Can't migrate to v8: Vault wrong format

Community Member

Hi There,

I've had to erase and reinstall my Mac and upgrade to 1Password v8. However, this means I don't have v7 standalone. The instructions here don't work as I'm not asked to 'Add this account' when signing-in to 1password.com: https://support.1password.com/migrate-1password-account/

I have my v7 vault backed up but when I try to import, 1Password states it's an unreadable format? It has a .opvault extension.

How to I import my v7 vault?
And after import. how to I rename the vault called 'Personal'?

Cheers, Ben

    For anyone else struggling with his, it seems you can't migrate if you're in this situation.

    luckily, I had v7 on an iOS device so did it that way. Confusing, scary and painful when you're in a hurry (like having to erase and reinstall your system).

    Hello @sciascia! 👋

    I'm sorry that you ran into trouble when migrating from an older standalone vault. I'm happy that you were able to migrate using 1Password 7 on iOS.

    Please let me know if there is anything else that I can help you with. 🙂
