Attempt to sync with a different vault than originally configured.

One password has become so confusing with so many versions that do not align across platforms. I have been using a standalone version on OSX and IOS for years. I have recently got a Windows 10 PC now and wanted to get up and running there too. I want this to be Standalone also as I do not trust anything web or cloud based.

I have 6.8.8 on my Mac / OSX. I believe this to be Standalone only.
I have what looks like 7.3.3 on OSX which I have as Standalone only. It looks like this supports both models?
I installed 4.6.2 on my Windows 10 PC which I believe to be the latest Standalone version and think I must avoid later?

So I am trying to WLAN sync my IOS to my windows 10. They are both aware of each other and share a common secret, however what I tell them to sync, I get an error as per the title: "Attempt to sync with a different vault than originally configured."

I would be grateful for any advice on how I can include Windows with my other platforms.

Also, I now notice that versions 4 and 6 and labeled as Legacy. Are you now planning to abandon your standalone customers?

    @Roger_Standalone: Old versions of 1Password are always listed as "legacy" because they're no longer being developed. The new Windows app supports both local vaults and accounts, but does not have a WLAN Server feature. If you want to continue using WLAN Server to sync data, you can do that using an app that has that feature though. You'd not be able to sync between multiple computers with that anyway however, as it's always supported a single computer syncing with one or more mobile devices -- which is why you're getting that error: you're trying to sync the mobile device with a computer other than the one you paired it with. But I'd encourage you to check out the other sync options we've added in the last decade. They're much more reliable and convenient, and your 1Password data is end-to-end encrypted, so 1Password simply doesn't depend on the sync service to protect your data. And 1Password memberships offer additional security and convenience as well. I hope this helps. Be sure to let me know if you have any other questions! :)

  • What is the best way to sync two computers on a standalone version with no data leaving the LAN? Can this be achieved with the local folders option mentioned in ?

    @Roger_Standalone: You'd need to sync the data to a local folder on each computer, and then use something else to synchronize those between each other. Do not try to have 1Password sync to a network drive. That's a world of hurt and can easily lead to data loss. We don't get notified of network drive disconnects the way we do with local drives. It just fails.
