Change default Enpass folder location

Hi, I would like to ask for help with the following issue - is it possible to change the location of the Enpass folder (created by default)? If so, how? 

Here is my situation:

1. On my Mac (iOS 10.14.6) Enpass created a default backup folder in Documents (ie. Documents/Enpass)

2. As i generally store all my app backups together in a different folder, I wanted to move the Enpass data there, too. So I tried:

a) Simply moving the whole Enpass folder to that Backup folder (ie. Documents/App_backups/Enpass). This caused Enpass to not recognise my master password (even though it was 100 percent correct)). 

So I moved it back, logged into Enpass and tried the following:

b) In Settings I changed the location of Automatic backups to Documents/App_backups. I manually triggered creation of a backup file in that location. The automatic backups work now (there is now "Backups" folder in the location), BUT  if I delete (or just rename) the original Enapss backup folder, again the master password stops working. 

There are some files in the original Enpass folder (Vaults, walletx.db.backup) which were not moved when I changed backup location, so it seems this could cause the problem. How do I point Enpass to use the new location for these files as well? 

Thanks in advance, 

Andrea

Hey @Aneth29

Welcome to the forum!

The option to change database location is only available for app downloaded from Enpass website. If you have downloaded Enpass from app store, it won’t be possible to change the database location. To change the database location in website version, please follow these steps:

  • Open Enpass → Under Settings, go to Advanced → Click on Change Location to change the data location.

To help you better, let us know the exact Enpass version you using. or share from where have you installed the Enpass app(Enpass website or Store)?

When I do this - I get the message that "could not choose network or this path doesnt exist"... 

But it do exist. Why is this?  could it be due to that the folder include a non english letter?

Hi @toad

I appreciate your response. I would like to share that we have tested it and found no errors while changing the data location. Please try these steps and let me know if now you can change the backup data location:

  • Open Enpass -> Under settings, go to "Backup" -> Change location.
