Lost password to secondary vault synced to Dropbox

Hi, I am setting up a new macbook with 1password, and I have a primary vault and a secondary vault (both synced using dropbox). I have the master password for the primary vault, and I'm able to sync that one with dropbox. I was unable to sync the secondary vault b/c I forgot the password to it (didn't put it in the primary vault like I should have). Reading the support forum I restored the secondary vault from a backup of it made on another computer where I have both vaults running fine. However, although I have all of the passwords from the backup now, I'm unable to sync the secondary vault still to dropbox b/c I don't have the password. Is there any way around this issue?

Thank you,

1Password Version: 5.3
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: 10.10.5
Sync Type: Dropbox


  • I suspect the answer may be to create a new secondary vault (and, of course, to note the password for it in your primary vault ;) ), to move all the relevant data to the new secondary vault and then delete the old (empty) secondary vault.

    @bshaggy: Indeed! Just create a new secondary vault (you'll need to first select your primary) and then you can add the data to it as Stephen_C suggested. Please let us know if you have any other questions! :)
