The backup battery died and the iMac2017 running on an external Thunderbolt got corrupted so I erased it, reinstalled Monterey and restored from Time Machine, omitting “other files…”. Starting up, I had to enter my Dropbox password and went through the choices of what Dropbox folders to sync. I have been using both Strongbox and 1Password7 as a test for some months – yes, extra work. I started up Strongbox to get my Dropbox password, and of course, it couldn’t get my Strongbox passwords from Dropbox. Here is what is confusing me. I started up 1Password 7 and it said that it was damaged and to trash it and re-download it from the App Store, but then it started anyway and it knew my Dropbox password even though I sync my passwords for 1Password using Dropbox. Hm… how did 1Password know my Dropbox password?
Could well be a cached version in the Library you restored?
What adieb said. 1Password 7’s local database isn’t in your Dropbox, that’s only used for synching. The local database is in ~/Library/Group Containers/2BUA8C4S2C.com.agilebits/Library/Application Support/1Password.
So the question is: what was restored from Time Machine, when you omitted “other files…”?
Good question. It seems that omitting “other files” resulted in Filemaker 15 forgetting its license and the computer couldn’t print. I am going to try storing an additional Strongbox database in iCloud.
