When you first open Grindstone you will be prompted to create a new database or select an existing one:
Creating a New Database:
Click on Browse in the Grindstone Database Setup dialog and navigate to the location desired.
Then enter a file name and click Save.
Setting an encryption password for your new database is also possible with Grindstone during this stage.
Regardless if you encrypt your database during the setup process you will always be able to encrypt, decrypt, and change the password of your database. To learn more about the encryption feature, please refer to Database Encryption.
Using an Existing Grindstone Database:
Select the tick box next to “Use an existing Grindstone database.” Then locate your database file by clicking Browse.
Lastly, complete the database setup by clicking Continue.
