And if you don't need that level, you can also just use a SharePoint list and lock it down with appropriate permissions.

We store our passwordsafe files in a sharepoint library. I also keep a copy up on skydrive in a private folder....

I feel it's too risky to keep critical passwords on any sort of local disk, network share, or cloud service.  (Think PCI compliance) I keep my list on an IronKey encrypted USB flash drive, which I carry with me everywhere I go.  It's remotely erasable should it be lost.  There's a printed copy of the passwords kept in a locked safe at the office, that the CEO can access in the event of my demise.

I use a locally hosted installation of Secret Server (http://www.thycotic.com/products_secretserver_overview.html) for passwords, application license keys etc. Works well and easy enough to backup.
