Switching from DropBox t iCloud syncing with multiple vaults. I'm only able to move the primary over

I have two additional vaults that I also want to convert to iCloud sync, but the only options that show for either is DropBox or folder.

1Password Version: 1Password Version 6.1 (610006) Mac App Store
Extension Version: 4.5.5
OS Version: 10.11.4 (15E65)
Sync Type: moving to iCloud

    Hey there @grizfan93,

    Sorry for the confusion about this.

    But unfortunately iCloud syncing only functions for the primary vault and not any secondary vaults. :angry:

    So you should probably stick with DropBox syncing for your secondary vaults.

    Sorry about that.

  • Dang... My corporate IT department has this strange distrust of DropBox (blocking access at work) but no problems with iCloud for some reason. That prevents me from keeping my work Mac in sync with my other stuff...
    Would syncing to a folder in iCloud be an option?

    Hi @grizfan93,

    That's too bad that DropBox is not allowed in your environment! :angry:

    Yes indeed iCloud Drive would indeed work and you can set it up using the "Folder Sync" setup.

    Dropbox is a superior way to do it however, since it has better conflict resolution when files are changed on different devices. But Folder sync does indeed work well.

    Hope this helps.
