    I did manage to or I managed to

    The topic says it all.

    Which one is correct? Can I use both?

    I did manage to find some evidence...

    Re: I did manage to or I managed to

    They're both acceptable. The first might be used if you wanted to emphasise your success in finding some evidence or to negate a suggestion that you did not find any evidence.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
