Synching to Dropbox

I had problems synching via a webDAV to a cloud university, so I relocated my zotero directory to my Dropbox folder. Now, when I try to synch Zotero, I get an error message:

"Component returned failure code: 0x80520006 (NS_ERROR_FILE_TARGET_DOES_NOT_EXIST) [nsIFile.normalize]"

This is the full log:

  • move your Zotero folder out of Dropbox. What you're seeing right now is likely still harmless and will stop once that's done, but you can permanently and irretrievably damage your database by placing your Zotero data directory into Dropbox.

    Find a WebDav that works or use Zotero Storage.
