Seemingly, I’m not able to open/locate/find my “project” on the Scrivener Laptop computer since 30 December 2022. For about a few months, since I was not able to work on my project on the “live Scrivener” site, I had opened my backup folder and was working/writing there. (IS THAT A GOOD IDEA; IF NOT, HOW CAN I KEEP MY SCRIVENER 1, UPTO DATE TO SCRIVENER 3, AND WORK ON MY PROJECT THERE – SINCE, THE PROJECT I WAS WORKING ON, I’M NOT ABLE TO “SEE” MY CURRENT PROJECT THERE, BY CLICKING THE “RECENT PROJECT” – ONLY DIFFERENT PROJECTS.
After opening Scrivener on Windows 10, I would go to “Tools” >> “Options” >> “Backup” >> “Choose” >> “Open Backup Folder”: still, I can’t find the project either on the Scrivener itself or the Dropbox folder!
I have tried all the methods of trying to relocate my file, but once, on 31 December 2022, when I had again found it and had backed it up again, I’m not able to find the project-file again. I should state that I’m not that computer & technological savvy – so, you may have to not only guide me into relocating my “apparent” lost project but send me all the pertinent information and video-links for this and related problems. AND, WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO BACKUP A PROJECT, FIND THE “LOST” PROJECT & ONCE AGAIN, WRITE ON THE “LIVE” PROJECT (I hadn’t known what “live” project meant until I faced this particular issue)?
Indeed, Scrivener automatically saves the information, every two seconds or so but, as notably guided by Scrivener, does one CLICK save, save as, backup now or back to in order to save to documents, dropbox and external hard drive? Again, by doing so, do the files get overwritten and is that the reason as to why I have not been able to find my, probable, lost project? Again, although there is information on the Internet as to how to save to an external hard drive, so far, I haven’t come across one – giving the step by step information as to how to do that.
Expecting that someone will fruitfully guide me,
Namaskar and Stay Well,

P.S. Thank you in advance for helping me and hope that the answer will help other Scrivener Users, too.
