add UI option in preferences to move keyring to USB drive

Reported by steve | June 9th, 2014 @ 04:43 PM

Users keep hitting brick walls while trying to move their keyring to a USB drive.

We should solve this in the GPG Keychain Access preferneces with a nice UI option.

First draft:

  • Expert option (use only if you know what you are doing!) add button "Move Keyring to USB drive"
  • user presses button
  • up comes finder selection window offering a selection of external drives
  • select drive
  • GPG Keychain Access automatically moves keyring and creates symlinks
  • once done, notify user that keyring now resides on drive:MyUSBKeyring and is no longer located on the local machine

This should be solved in the same panel.

For the time being the following KB-article covers how to get this done:
