Error message when opening Scrivener


I’ve started getting an error message when opening a brand new project in Scrivener about recovered files. It doesn’t happen when I’m opening an empty project just one of the format options. I’ve cut and pasted below

[i]Recovered files

While the project was opening, files were detected within the project package that do not exist in the binder. This may have been caused by a permissions conflict, in which the file system refused the deletion of files from inside the .scriv package that had been deleted from the project binder, or by synchronization between different versions of the project.

The recovered files can be found in the “_Recovered Files” folder at the bottom of the binder.

Scrivener attempts to recover such files whenever a project is opened. To disable this behaviour for a project, hold down the Option key while the project is opening. If file recovery is disabled, holding down the Option key on open will re-enable it.[/i]

Is this happening to anyone else?

To everyone - it’s harmless and will be fixed in 1.54 (out in the next few days). Please see:

Hope that helps.
All the best,
