Zotero cannot access login info

Report ID: 1617287985

My computer recently died, and the data had to be transferred to a new hard drive.

My Zotero data seems to have been preserved, but when I open the application, I get the Error message below--and I cannot follow the instructions because those files do not seem to exist on my computer.

I would reinstall Zotero, but my computer apparently last synced to Zotero.org a year ago--I'm not sure why--and I am concerned that I would lose the more recent Zotero data on my hard drive.

Error Message:

Zotero cannot access your login information, possibly due to a corrupted Zotero logins database.

Close Zotero, remove cert8.db, key3.db, and logins.json from your Zotero profile directory, and re-enter your Zotero login information in the Sync pane of the Zotero preferences.
