Zotero has stored my PDF files in a wide variety of subfolders, and I would like to consolidate them. Some are stored directly in the "Zotero" library folder (I'm using a Mac, so it's /Users/[username]/Zotero). (Many) Other files are saved in Zotero>storage>[random numbers and letters], for example in subfolders called "2RZ8L9YV" or "SD2ZP5A5". I want to move all the PDFs out of the subfolders and into the main "Zotero" folder without breaking the link within Zotero (i.e. so I don't have to relocate each files the first time I want to use it again in Zotero). The directory settings for Zotero and Zotfile are for the main folder, not any subfolders.
If there is no way to automate this consolidation while retaining the links to the files in Zotero, can anyone at least explain to me why some files but not others are placed in these randomly-named subfolders?
Apologies if this concern has already been addressed elsewhere. I searched and couldn't find an answer to this specific question.
