Getting passwords & logins from another macbook via Target Disk Mode

My Macbook Pro recently crashed in an unfixable way besides doing a wipe & starting over. I've moved over my files and applications to another mac by connecting the two via ethernet and using Target Disk Mode.
How can I move my passwords & logins from the Target Disk Mode Mac to my working Mac so that I can use 1Password on my sites there?
What would be the standard directory for me to find this data?

1Password Version: 5.4.1
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: 10.10.5
Sync Type: Not Provided

    This knowledge base article will help you find the data you need:

    Where does 1Password store its data?

    Note the answer will differ depending on whether you're using the Mac App Store version of 1Password or the AgileBits store version.

    Hey @ccbergstrom,

    Arrrgh! What a pain! These timesaving devices (computers) really are a wonder...right up until the time they go belly-up and require us to spend approximately a zillion hours rescuing/fixing/replacing them.

    Stephen_C's advice is spot-on; you'll need to look for the data in either of those two locations, depending on whether you had the Mac App Store version of 1Password or our version. But you should be able to simply copy the entire folder out of either location and bring it over to your new Mac. Let us know if you run into any difficulties, and good luck with the rest of the system restore!
