I want to reinstall my system so I would have fresh Mac OS X. Is there a way how can I export/backup all content of my Keychain Access (all certificates and other things) and then after reinstall to import it back? Thanks

  1. Save the content of the keychain folder /Users/[UserName]/Library/Keychains on an external drive or in the cloud.

  2. After the reinstall, replace the contents of /Users/[UserName]/Library/Keychains with the data you saved in step 1.

  3. You may need to do a reboot, for all changes to go into effect.

(Some of your keys may already be saved in iCloud through iCloud Keychain)
