Quick FAQ

Should I upgrade?

We recommend you always have the latest version, so follow the links in EndNote when prompted to upgrade. If you're using an RCH computer you'll need to contact IT to get the upgrade installed.

Can I upgrade on top of my previous version?

You should uninstall previous versions before a major upgrade (e.g. from X9 to 20 or 21), but it's not necessary for a minor upgrade (e.g. from 20.1 to 20.2). Always back up your library before a major upgrade.

Will I lose my library if I upgrade?

No, but it's always a good idea to back it up first.

Can I keep my library in the cloud?

Never keep your working library in a location that syncs to any type of cloud service, including iCloud, Dropbox, OneDrive etc. Nor should you run it from a USB drive, or a network drive. It is, however, safe to store a backup of your library in any of these locations. More info here.
