Hi - I’m just checking I’m doing things in the way which makes my files most secure. I have a new computer and I’ve redownloaded Scrivener and opened my projects from my zipped Dropbox files. I have used Tools/Options/Backup to rechange the default back up to Dropbox again. But will this mean that I don’t have a local back up - ie stored on my new computer - just in case Dropbox should fail too?!
The way I transferred my projects was to make a folder within my local Documents folder called ‘Scrivener Projects’ and then downloaded the zipped files to there and unzipped them there. I then opened the projects from the Scrivx file that was in there. When I work on projects I tend to open up Scrivener and then select the file from the recent tab rather than opening it from a folder.
So my questions are: Should I be opening from a folder each time or is it OK just to open up Scrivener and work from the File: Recent Projects option? And then is Scrivener, as well as backing up to Dropbox, downloading a back up to the ‘Scrivener Projects’ folder on my local Documents on my computer. If so- where is this? I can’t see it.
