Hello !
I'm searching for a way to do what it is saying here :

I crated a symlink using "ln -s" but keychain doesn't work after this.
How can I move my PGP informations to a volume ? I'm on Mojave 10.14.3.
Thank you !

    Hi Spinoza,

    could you please post the output of:

        ls -l@Od ~/.gnupg

    What exact error are you seeing?

    Hi !
    Thank you, actually it's working well now,
    my error was to make a symlink of all the .gpupg folder,
    and we must make the symlink only of the "private-keys-v1.d" folder inside,
    It seems that other files inside the .gnupg folder are not "privacy sensible", I would be happy if you can confirm that.

    That is true, the private-keys-v1.d folder contains your secret keys. In addition you could also symlink the pubkeys.gpg or pubkeys.kbx files which contain your public keys.
