Can't open standalone Zotero

When I try to open standalone Zotero on my Mac, I am now getting a message that says: "There was an error starting Zotero. Error(s) encountered during statement execution: database disk image is malformed...". The only thing I have changed recently was through a reset of my keychain password. Any advice about how to fix this problem? Thanks.
  • That means your Zotero database is corrupt, which usually happens from putting your Zotero data directory in a cloud storage folder such as Dropbox (which Zotero warns you about), Google Drive, or similar.

    If you have your data directory in such a folder, move it out.

    To repair your database, you can try the DB Repair Tool.
  • My data directory is not in a cloud storage folder, and has not been moved recently. So could it become corrupt through another means?
  • That worked, thanks!
