    Hi Weasel,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.

    Do you still have access to your old mac? This KB-article explains how to backup keys or your entire .gnupg folder. It also explains how to transfer keys from one mac to a second mac if you want to use the same keys on more than a single machine.

    Let me know if you have more questions or need further assistance after going through that KB.

    All the best,
    Steve
