Find what's taking up storage space in my online account

  • How do I find what's taking up space in my account's Zotero online storage?
    (I'm looking for some sort of file explorer where I can sort file sizes.)
    I'm wanting to get rid of large files.
    Thanks.

    You can just use your OS to search for large files within the 'storage' folder of your Zotero data directory. If you want to delete something, paste the 8-character parent folder name into the Zotero search bar in All Fields & Tags mode, delete the attachment that shows up, and empty the trash.
  • @dstillman : Ok, thanks for moving topic.
    I must be misunderstanding something.
    Is everything I store locally also stored in my 2GB online storage account I pay for?
    Is there a way to store locally and only have Zotero online point to my local copies?
    Thank you.

  • If you don't care about accessing your files online, you can just disable file syncing from the Sync preferences.
