How to backup the ID Protection password database ?
I am actually testing the ID Total. With my old password App Keepass2 there is a file that i can backup for desaster recovery. With ID Protection there is no information, where the passwords are saved. So if the passwords are not synchronized, the passwords are lost ?? Is there only the possibility to export the passwords for desaster and import them after the rebuild of the system ?

Thank you for your reply.
Where is the vault stored
is it reasonable to copy it to a backup device for desaster recovery ?
Yes, you may export the password or sync the password to another device to back up the vault also.
By default, your password data is saved in the ExportedPasswords.fsk file (F-Secure ID PROTECTION interchange file) in the specified location.
Note: When you export your Vault data, this file is exported as plain text and can, therefore, be read easily by others. If you need to store this file, store it where it cannot be easily accessed or damaged. Also, remember to delete the file once you have transferred the data Exporting Vault data from the app | ID PROTECTION | Latest | F-Secure User Guides

Thank you for your comments, Amirul.
I found the infos you quoted before. I have no answer to the question:

I am doing regular backups of my data drive and it would be easy to add the vault to it.
