Backup files of different size

Backup files of different size

Hello,

I just noticed: The backup taken from the mobile app is not identical in size with the backup taken from the desktop app after full round of syncs via Dropbox. How is this possible?

Thanks.

Hey @hfpop

There's nothing to worry about, the file size may differ by a few KBs when the backup is created on different devices, even if they have the same content.

Ciao.

Thank you, @Akash Vyas, for your reply.

Another question of the same kind, please: My initial set of passwords was a CSV import. The backup had the size of 1.0 MB. I noticed an error, with & chars and deleted everything, corrected the CSV file and reimported it. A new backup, this time size 1.6 MB. 

Is there a way to purge previous paswords?

Thank you.

Hey @Horia Pop

When you delete/modify the data then they are not completely deleted, some of the data will still remain as metadata and there's no way to clear it. However, if you don't want to have the metadata taking up your space, you'll have to start like as a new user. For this, please take a backup of your current data (just as a safety measure) and clear the Enpass data from your devices locally and your cloud account as well. Then create a new database and import the CSV file.

Cheers!
