Hi,

I have 1password 3 on Mavericks and I attempted to upgrade to version 4. I downloaded version 4 and copied it to the Applications Folder but it did not overwrite the old version. So now, I have two versions. How can I utilize the new version and have it connect with my old password files? Then, how do I delete the old version without losing my passwords? Any ideas?

Thank you for any advice.

    There's a useful knowledge base article here about how to upgrade from 1P3 to 1P4. See also this knowledge base article:

    Does 1Password 4 use the same keychain as 1Password 3?

    It sounds as though for some reason 1P4 has not found your 1P3 data and if you can't provoke it to do so as a result of reading either of those please wait for some more expert advice. Certainly don't for the moment delete 1P3 until you're entirely happy all your information is safely in 1P4.

    I realise this post may not be of much help but thought it might be better than nothing!

    Hi @hkrimsly,

    It looks like Stephen already gave you some helpful information about switching from 1Password 3 to 1Password 4 on your Mac. Did that help to sort things out for you? If you still have questions or need help, please let us know. Thanks!

    In the end, version 4 worked and recognized the password file but version 3 did not automatically delete itself so I manually took care of that.

    My husband--who is a computer scientist--helped me figure it out. I'm not sure what we did but it worked.

    Thanks for your support.
