I accidentally deleted my 1Password file stored and synced through Dropbox

edited February 15 in Mac

I do not have the "Sync" option in my 1P preferences (as described on the website) to be able to select my existing DB account/file. I can see the file sitting in Dropbox, I just cannot determine how to make 1P see and connect to the file. (There is more to the story as to why I was trying to delete a vault in the first place, but my pressing issue is to re-gain access to the DB vault as it is my current, up-to-date file. Maybe the root problem is that I am "swimming upstream" by wanting to maintain control of my data on Dropbox rather than your servers. I maintain a current subscription to the full 1P package and my software is up to date.

1Password Version:7.4.2
_Extension Version:
Not Provided
OS Version:10.15.2
_Sync Type:Dropbox

  • Nevermind, I figured out how to restore my Dropbox Vault. Now I would like to copy/merge that data into my "Personal" vault that is synced through 1P servers
