If I delete all the cache files from my Mac, does that effect items stored in 1password?

My Mac is running slow so I want to clear all my cashe files. If I hit "select all", it will include a file that says it is 1password. Just making sure clearing all my cashe file won't delete my 1passwrod logins....

    Hey @Deedaday -- can you tell us a little more about how you're going about this? What tool are you using to perform this cache-cleaning, and what file is showing up that you're considering deleting?

    Safari>preferences>Privacy>Manage Website Data, 1Password.com is in a huge list and shows cashe, cookies, local storage. I can choose to "delete all" or, alternatively I would have to select each individual one ( and there are a ton)that I want to delete the cashes etc.

    @Deedaday -- Thanks for the clarification. You actually don't have to do all or one-by-one, if you don't want. You can select all (⌘A) and then hold down the command (⌘) key and click on 1password.com. That should give you all BUT 1Password, if you don't want to delete the 1Password data. :-)

    You probably do not want to delete the 1Password file, correct.
