Should I delete a no-longer-used 1Password vault from Dropbox?

I just switched to iCloud sync and that's already working on all 3 of my devices.

    If I were you, I would delete the file on Dropbox that you no longer use, since you say iCloud is working for you now. If you should ever decide to return to Dropbox for syncing, 1Password would recreate the necessary file there. But I tend to try to keep things clean to avoid confusing myself. There isn't any reason that you must delete your Dropbox sync file. It won't interfere with anything.

    Hi @cchuck,

    I would agree with hawkmoth, the presence of what is essentially obsolete data now can only end up causing confusion at a later point so its removal now will hopefully remove that possibility.
