I am returning to study after mat leave and cleaned out my USB study folder. I have a new computer so my only copy of my endnote .data file is on the usb. I saw two endnote files and deleted the oldest one (.data), not realising endnote has two components to it. I only have the .enl file on the USB.
Panicing I found the ease usdata recovery tool and downloaded it
I saved both the .data and .enl files to my new computer desktop but when i try to open the endnote lib it says “Are you sure you would ike to open the Endnote Library… without the associated .data folder. you are attempting to open an endnote library without its associated .data folder. this is not recommented because it may result in the loss of data including, but not limited to: reference information, file attachments, and term lists. in order to prevent the loss of data you should locate the original .data folder and copy it the the same location as the endnote library you are attempting to open. the .data folder was created in the same directory in which the endnote library was originally created”
The problem is i dont have the original .data file only the recovered one.
can you please help me to:
a) give instructions on how to get it to open together
b) I havent touched my usb stick so if you know of a better data restoring program which works with endnote so i can download it and try to restore the .data file with .enl file again
