Encountered this on first backup, and then looked around a bit, on Win7 as always, and may matter here.
Backup Project To now offers a dropdown. However:
The default location offered is C:\Program Files\Scrivener. Well, it’s not where any file writing should go, and in fact on Win7 you are securely prevented from ever writing there. Possibly Vista auch.
The last location offered is Home. I wondered where Home might be, so I tried it. Well, the C:/Users folder. Another place that shouldn’t be on the menu, probably.
The Documents offer does work, and puts the backup in the current user’s My Documents, as should be expected. I just wonder if it always would depending on what you have your Win7 Documents library to include, alphamerically. Maybe a My Documents is safer, also clearer?
I tried browsing to choose a unique folder not on offer. This worked fine as far as the Backup save, but the chosen location wasn’t on the list when I went back to try it again. Hearts and minds would applaud if it were, probably at top of list; and saved with the project for next time too.
Desktop choice works, and feels appropriate to have in the Scrivener-does-what-u-could-want mode of thinking, particularly for writers in a hurry.
Best, and always quietly applauding as well as enjoying,
