    So I think my Keychain file is corrupted. Passwords aren't being saved to it (I've repaired permissions to no avail) so I just want to start with a fresh Keychain. How do I go about doing this? I don't want to just go deleting files since I may screw something up. Thanks

    If you want to delete the keychain file and start from scratch, delete the file:

    login.keychain

    It is located here:

    HD > Users > YOUR USER ID > Library > Keychains

    Thanks!

    After you pointed me to that file, I discovered it wasn't actually imported as an active keychain for some reason, so I imported it using Keychain Access and all seems well for now. If not, can I just delete that file and will it automatically create a new one? Thanks
