Backups for Word Documents
Citavi automatically creates backups of Word documents created with the Citavi Word Add-In. These backups are saved in the same folder the Citavi project backups are saved in. In the folder for a project, you'll find a file with the .bak extension. This is an XML file containing all the references cited in your Word file.
Restoring a Word File from a Backup
- Switch to the folder where your backups are saved. By default this folder is Documents\Citavi 6\Backup.
- Switch to the folder that has the same name as the project.
- Switch to the folder with the name of the Word document you created with Citavi's Word Add-In.
- You will see your most recent backups. The file name contains [Citavi Backup] and the date when the backup was created. Double-click a backup to open it.
