No option to move 1Password 6 data stored in Dropbox to 1Password 7 - now what?

Community Member

I've used 1Password 6, syncing my vault to Dropbox. I wanted to simplify the sync by signing for a 1Password Account. I followed the instructions to sign up, downloaded iPassword 7, installed it. However, I never received a request to copy my old 1Password 6 data. Now I have 1Password 7 installed, with only an empty vault, and my old vault resides on Dropbox. What do I do now?

1Password Version: 7.1.1
Extension Version: 4.6.6
OS Version: 10.13.4
Sync Type: Dropbox

  • Hi @mbolinga,

    I’m sorry about the confusion... It sounds as something didn’t go quite as planned here. What happens if you double click on your keychain file in Dropbox? Does 1Password 7 open it? If so you should be able to migrate the items in that keychain into your Personal vault, and then delete the Primary vault:

    Move your existing 1Password data to a 1Password account

    Please let me know how it turns out.
