Error on syncing: ..file already exists...


Upon syncing, I get an error message (consistently):

Component returned failure code: 0x80520008 (NS_ERROR_FILE_ALREADY_EXISTS) [nsIFile.create]

Error report: 1553243739

What can I do ?

  • Do you have your Zotero data directory (or the 'storage' directory within it) symlinked somewhere?
  • There are actually a whole bunch of different errors in there, so I'd guess that, possibly among other things, there's security software on your system (SELinux, AppArmor) that's interfering with Zotero file syncing.
