I have several files where I store my passwords. I could not remember master password for one of them and tried different combinations(I inserted 6 wrong and 7th was correct one). On the 7th try i got "Unknown Error" with the following text


Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/revelation", line 191, in <lambda> action.connect("activate", lambda w: self.file_open()) File "/usr/bin/revelation", line 1462, in file_open entrystore = self.file_load(file, password) File "/usr/bin/revelation", line 990, in file_load return datafile.load(file, password, lambda: dialog.PasswordOpen(self, os.path.basename(file)).run()) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/revelation/io.py", line 114, in load entrystore = self.__handler.import_data(data, password) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/revelation/datahandler/rvl.py", line 375, in import_data input = zlib.decompress(input[0:-padlen]) error: Error -3 while decompressing data: incorrect header check


with two option "Quit" and "continue". If I click on "continue" Revelation open NEW FILE. Now when ever I am trying to open this file it behave in the same manner(as described above). On the same time the Revelation open all other files without any problems.

    I am having the same problem, it seems as though the data file has become corrupted. My password was > 32 characters, this could be part of the problem. This is serious.

    Yes I have lost 200gb of files and drawings, pics and the lot. It os a virus that corrupt your files from the inside and makes it unreadable. Still looking for a fix.

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/revelation", line 191, in <lambda> action.connect("activate", lambda w: self.file_open()) File "/usr/bin/revelation", line 1462, in file_open entrystore = self.file_load(file, password) File "/usr/bin/revelation", line 990, in file_load return datafile.load(file, password, lambda: dialog.PasswordOpen(self, os.path.basename(file)).run()) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/revelation/io.py", line 114, in load entrystore = self.__handler.import_data(data, password) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/revelation/datahandler/rvl.py", line 375, in import_data input = zlib.decompress(input[0:-padlen]) error: Error -3 while decompressing data: incorrect header check
