My hard-drive crashed. I restored AM2, but cannot find the password files. What type of file would I be looking for?

Hi vince0243,

amrena is correct you need to find your password database file which is called AccessManager.xdb.

It should have been located in one of the following locations.

  • C:\Users\’MyUserName’\AppData\Local\Citi-Software\Access Manager 2\
  • C:\Program Files\Citi-Software\Access Manager 2\
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Citi-Software\Access Manager 2\
  • C:\Users\’MyUserName’\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Citi-Software\Access Manager 2\

The file will need to be placed int eh same location on your new PC or new harddrive.

Let us know how you get on.

Thanks

I have had concerns that my backup is not really a full and valid backup. Why do I say that? Because the file size and file date of the two files that create the backup are always the same. (AccessManager.xdb 90,112 01/22/2019,  AccessManager.dbt 90,112 12/19/2012) So for grins I added a "test me" username/password. I removed the backup from the my backup folder, did the backup (10/10/2019), witnessed the two backup files being created with the old dates and size.    I copied these two files to a USB drive. Went to my laptop and replaced all AccessManager.xdb and AccessManager.dbt files I could find. I could not find any menu that allows you to restore a backup so I just replaced and opened up the database. There was not a "test me" username.   So what's up with that? I love this program. I have had my challenges but have found work arounds. But if I'm not creating a valid backup then I guess it's time to move on.   Suggestions? Recommendations?
