Get my WIP on new laptop

My old laptop kept shutting off randomly, so I now have a new one. I’d like to get the work in progress on scrivner from the old laptop to the new one. I tried transferring it to a thumb drive, but the files messed up. I have tried dropbox but the file doesn’t load the new information. Any ideas? I am somewhat computer knowledgeable but not as savvy as some. Any help appreciated. I have not downloaded scrivner to the new computer yet. Thanks

If you copy the complete scriv project folder nothing should get messed up.

The following is for macOS, but it should be similar for Windows (i.e. use a zip to collate the project into a single entity and then transfer).
