Re: Honest question...

All you need to do is keep a backup on a different device. If you update your primary device database, close it, then reopen it to make sure it's not corrupt. Then copy it to your backup device.

Then, if you discover a corrupt password database on your primary device, copy the known good one from your other device. It's another step, but if you have hundreds of passwords it's worth it.
