The "Restore from Google Drive" dialog incorrectly asks for a key file

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm using an M1 Mac with macOS Big Sur 11.1 (20C69) and Enpass 6.5.2 (726).

When I try to import a vault from Google Drive, Enpass restore dialog asks for a keyfile. But, there is no key file for this vault. I can't import the vault without a keyfile. It works on various other devices without a key file being "required".

Does anyone know the problem?

Here is a screenshot:

I checked this again on an Intel-based Mac. Also macOS 11.1 (20C69) and Enpass 6.5.2 (726). No issue here!

I have observed that it does not appear to be the case with all vaults at the M1 Mac! So with another vault, the problem does not occur on an M1 Mac. It occurs reliably with my main vault.

No key file is requested for my main vault on an Intel-based Mac:

Hey @Peter Pan

Welcome to the forum!

It seems there is 2 vaults(primary and secondary), primary vault doesn't have a keyfile and you are trying to restore the data from Google-drive in the secondary vault which has a keyfile. Please check again the particular secondary vault keyfile and use the same to restore the data.

Let me know if you have any concerns.
