OSX Login Keychain was corrupted …

So yesterday I restarted my MacBook after some weeks and when trying to log back in, my system mourned that the password I entered was wrong, so it was not able to unlock my keychain, even though I was able to login to my desktop. Hmm I had changed my password like I always do sporadically in the past week, so I typed the old pw and the new pw, triple checked everything I typed, checked CapsLock etc. I was sure everything was correct, so I concluded that my Users login Keychain was corrupted.

I ended up renaming ~/Library/Keychains/login.keychain to ~/Library/Keychains/login.keychain.OLD and then restored a version from 2 weeks ago from one of my TimeMachine backups. Logged out – Logged in and everything works perfectly again.

TimeMachine saved the day 🙂
