1. Open your EndNote Desktop library.
2. Go to File > Compress/ed Library (.enlx). Leave the options as they are: Create, With File Attachments, All References in Library.
3. Press Next, specify where you would like to save the file (should be the same location as your .enl file and .data folder), and press Save.
4. You have now created a new compressed EndNote Library (.enlx).
If your regular EndNote library file (.enl) ever becomes corrupt (e.g. not opening, references are missing, not working properly with MS Word or Pages):
1. Ensure your corrupt .enl file is closed. Open your compressed EndNote library (.enlx).
2. This will then ask you to create a new EndNote library file (.enl) , which will contain all the references and attachments (e.g. PDFs) from your compressed file (.enlx) .
3. When asked to save this new .enl file, leave the filename as is (do NOT change it), and save the file in the SAME location as your corrupt .enl file. Do NOT create another instance of the .enl file. Instead, REPLACE the corrupt .enl file with the new .enl file.
