Uncompressed Libraries appearing as 0kb in size

We’ve noticed that some X5 EndNote Libraries that have been compressed and then uncompressed are appearing as containing only 0kb - why is this? They still seem to contain the expected references/groups, but this seems odd!


This is the expected behavior. The .enl file contains backup information for the .Data folder. It is the .Data folder that contains the important library information. When you compress the library and then uncompress it, a 0 KB .enl file is generated. Once the library is modified and closed the size of the file will increase with the backup information.
