moving my storage

Hello everyone,

This is my first post, so apologies if the topic has already been addressed.
I need to format my computer (Mac OS Catalina) to factory settings. This will involve saving a backup of my whole zotero storage to an external drive. I would like then to restore all my pdf files (which I manage through zotero) without having to manually import them one by one in zotero once it is re-installed. In the past I tried simply moving the whole storage folder, but it did not work, and I actually had to do it manually.

Is there a smarter way to do this?
