I was reading an eBook form my research library which wille xpire in 3 days. I highlited some text and I made some notes. All of a sudden the program crashed when I tried to copy the name of a book in a footnote. I couldn't find the programme nor would the file open anymore. When trying to open the file it would send me to the Adobe website. So I downloaded the installer again and when trying to install I got a message that the previous version needed to be fixed. Adobe Digital Editions was fixed, I could open the book but my notes are gone.

Does this happen often? Is there a way to recover the notes?

System: Windows 8.

To be honest i am weary of using your software at all again. I think I will read it online form my library and copy every higlight immediately. It is nice that I can access books immediately but if this thing is going to crash whenever I prefer to wait one or two days to get the physical book.

If the notes are saved before the crash, it will be in C:\Users\<USERNAME>\Documents\My Digital Editions\Annotations\<BOOKNAME>.epub.annot

Hi,

In that case, can I transfer my notes [using the .annot files] into a different [authorized] computer.

Basically, I switch between my two computers quite often and want to make sure I have the notes/highlights synched for my purchased book.

Possible? Alternate solution?

Thanks.
