The best way to back up your EndNote library is to use the 'Compressed Library' function.
When you compress a library with file attachments (the default method), EndNote will include the .DATA folder which contains the various files connected to your library, such as PDFs, groups etc.
To use the Compress Library function, select 'File' from the top menu bar, then 'Compressed Library (.enlx)...'. Select from the various options, then select 'Next' and save in a location of your choosing.
