    In the lead up to Lion im doing some house keeping, and well yeah i cant remember usernames and passwords for the life of me xD

    Anyone know a way to export this information from Keychain Access?

    (BTW, the Export button in File, is only for certificates)

    You can copy the entire set of keychains directly without exporting them. According to mac help, they're generally found in the keychains folder in your library folder. Copy them to a usb drive or put them somewhere secure on the network, then open keychain access in lion. You can then add them with the "+" button, and select the file from your drive.

    You'll have to give your old password, but presumably you know that :D
