When opening Keychain Access I have a bunch of empty keychains named 1 as well as the normal login keychain. These cannot be deleted.

Empty Keychains

What are they and what are they for? How do I get rid of them? (Should I?)

This question has not received enough attention.

  • Do these keychain files also appear in your ~/Library/Keychains folder? – Tim Campbell yesterday
  • Which macOS are you using? If >10.11 than you can use 'Keychain First Aid', which (unfortunatly) has been removed in later macOS Versions – J.C. 19 hours ago
  • What msg do you encounter when you attempt to delete these? – slm 24 mins ago
