Google Drive sync problem in KyPass 3

KyPass couldn’t sync anymore kdb(x) file with Google Drive…

Google have change the way you could search file in Google Drive:

I used the query string ‘(title contains ‘kdb’) or (title contains ‘kdbx’)‘ to search keepass database on your drive. This query doesn’t return file with kdb or kdbx extension in title anymore.

The way to find these file is now ‘(fileExtension = ‘kdb’) or (fileExtension = ‘kdbx’)‘ that seems logical but that didn’t work before.


I’ll submit a bug fix version to Apple this weekend.


Until the new version, the workaround is to add (kdb) or (kdbx) in the title of your database on Google Drive 🙂

  1. Is this to be fixed in version 3.4 you are working on? I am finding that Kypass is no longer syncing with the passwords I stored on Googledrive. Just trying to figure out it it’s worth me isolating the problem and whether I need to get some other password manager system. Setting this up was not super easy, so wanting to know if need to start all over again. About when should we expect for this to be addressed?


      1. Thanks for quick reply! Yes. Have 3.3. I will do some investigation and get back to you. That tells me I need to isolate the problem.
