Okay, I need help, badly. A forum I use a lot (reputable site) has been having some security issues apparently, and recommended members clear cache and temporary files and reset browsers so everything is working smoothly when they go back online. I did Reset Safari, but all the boxes were ticked including the one that said 'Remove saved names and passwords'. I left this ticked because I thought it meant the passwords would be gone JUST from safari, and would remain in my Keychains, but they didn't! OMG, they are totally gone, all but a small handful (a couple of dozen vs about 200 entries I remember having before). The reason why I had so many is I'm in the middle of a BIG project reorganizing my entire online presence for lack of a better word, all my IDs, site memberships, passwords, the lot, some going as far back as 2003 or something, and I was transferring the details from all the notebooks or index cards etc where I would write these down as I created the accounts onto the keychain access app so I'd have a good record all in one place of everywhere I'm a member. Now all this is gone, and I'm in major panic mode! I have no idea what to do to bring these back, or heck even if I can. Please help - I am seriously at a loss. I know I should not have tossed the hard copy notes bfore being done with the project, I am not normally so irresponsible - in fact usually I'm so over-cautious about that kind of thing that I end up keeping notes for ages after I'm done with them, taking up room in my files that I honestly need for newer things! That's why this time I told myself nothing terrible would happen by letting go a little bit. It's just my luck that something HAD to happen on the one occasion I decided it was okay to let go after triple-checking and don't bother with more don't know what to do...the thought that there could be accounts out there I can't even remember is freaking me out so bad...I don't know if it helps but I have Time Machine. I would say I'm sending virtual cookies as a thank-you if you help but honestly, this is worth way more than cookies to me. I'd do your laundry for a year or something! God, I hope I can sort this out.
