Using Zotero: Storage and Backup

How much space do I get?

Your Zotero account comes with 300 MB of free storage. This storage is used for PDFs, images, and any other Zotero files on all of your devices.

Premium plans for additional storage are available.

Backing up your library

Syncing your library is not the same as saving a backup.

Your Zotero information is stored on your computer, so if you perform regular backups you should be able to access a version of your library if necessary. It is also possible to locate your Zotero information and save it to an external device. Instructions are available on the Zotero support page.
