My macbook is presently completely unusable due to an apparently corrupted (?) keychain. As shown in the following question there seems to have been a change in 10.11.2 to have removed the First Aid

My login keychain cannot be found. I have Keychain access but no Keychain repair option. OS X El Capitan

So then what are my options? Throw the thing away?? No really - throwing away the keychain and all the passwords is a terrible option. If I have to do .. that .. then there better be a way to back up after I lose so much more time on starting the keychain from scratch.

  • Time Machine backs up keychains, once an hour/week/month until you run out of disk space.
