When the trial period of 30 days for Password Depot has expired and the program switches to Freeware mode, the user is prompted to select a password file for further use (in Freeware mode only one file is supported). That dialog box with the prompt is shown only once and if you missed that opportunity to select a default password file you have to select the default file manually.

The default password file in Freeware mode has to fulfill the following conditions:

  1. It must be named Password Depot.pswd
  2. It must be located in the following directory \Documents\Password Depot\"

In order to select your default password file manually, please follow these steps:

  1. Close Password Depot if it is running.
  2. Navigate to a .pswd file in Windows Explorer.
  3. Rename the file to Password Depot.pswd
  4. Copy the file to the following directory:
    "Documents\Password Depot\"
  5. Start Password Depot.
