Accessing Local Vault Is The MOST Complicated Process Ever

Postby Lab41 » Tue Apr 02, 2013 2:46 am

Hi

I manage many websites and use many programs.

I am trying to access my local vault and have spent 1 hour trying to find out where to access it.

On my desktop there is "My Vault" icon. When clicked takes me to online vault.

In win search there is no local vault.

I really think that the dev's should make it easier to find the local vault on a Win 8 setup.

Any ideas???

From any browser with the extension installed, go to LastPass button -> My LastPass Vault.

That is the online vault. I need access to my local vault so I can move folders around.

I can assure you it's the local vault. What makes you think otherwise?

I can't move a folder to be a sub folder of another folder. I read somewhere that you can only do this on your local vault not your online vault. That's why I figure it's an online vault.

Also does the local vault open in an online browser?

Finally, I had the free version and upgraded to premium, how do I now move "groups" and share them, since in Free version it seems groups are folders.

Are you trying to drag a folder into another folder? What browser are you using?

Yes, the local vault opens as a browser tab.

Groups and folders are the same thing. Premium doesn't include shared folders. That's an enterprise feature.

Using Chrome, latest version.
1) Using enterprise.
2) Is there any way to work offline with this tool?

It appears folders can't be dragged into other folders on any vault. However, you can create a new folder first, then select multiple sites and drag them in.

If you're offline, you should be able to login to the browser extension and access your sites, as long as you've done so at least once in the past. As for making changes, however, this isn't recommended, since the changes need to be synchronized with our servers. If you make changes while offline, we do add them to a retry file and try to contact the server again later, but I wouldn't recommend relying on that, since your retry file could be blown away, etc.

How come folders cannot be moved? Surely you're not asking me to redo my entire folder structure? Almost every OS and app that I've used always allow folders to be dragged...surely lastpass is not the first one that doesn't allow this? Maybe I've misunderstood this, somehow...
