How can I know if my library sync?

Hello,

I thought Zotero syncs automatically with my OneDrive, but I now see in my OneDrive Zotero folder that the last file is from 2019... how can I make sure my library is safe outside my computer? (in case it gets ruined)

Thanks in advance

    I'm not sure what kind of syncing you're referring to here. Zotero doesn't know anything about OneDrive, and your data directory absolutely can't be in a cloud storage folder.

    You can use Zotero syncing — which wouldn't have anything to do with OneDrive — to sync your data with Zotero servers, which can help you make sure you have it if something happens to your computer.

    And you should always have a backup of your entire computer, which would include Zotero data and all other important data. If you don't want to do that, you can make sure you always have a backup of your Zotero data directory, which could be in OneDrive, but you can't store the active data directory itself in OneDrive.
