Where Is My Primary Vault Located/I Do Not Have A 1Password Account

MrMojoOneMrMojoOne Junior Member

I have just upgraded from 1Password 6 to 1Password 7. While I am able to locate my backups, I do not know where my Primary Vault is located on my Mac. I do not currently have a 1Password account. I want to know the vault location so I can ascertain whether my Primary Vault is included in my Backblaze and CrashPlan backups.

Is the Primary Vault in the same location for both 1Password 6 and 7? (I don't know the answer for either version.)


1Password Version: 7.2.5
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: OS 10.12.6
Sync Type: No Sync

    @MrMojoOne: 1Password data is cached in the support folder (whose location will vary depending on what you're using exactly), but there will only be a "vault" written to disk if you're syncing. It's best to do a full disk backup no matter what, but if you want to have your vault written to a specific location for backup and restore purposes you can set it to sync with a local folder of your choosing in Preferences > Sync. Cheers! :)

    You say it is cached in the "support folder" whose location will vary depending on what I am using exactly... What do you mean "what I am using?" The 1Password version? The Mac OS version? And are you saying that unless I sync more than one device there is no actual "vault" created?

    Another problem I am having: It appears that the trial version is limited in certain ways. . . I do not find an "Edit" button for example. How can I properly evaluate version 7 when I do not have access to basic functions that I normally have in version 6? I may need to switch back to version 6 simply because I am having trouble doing basic functions while working on my computer.

    @MrMojoOne - apologies for the confusion. There is always a vault created; if there were not, you wouldn't have any data. If you're using 1Password 7 for Mac, then your data file (all vaults, all data) is in the following location:

    ~/Library/Group Containers/2BUA8C4S2C.com.agilebits/Library/Application Support/1Password/Data/OnePassword.sqlite

    If your CrashPlan and/or Backblaze backups are capturing your /User/Library folder, then this is included in your backups on whatever schedule you're using.

    Thank you Lars. I've confirmed that the data files are in that location. While Backblaze excludes the System Library from its backups, User Libraries are included. I now know that my 1Password 7 data is being backed up.

    Does 1Password 6 use the same location?

    @MrMojoOne - no. 1Password 6 for Mac (and earlier) data location was dependent upon whether your version of 1Password was installed from us or from the Mac App Store. The two locations for that are:

    • Mac App Store - ~/Library/Containers/2BUA8C4S2C.com.agilebits.onepassword-osx-helper/Data/Library/Data/OnePassword.sqlite
    • AgileBits version - ~/Library/Application Support/1Password 4/Data/OnePassword.sqlite

    Hope that's helpful. :)

    Very helpful! My previous version is from the App Store so the Primary Vault location is the same as for v.7. Prior to v.6 I had a Family License from the AgileBits store.

    I still have a 1Password.agilekeychain in my Documents folder, presumably from an older version than 1Password 6. I assume that it is safe to trash that. . . ;)

    @MrMojoOne: Versions from 2 to 6 used AgileKeychain. So if you've already got all your data in 1Password 7, you really don't need the old vault anymore. The only thing it could be used for at this point would be reverting to an old version or importing into version 7. So if you're good to go with version 7 already it won't benefit you. :)
