Hi Beta testers,
7Pass 3.4 Beta installation link has been sent to all subscribers of the Beta Program.
This beta features SkyDrive support with full synchronization capability.
This version, and probably next 7Pass release, will have some small issue:
- Case: you made changes to your local database and synchronize it. Your database on SkyDrive doesn’t have not changed since last synchronization,
- What will happen: your local database will be uploaded to your SkyDrive.
- Restriction: SkyDrive limits file type of the uploaded file to certain support extensions only, which naturally doesn’t include kdbx.
- Work-around: your database will first be uploaded with the extension of .doc, then renamed to the correct .kdbx extension.
- Issue: You may sometime see a file with .doc extension (ex: Passwords.kdbx.doc) in case the synchronization fail. You can certainly delete it or it will be deleted next time your database is synchronized.
You can also download the Beta .xap file from:
Update 24th December:
I was able to confirm that databases from SkyDrive cannot support .kdbx extension. SkyDrive not only not allow uploading of kdbx files, but all also disallow renaming of files to kdbx, which is the workaround I used. They even didn’t politely says that it’s restricted, just a simple rename success message with…. the old name. So, the “workaround” is to use .doc as the extension for your database, meaning you’ll have to use something like Passwords.doc instead of Passwords.kdbx. I know this is a huge blow to SkyDrive support, but it’s beyond my control.
Happy holiday and Merry Christmas to you all. Let’s hope that it’ll be better next year.
