I got a new laptop and how to sync my 1password info on this laptop


I have been using 1Password in my laptop without an issue. I got new Windows laptop and how I can use 1password on this one (without losing all the data from the old laptop), so I don't have to save all the passwords from old one on to the new laptop? How can I sync my old laptop saved login and password on to my new laptop,without a problem?

    Hi @MyAgile,

    Are you planning to use anything to sync your data between both computers, not just 1Password, like OneDrive? You can move your 1Password data folder into your OneDrive folder or configure your own sync tool to sync the folder between both computers and that should be all you need to do.

    If you're not sure, we'd recommend using Dropbox. You can see our guide here on how to make it work: https://support.1password.com/guides/windows/sync-dropbox.html

    I used Dropbox sync using your help instructions. But the issue still persists. I used 1password for few days and saved those login info separately on new laptop before I did Dropbox sync. Is that the reasons that new desktop (sorry not laptop) doesn't show all my old logins in 1password screen?

    I also for new laptop, where I didn't use 1password at all and I entered license info in 1password, everything worked like a charm. But not on my desktop though. What is that I am missing. I did enter license info on desktop but of no use.

    Hi @Giri,

    They both should match up as long they're correctly configured. Could you email us the 1Password diagnostics reports from both PCs and we'll see what's going on.
