"Locate" button doesn't open file browser

edited 8 days ago

I'm running Zotero Standalone with Zotfile. I have a custom directory where I let Zotfile store my attachments. I migrated computers and when I try to open attachments (that I know exist and can find in the File Explorer), I get the "File Not Found" popup. When I click "Locate..." the pop-up disappears but nothing else happens. On the old computer, this usually opened a file browsing window and I was able to navigate to the file to select it.

Any thoughts on what the problem might be and how to fix this?

  • I don't know why Locate doesn't work but you also should not fix these individually anyway.
    Use Zutilo to check where Zotero is currently looking for the files and then fix that location in bulk:

    Afterwards you'll want to set up relative links in the advanced tab in Zotero.
  • Thank you for this.
