overwritten .sqlite file

I updated my mac to big sur os and when I first open zotero I got an empty library. So I go to my local directory and the .sqlite file says that it has been created the moment I opened the app. How can I recover my old file?

I didn't have an account and my last manual backup is from two weeks ago...
  • An empty library usually happens when someone accidentally deletes their Zotero data while trying to clear disk space using some external tool — e.g., the built-in macOS disk-cleaning tool.

    See Locating Missing Zotero Data. Assuming you deleted the files by mistake, your only option would be to restore from a backup.
