#85 saving stored passwords through Password manager

I am using the password manager to store my passwords with great pleasure.

Today, however, I lost all information, because I used Netscape 6.2 and Mozilla 0.9.7 at the same time (the two managers probably distroyed my datafile).

Now I am wondering if it might be possible to archive the datafile somewhere and restore it lateron.

Now this file was corrupted I experimented a little bit, for example, copy the datafile into a new one, exit Mozilla, rename the copied file into the original name, and start M again. The password manager did not see this file anymore, and the data was lost.

Backing up your system will not work in this way, I presume, for the password manager will notice that the datafile has been restored and start all over again.

Has someone a solution for archiving the datafile and restoring it lateron, or is this contradicting with security?
