Removing duplicates

Vault confusion has left me with around 200 duplicate passwords. I can identify the passwords duplicated - now how do I get the rid of the duplicates without doing it one by one?

1Password Version: 1Password 6 Version 6.8.6 (686004) AgileBits Store
Extension Version: 1Password: Password Manager and Secure Wallet 4.6.
OS Version: OSX 10.10.3
Sync Type: Dropbox

    @Mister_Martyn2014 - Are these just passwords? Or are they Login items? Are they all in a single vault, or are the duplicates spread out over many vaults? There are a few strategies to group things together, where you can select all and move them to the trash, but there's no automatic "remove duplicates" magic. 1Password in general is VERY conservative with your data; if you have what you know to be duplicates, you'll need to explicitly trash them.

    Thanks for replying, Lars. It seems the Mac OS version I use has the option of choosing between a Primary vault and then a vault in my name. When both of these are checked and I click on All vaults, I see a huge amount of duplication.

    Changing the vault removes this from my view at least.

    I only need what is in the vault in my name, but I cannot seem to delete the Primary vault - to be honest I do not understand the purpose of the Primary vault. I only need my vault - so why have All vaults? :) Sorry - very confused.

    You can remove the Primary vault by selecting 1Password > Preferences > Advanced > Uncheck the option for allowing creation of vaults outside accounts. The Primary vault would be a remnant of a time before membership.

    I hope that helps. Should you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to ask.
