    "Even so" or "Even than"

    What is the difference between "Even so" and "Even than"?
    I'd like to right the following sentence.
    The files were missing, even so I could study and learn how to use the program.
    I don't know if is either one of these two options.

    Thank u

    'Even so' means 'even though that is/was the case' so your sentence is correct with 'even so'. 'Even than' doesn't mean anything.

    He means "Even then." Even so applies to a state, even then to a time.
