I want to do some housekeeping and clean install OS X, as you can imagine I want to keep all my Wi-fi passwords, web passwords etc. I had a quick read around the forum but something did not quite work right. One of the answers was: Provided you have the same username, you should be able to copy ~/Library/Keychains/login.keychain to the same spot on your new Mac. I have tried that but I only have apsd.keychain and System.keychain. Another suggestion was: "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. Youll have to give your old password, but presumably you know that I tried that as well. It lets you copy one item at a time and you can only copy the password Any new suggestions besides copying 1 by 1 every single password and what it is for?
