Attempt to write a readonly database

My MacBook was recently restored from a Timemachine backup. After that I'm receiving "attempt to write a readonly database" error while update any item in 1Password (v7.2.5). Please help guide how to resolve this kind of issue. Thanks!

1Password Version: 7.2.5
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: OS X 10.14.3
Sync Type: Not Provided

    @Ayu4ever: Indeed, that means the permissions are incorrect on the files, so 1Password cannot write to them. You'd need to correct the file permissions in order for that to work. The app cannot write to files under your current user account which are owned by the one from your backup. I'll follow up with you via email in case you need guidance with fixing your problem.
