After getting a new Windows 8 computer, I tried to restore the Scrivener project that my old dying computer automatically zipped and saved to Dropbox.
After unzipping the file I double clicked on the project.scrivx file.
The system reported:
Cannot access … project.scrivx
File is not writable. Access is denied.
Auto-saves need write permission to your project.
I right clicked and chose properties. There was no way to change the Read Only property.
Would it help if I went back to the old computer and simply moved the whole project into Dropbox? Or would I wind up with a similar problem when trying to open the project on my new computer?
