how to unencrypt passwords (Iron)

Hello, I'm using Iron, Portable passwords works great.
But I have a few questions:

1) how to transfer log-ins, passes, settings, bookmarks, extensions (with their settings) from one Iron portable app folder to another Iron portable app\Install version?
by the way, this is necessary if something happen with Iron, for example a fatal crash, crash File System of the usb-stick, or anything else.

in other words - which files\folders I have to copy from the Iron app directory?

2) how to change master password?

3) how to clear (disable) master password?

3) how to disable encryption without loss of passwords?
I'll explain: if change parameter
EncryptPortablePasswords= to "false" (it was =true),
then each following entry on any account, which is stored in the browser, leads to the fact that passwords remain in the "encrypted" (mojibake, abracadabra) form forever.

in other words - how to undo encrypt passwords in Iron, do this by means of the program itself (Iron)?

-

Sorry for my English, if something unclear, ask me here, please.

p.s. anyone(!), please make this feature, it will be very pleasure for users.

Don't Think You Can

I don't think you can do any of those things. The password is set once for the password file and there is no code to change it (or un-set it) without losing all your passwords. And I don't think Iron provides any mechanism to transfer passwords from one install to another.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

alright, but how it updates?

ensuing discussion to 1) but as it then updated?
I know that user may to update the app with paf-installer, does someone knows how to do it manually? (what files and folder required to copy?)

this is the same thing, as the transfer personal info from one copy to another copy (it's meaning between Irons portableapp, may be even between simple installed native Iron and portable apps version Iron).

other issues remain in force.

Data

You can move your whole Data directory between Iron Portable installs. You can't move your passwords to Iron's native portable version as it doesn't save passwords in a way that can move between PCs or encrypt them. That's functionality we added.

Decrypter tool

What do you think of creating a tool to allow decryption/password changing? It's not that difficult.
