Upgrade from 1Password6 via Dropbox - Vault not syncing


I just recently upgraded from 1pass6 where I would sync devices via dropbox. Now after creating a 1passsword.com account, I don't see my dropbox vault sync'd to the cloud. In the vaults (locally in 1pass7) view, I see

My Family Vaults
- Private
- Shared
My Legacy Vault
My Other Legacy Vault

Is there a way to merge these vaults somehow and get them sync'd to the cloud?

1Password Version: Not Provided
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: OSX
Sync Type: 1password.com

    During the account creation process, your older Dropbox vault should have been imported into your Private vault. Do you see duplicates of your logins from the old vault there? I don't want to give you duplicates that you'll need to clean up.

    @ag_tommy - thanks for the quick reply! I do not see duplicates when I log into 1password.com, in fact I see the two family vaults mentioned above and inside of them looks like boilerplate entries (ie 'Welcome to 1Password').

    Sounds like you'll need to move your data over. Completing the steps here should get you going. Move your existing 1Password data to a 1Password account

  • success - thank you!

    You're welcome! Enjoy!

  • Hello. Unfortunately this doesn't work for me.
    There is a note to upgrade to 1password7 and it'll automatically migrate data....
    My mac is old and have only the ability to run 1password6; cannot upgrade to ver 7.
    I have exported my data but how to import it to 1password.com?

    Where are you getting stuck exactly?

    The instructions Tommy posted can be followed in 1Password 6 too. Have you given them a try already?
