If you have a previous installation of EndNote and the EndNote installer finds it in the same folder, you will be given the option to either back up or overwrite the older files. If you back up files, they are placed in a Backup folder in the installation folder.
It is also recommended to save a copy to a different drive on your computer or external hard drive e.g USB
1. Select File > Save a Copy
2. Save the backup copy to a different drive - this will help ensure that you can use the backup if your main Library gets corrupted or your computer breaks
3. Leave ‘Copy’ or type ‘Backup’ on the end of the file name
