Saving your EndNote library to an online cloud service such as Dropbox sounds like a great idea doesn’t it? You could then open it up and use it from virtually anywhere. According to our wonderful trainers at EndNote this is quite a terrible idea. Apparently, storing your library on a remote server will eventually corrupt your library to the point where it will not longer be useful. Here ‘s a quick explanation as to why this happens. When saving data to your library it is saved in a set sequence. When the data is subsequently transferred through the internet, it can arrive out of sequence. This is what leads to the corruption of your library. It may actually appear to function correctly for a period of time but gradually it the corruption will increase over time and you will begin to have problems. It can end very badly where your library may not even function properly.
Our trainer suggests that it can be kept on a cloud service as a zipped file but should be moved or copied to your local hard drive before unzipping it (or decompressing it) and using it.
The safest way to keep your references on multiple computers is to use the EndNote Sync with the EndNote online (formerly EndNote Web) product.
Here is a link to a micro-class recording showing how to use EndNote Sync across multiple computers.
Have a nice weekend all!
