Mine is greyed too, so I don't know how to export them. However, I'm assuming backup programs do.
Some people know I distinguish 'backups' from 'archives'. 'Archives' are for information I'll want in the future: I write two copies to optical discs, then delete them from my drive. 'Backups' are for keychains, cookies, &c.
I may use Apple's 'Backup', for it leaves a copy on my iDisk as well as LaCie key; but I've downloaded iBackup, and my target drive, a LaCie key, should be arriving today. This keeps the really critical data off site.
A backup & restore might work.
I read really a lot about exporting passwords from Keychain. It seems the following link solved the problem to some people: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=1163575�
but it does not work for me. I got some error and the program aborted.
No other solution on the web proposed by anyone!
Is it so difficult to retrieve my data from keychain? I need to write all password information to a clear text file. This would really help me in my job (often around, sometimes without my Mac, using other computers, I need a way to carry my passwords with me)
