Is it possible to retrieve library data from lost computer not previously synced?

I don't have access anymore to the laptop where I originally downloaded Zotero. On that computer, I had built a whole library without creating an account and activating syncing, as I was not aware at the time that it was an option.

Is there a way to retrieve the library data from the original computer even if it was not synced?
  • Only if you have a backup that you can restore from. Otherwise, if you didn't sync, the data by definition didn't leave that computer.
  • Thank you. And there is no way to retrieve even portions of it via the google chrome plug in?
  • No. Zotero stores data on your computer. If you don't sync it and don't back it up, it only exists on that computer.
  • Ok, thank you.
