The Cyclonis Password Manager uninstaller does not delete your encrypted vault automatically, whether you opted to store it locally or using a cloud storage option.
It is important to note that deleting your encrypted Cyclonis Password Manager vault will also irreversibly delete the usernames, passwords, Private Notes, and all other data stored in your vault.
You may wish to backup your encrypted vault before deleting it. To do so, you may use the Export Encrypted Vault function in the Cyclonis Password Manager desktop application, located under File menu > Import/Export. If you have uninstalled Cyclonis Password Manager, you will need to reinstall the desktop application to access the Export Encrypted Vault function.
You should not attempt to delete your Cyclonis Password Manager vault until you have already uninstalled Cyclonis Password Manager.
Here are the steps you need to take to manually delete your Cyclonis Password Manager vault.
If you chose the Local Storage option:

Note: The Cyclonis Password Manager folders in %ProgramData% and /Library/Application Support/ contain the vaults of ALL users who have used Cyclonis Password Manager on the device. If you would like to only remove a single user’s vault, you can open the Cyclonis Password Manager folder (designated above), select the vault file that you want to remove, and delete it. You can associate a Cyclonis Password Manager vault file with an account by the name of the file.
