Create Backups

To create a compressed (backup) library:

  1. From the File menu, select Compress Library (.enlx).
  2. Specify the parameters for your compressed library (with or without file attachments; whole or partial library, etc).
  3. Click Next and select the destination where you wish to save your compressed library.

Tip: Like searching for and discarding duplicates, regular backups of your library should be made (and stored in a safe location). These may be stored on a cloud-based drive, if needs be. However, you should move these files back to a hard drive on your computer, before attempting to open them and extract the compressed contents within.
