    Hey dmcdermottemail,

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

    This KB-article explains how to backup 1. a single key 2. all your keys or 3. your entire .gnupg folder.

    So backup all your keys and transfer them over to your new machine where you can import them.

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

    Best, steve
