Error while trying to export library

edited 6 days ago
I would like to export my whole library including files or into Endnote XML, RIS or BibTeX.
Each time I get back the following error-message: "An error occurred while trying to export the selected file."
I have already disabled all extensions and I restored translators without exit.
Report ID: 1627012431
I use standalone Zotero updated on Mac.
Any suggestions how to export my library with files?
Thanks!
PS: I don't get the error message if choose export without files.


  • It looks like you ended up with some Windows UNC network paths (beginning with "\\") for files in your library, all added years ago. I'm not sure it's even possible to create these in the current version, but they were breaking exports on macOS. You can view the error report to see one of the paths in question.

    I've fixed this in the latest Zotero beta, so you can temporarily switch to that to perform the export. The fix will be included in 5.0.61.
