The password manager that I use has instructions to migrate to a new file format:
- Export existing passwords to a temporary text file
- Change password manager to new format
- Import passwords from temporary text file
- Securely erase the temporary text file
My hard drive is an SSD (solid state drive), which has it's own issues when it comes to securely deleting files (see https://serverfault.com/questions/199672/secure-delete-on-ssd)
Given that I also have full disk encryption turned on, is it safe to just delete the text file normally?
Is there a more secure way to do this (use a RAM disk, export to USB stick then destroy USB stick after the data has been imported?)
