YAAAASSSSSSSS 1PW for Windows makes it to Dropbox syncing! HU-blimmin-ZAH!
one teensy gripe for those of us that have been around since year zero. I finally had to capitulate and upgrade my original primary vault from keychain to OPVault. (I forget why I never upgraded waaaay back when- there was something very nervy about the mac/win interactions between vs3&4)
It would have been somewhat pragmatic to be able to do this in 1PW6 on the mac (as that is it's primary residence) but of course 1PW7WinBeta takes a lead in this as it needs the vault to be OP Vault (perils of Betas etc etc- not got an issue here).
However as 1PW6Mac has no obvious means of doing the vault upgrade I let 1PW7Win take care of business- all fine and dandy so far!
What has somewhat peeved me (little peeve; this is Beta territory, I know!) was that on repointing 1PW6Mac to my new shiny Primary Vault and all it's OPVault Loveliness was that it decided I needed to "Merge" the files. Now forgive me and my cross-atlantic comprehension of the English language; but, ordinarily, when merging is introduced as a concept it generally implies that a degree of de-duping is going to take place- possibly even more so when there is no other option given to reattach (or should I have tried to "Import" my Primary vault?) - so imagine the slightly horrified look on my face when my vault literally doubled in size!
I've just completed removing nearly 900 duplicate entries from my shiny new vault- thankfully I'm quite tidy when it comes to data housekeeping so it wasn't too arduous- but it was a right pain in the proverbial.
I've waited very (OK - mostly) patiently for the Dropbox syncing version of 1PWWin to resurface (dontcha just lurrrve corporate networks) as 1PW FOURWin was starting to look very very out of place. And I fully accept that my actions as a beta tester and their consequences are fully my own responsibility.
But pretty please, for those less tech savvy than I, that are still locked into some tech doldrum not entirely of their own making (viz Corporates) please make any Vault upgrading slightly less irksome- maybe a dedupe functionality for all types now that unified vaults are here again for all?
