We report the rare occurrence of a reversible loss of crystallinity upon dehydration and regain upon rehydration by in situ X-ray diffraction on a single crystal of [Mn<SUP>II</SUP>(enH)(H<SUB>2</SUB>O)][Cr<SUP>III</SUP>(CN)<SUB>6</SUB>]·H<SUB>2</SUB>O and the associated thermal and magnetic properties characterized by an increase of the Curie temperature of the soft ferrimagnet from 42 to 75 K.
