In the midst of changing my password, I had to leaver the computer and my grandson decided to play on the keyboard. Anyway I have Win10 and tried to follow your instructions on finding the password, but could not find the referenced files/folders. Any other way to find it? Could I uninstall and buy a new copy, or would my data be lost? I just moved and am in a panic to get to my data.
Thanks!

Man, there IS a solution if I don't remember the new password? Now I know I should have asked! Last year I changed my master password to some string that I could not remember later. Assuming there was no way out, I spent 15 days answering verification questions at various sites and changing passwords! My bad!

Assuming you are using the latest version 2016/2017 of Password Agent. When you run Password Agent you will likely prompted for master password? Now open File menu and choose command Properties. It displays properties for your data file. There you see your data file name (ending with .pwa) and also Location where file is saved.
