1Password 6 mini still running after 1Password 7 install

I upgraded to 1 PW 7 (and Family subscription) last week and had Trashed the 1 PW 6 application. Upon restart, my 1 PW 6 mini icon in the menu bar was gone, and the 1 PW 7 mini icon present, as expected. I had some trouble migrating my Dropbox synced vault, but got excellent email help from Max last Sunday and we have that fixed.

However, yesterday after a restart I realized my 1 PW 6 mini icon is back, right next to the 1 PW 7 icon! I cannot log into it, and as far as I can tell, 1 PW 7 is working fine.

Thoughts about how to fix this?


1Password Version: 7.4.1
Extension Version: N/A (Safari)
OS Version: 10.15.2, Mac Pro 2019
Sync Type: PW X (Family Subscription, right?)

    Hi @icedoc

    Did you empty the trash? I am asking because it sounds as if macOS started a copy of the mini from there, or from another location such as a clone drive or backup drive. We recommend excluding the 1Password application from all backups. If you have a clone/backup please exclude 1Password, and remove the copy thats located on that clone/backup. Empty the trash, and a reboot should solve the issue.

    If none of this sounds familiar, then I want to ask you to create a diagnostics report.
