This is diverging slightly off the original topic, but I felt compelled
to respond. Depending upon your security concerns, a variety of tools
will allow you to sync and backup password databases to a variety of
systems (windows, linux, mac, android, etc.). Here are just a few:
Secure Password Tools:
1. Keepass. I can't live without it. Store windows registration codes,
software registration codes (Adobe, etc), passwords, anything you can
think of. Linux (KeepassX, Keepass 2.0), Windows (Keepass 1.0, Keepass
2.0), Android and iPhone/iPad software available. Generate crazy long
passwords if you must.
2. TrueCrypt. Set up a truecrypt container (file folder) and put your
file passwords in a plain text document. Put the truecrypt container on
a USB key and carry it around with you. Inefficient, but doable.
3. Lastpass. See below.
1. Dropbox. I use Dropbox to maintain specific Keepass databases synced
on all computers, tablets, phones. You can argue the security concerns,
but the convenience outweighs them. Use your database wisely, set up
multiple authentication rules, and use it for non-critical password
items if you must. You can use multiple databases as you wish...for
example, non-critical passwords in a specific Keypass database synced on
Dropbox called 'LibreOffice Files'.
2. Lastpass. Very convenient, and I just started using it. Its strength
mostly lies in web passwords, but you can add anything you want, to
include LO document passwords, readily accessible online. I DO NOT use
it for critical, personal information.
3. BitTorrent Sync. Personally, my new fave. It allows syncing of any
folder across your network. No communication outside your LAN, unless
you specifically set it up. Use Keypass, Truecrypt, whatever. More of
a syncing tool, but you can set up rules to act like a backup system to
a specific computer/drive. Much easier to use than any Windows/Linux
backup solution tbh.
Old school paper files are effective, until your house burns down...so
the argument works both ways. Personally, given the proliferation of
tools/devices we use, I need password capability across all devices.
All of my passwords are Keepass generated (25+ characters and symbols)
and writing them all down is simply not an option. Plus I set reminders
to change passwords every month or so, within Keypass.
Give them a try, I think you'll find the tools listed above are useful
and productive...just take extra care protecting where and how you store
these files, that's all.
