Current Profile.
2 In the lower right of the window, click Modify.
3 On the left side of the Norton Password Manager
Options dialog box, ensure that Profile Name is
selected.
4 In the Profile Name dialog box, click Backup Data.
5 Type a file name, select the location for the backed-up
file, then click Save.
6 Type a password that will be required to restore the
backup.
7 Click OK.

w If you do not want to overwrite the data in the current
profile, you can add a new, empty profile, sign into it, and
import the backup file to fill in the new profile data.


To restore the profile database

1 In the Norton Password Manager main window, click
Status & Settings > Current Profile.
2 In the lower right of the window, click Modify.
3 On the left side of the Norton Password Manager
Options dialog box, ensure that Profile Name is
selected.
4 In the Profile Name dialog box, click Restore Data.
5 Click Yes to the warning that all data in the profile
will be replaced.
6 Locate the backed-up file.
7 Click Open.
8 Type the password that was assigned to the backup,
then click OK.

I knew there has to be a way of exporting/importing passwords through.

hope that helps.

Hi Again,

I have done what you suggested via the guidelines. And I do now have my passwords stored on a disc offline--just in case. Great Geek Work!!!!

Be well & happy,
