restore backup


on a computer where no keychain existed, I wanted to create one by restoring a backup. However, when I launched the windows application, I only had 2 options : use existing keychain and create a new one. Impossible to directly restore a backup. I had to create a fake keychain, and then I had access to the menu bar and could choose to restore a backup.

Do you plan to propose a third option "restore from backup" on the welcome screen ?

Thank you,

    Thanks for the suggestion, François! That may be something we can look into including in a future version of all our 1Password products.

    In the meantime, the steps you took are what's necessary to start over from a restored backup.
