Changed storage location, now Zotero sees nothing

I'm on a Mac, OS 10.5. To make backups easier, I changed the storage directory to something much less complicated and deeply buried. Then I restarted Firefox, but Zotero isn't seeing my database. Is there some other step I need to take to make Zotero aware of where the database now lives? Or was it a bad idea to make this change in the first place? Do I need to change it back? Thanks for any help.
  • In the preferences pane you are just changing where Zotero looks for its directory, not the location of the directory itself. So you need to find the Zotero folder and move it to its new location.
  • Ah! Brilliant, Tjowens, many thanks for your prompt and precise reply.
