My data file has dissappeared

I'm running 1Password 3.8.21. Recently, I noticed that 1Password was no longer responding to the cmd+\ shortcut to autofill login forms. Also, there is a red error badge over the icon in chrome ( When clicked it states that 1Password Helper process is experiencing problems. I almost always use the chrome extension and rarely use the actual app, but I opened up the app to see if I could figure out what was going on and was greeted with the welcome screen asking me to set up a new data file (

Everything was setup and running fine a few days ago. I havn't installed any new software or updated anything in that time. Curiously, the 1Password chrome extension still has all my logins and wallet information. It appears that the app has lost the data file somehow. Is there any way of restoring this without having to add all my information back in manually?
