I was using a multi-user version 5 (up to date) on Mac, iPhone, and iPad; all sync'd through Dropbox (actually was only 1 user, therefore all were identical).
Did a clean install on a new Mac, installing Family account using version 6. In doing that I created two problems - duplication of items and, more urgently, I lost a private vault with a small number of items in it. Both iPhone and iPad are on the new account now.
Have a clone of the old computer drive that is still pristine if that helps recovery (not a bootable drive). Still have DropBox and could go back in time there. I have a couple of new and updated items in my Family account that I would like to keep even if I were to do a clean restore of data.
Have not placed any account info in my shared folder, yet, so that is pristine.
Primary question: how to recover the lost vault.
Secondary question: easiest possible way to avoid or clean up duplicates.
Tertiary question: easiest way to find and save updated items so that they can be kept if the data is restored.
