While EndNote does not recommend saving EndNote libraries onto Cloud-based storage systems (i..e, Tufts Box, DropBox, Google Drive), it can be done by following the steps below:
Go onto Box and upload the saved .enlx file. Then download the .enlx file from Box onto your desktop, EndNote will automatically open the library up.
Don't try to upload the .enl file and the .data folder associated with your library, as the library will become corrupted.
**Important note regarding EndNote versions x9.3 and higher**
Compressed libraries created with EndNote version x9.3 and higher can only be opened with EndNote version x9.3 and higher. To share libraries created with EndNote version x9.3 and higher with others who use lower versions of EndNote, follow the instructions below for "Sharing with Other EndNote Users."
There are several ways to share EndNote libraries. Please follow the instructions for the sharing scenario that fits your situation.
