    After resetting my keychain, I had some issues so I restored from Time Machine. Now I have an empty "read only" keychain in Keychain Access. I've already rebooted, but that didn't help. I've searched Finder and the file doesn't exist. How do I remove it from Keychain Access. Here's a screenshot.

    Terminal experts will no doubt suggest the right command.
    Unfortunately my knowledge is not so great.
    However the free tool "Deeper" from Titanium Software can show all the normally hidden files in the finder (and make them invisible again).
    Should you in such a way find that file, by clicking on the chainlock icon and giving your admin name, wouldn't it be possible to change that file from read-only to read-and-write, and in this way delete it? :rolleyes:

    The lock for that file is greyed out and I don't have access.

    Figured it out. Something so simple. I had to use the menu bar under "Edit" and the "Delete" option was there.
