Replace data on iPhone with Dropbox data?

coachbb94coachbb94 Junior Member

Syncing between iPhone and Dropbox stopped and the iPhone lost the knowledge that it had ever synced to Dropbox. When trying to reset up sync on the iPhone only get the option to merge iPhone data with Dropbox data. Do not want to merge data since we are sure that the Dropbox data is up-to-date. Know this because an iMac and iPad are currently syncing data to Dropbox). Is there a way to prevent the merge and only download from Dropbox?

1Password Version: 6.7.2
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: 10.3.2
Sync Type: Dropbox

    @coachbb94 : You have two options in this case.

    Option 1 : Merge

    Merge will very likely do exactly what you expect. Since dropbox had the latest data it should push all the latest changes down to the iPhone and be fine. For any items that might have been modified on the phone itself, the items will be put through conflict resolution and the app will keep the last edit, and the other information will be put into a section on the item called Conflicts.

    Option 2 : Reset All 1Password Data

    If you really want to force the data from Dropbox to the iPhone, then the best way to do so is to use the Settings > Advanced > Reset all 1Password Data button, then relaunch 1Password, point it to your Dropbox vault in the first run screen, and enter your Master Password.

    I hope this helps.
