What issue do you have?

Very often, I've been getting a Keychain Not found Error.
" A keychain cannot be found to store "[a-f0-9]{32}@joplin"
This error pops up on my screen and it prompts me to either cancel and Reset To Default. When I select the option to Reset to default and it gives me a warning saying it will delete all my save passwords, key and certs -- out of desperation, I opted to proceed with the rest and after I supply it with keychain password, moments later, it comes back. This happens frequently every few minutes making it unusable.

Here is the corresponding error message from log.txt

Is that the exact error message or is there an actual string before @joplin?

Does it still happen if you disable the Backup plugin?

And do you use a password for the Backup plugin?

Thanks Laurent, I didn't type the exact text but it was 32 characters long followed by @joplin. Since I posted the query, I rebooted my macbook and that seems to have cleared the issue. I must confess I did delete few entries from keychain related to another application (Microsoft) to resolve an issue but that might have contributed to the instability.

I will watch this today and see if the issue surfaces again but so far it looks promising. thanks again.
