I had a weird thing happen and lost a few paragraphs by mistake. When I went to open a backup to copy the missing bits, I got this message:
The file…"seems to be of an older format, but no binder.scrivproj file could be found inside it. It may be missing or corrupt, possibly because of a problem with the device on which it is stored, or because of a synchronisation problem.
Try ctrl-clicking on the project in the Finder and selecting “Show Package Contents”, then look for a file entitled ‘binder.scrivproj’. Ensure it has not been renamed by a backup routine. If it does not exist, try restoring from a backup."
When I ctrl-click in the Finder, “Show Package Contents” is not one of the options. I’ve worked on the same computer with the same version of Scrivener.
I do have the current copy of the document, and the missing bits are not the end of the world, but not having openable backups is!
So my question is, what do I need to do for my backup system to work properly? And is emailing myself a copy of the document not a useful way to backup versions?
