Community Member

is the Secret Key Saved in a Document somewhere on the harddrive?

All the best,

    Ok, so I found an sqlite Database and a string that seems to be my encrypted Secret.

    Is it possible to restore it from that?
    Ok it has to be possible, but will you help me with that :D?

    Ok last comment:
    I just copied my 1password configuration folder to the new disk - works like a charm. :)

    Great that you got it working. I would strongly recommend printing a copy of your Emergency Kit so you don't lose it again. :)

    @fealXX: I'm glad to hear you found it too! @pervel has the most excellent advice too. I definitely support printing your Emergency Kit or keeping a copy on a USB drive, just in case of precisely this sort of situation. :chuffed: :+1:
