Unable to recover KDBX file

Hi,

last week I deleted my kdbx file unfortunately.

Unfortunately Photorec is not able to find any kdbx file.

Any idea how to proceed?
Windows 10

Thanks,

You will have to build a fingerprint:

viewtopic.php?p=32663#p32663

You find information on the net about kdbx files.

But kdb and kdbx files are already recognized from Photorec, when I chose file options.

So it's no use?

I did not bother checking Photorec for you, I understood your phrase as if there is no support.
Communication is difficult!

Anyway, Photorec supports kdbx files in their latest version.


The following is not a primary source but contains some information about their file headers:

Your left with the option to
1. build a custom fingerprint file.
2. Patch the Photorec executable accordingly
3. recompile Photorec with a modified fingerprint, replacing 0x67 with 0x66 or 0x65
