Could not open connection to database on external disk

This discussion was created from comments split from: Can I put my Zotero library on a USB drive.
  • I use the external disk as the choose result, and it runs well until an exception occured as follows, when I was restarting my zotero:
    Error: Could not open connection to J:\2021Research\data\zotero.sqlite: 2147500037
    From previous event:
    Anyone with the same problem?

    That's a generic error for when Zotero can't access the database. Any debugging steps would be specific to your particular system and setup — could be something about the disk, the filesystem, the OS, permissions, security software. The only thing we can really say is that, if you can't get it to work, you'd need to move the data directory back to the local disk.
