cannote delete references & library recovering not working for one particular endnote library


Using X5.0.1 bld 5774 on windows 7.

I used endnote a lot.

one endnote library does not allow me to delete references in the main library windown. So I can’t deduplicate.

I tried recovering the library and it did not create a new file (see attached image).

Please do you have any ideas of how to solve / avoid this problem, and why it has occurred?

Hello, Thomas:

I’m very sorry to hear you’re having this trouble!

This means that there is damage in the library that is beyond EndNote’s ability to repair. I recommend opening a ticket so that we can attempt the repair process here at our support desk:
