Running Cloud & Computer Based Vaults Simultaneously

I have had the legacy 1Password programs installed in my personal Mac & iPhone and on a Windows laptop at work. I had used Dropbox to sync the personal machines but, due to company policy, had to manually sync my vault on the Windows laptop.

I just signed up for the cloud service and have it set up on my personal machines. However, because I have work logins on my Windows computer, I am not sure my company will want me to have them in a cloud they don't control. Is it possible to run two vaults (one that remains on the computer and one from 1Password's cloud service) on the same computer?

    Thanks for writing in.

    Yes but there is a limitation right now in 1Password 6 for Windows. 1Password 6 for Windows can do both the accounts and local vaults but it can only write to the 1Password accounts. Local vaults are read-only and you can sync local vaults via Dropbox, OneDrive or via local folder on the drive.

    We will bring full support for local vaults to 1Password 6 for Windows but no timeframe on this.

    Since the local vault would be on the work computer, you would need to use 1Password 4 for Windows to handle the local vault locally while using 1Password 6 for your account. You can switch between them if you need to but it will be a bit difficult to use, you can find out more here.
