Is there a way to automatically remove duplicate items from my vault?

When I switched to the latest version of 1Password, it seems like almost all items in my vault are listed multiple times. This applies to all sorts of items including Logins, Driver Licences, Documents, Identities, etc. Is there any way to automatically delete duplicate items?

Thanks.

    Hi @blove

    Could you please check if you see a vault called "Primary" in the vault switcher (top left of the app)?

  • Hi Ben,

    When I look at it on my iMac, I have a vault called Primary (under ON MY MAC). When I look on my macbook, I do not.

  • Hi @blove (Betty),

    If you're only seeing duplicates on the iMac then it sounds like all we need to do is remove the Primary vault on the iMac's copy of 1Password for Mac. This isn't too bad and the following should sort you out :smile:

    1. In 1Password for Mac on the iMac, Select the menu option Vault > Switch to Vault > Primary so that the Primary vault is active.
    2. With the Primary vault active, select the menu option Vault > Delete Vault... and follow the prompts.

    These steps are only applicable if you have a 1Password account but the presence of a Primary vault on only one Mac does strongly indicate this is the case. If you're concerned at all or are finding the steps aren't working please let us know and we'll continue troubleshooting with you.

  • On my macbook I have a duplicate of every entry. So deleting the Primary vault on the imac might fix part of the problem, it won't fix everything.

    And before I delete the Primary vault on the imac, is there a way to make sure everything that's in it is also in the Personal vault?

    Thanks.

    In that case you may want to try using the Help > Tools > Clean Up Duplicate Items menu. This option is only available when viewing a single vault; not in "All Vaults" view. This should be done in addition to (not instead of) deleting any "Primary" vaults.

    And before I delete the Primary vault on the imac, is there a way to make sure everything that's in it is also in the Personal vault?

    Yes, the Help > Tools > Migrate Standalone Vaults to Account... option should help with that.

    Please let us know how it turns out.
