Have lost my novel

I’m panicking. I was using Scrivener when suddenly a window popped up called Scrivener Scratch Pad. It wouldn’t close, whatever I tried. Eventually I restarted my computer and now all I can find from my novel is the character notes. Everything else seems to have disappeared. The left hand side bar with all the files and documents is gone. I’m a technophobe, and have no idea what to do. When I went to Dropbox, it wouldn’t give me access to the project. Please, please can anyone help?

OH, phew, sorry, I found it!

Worst six minutes of your entire life?

Glad you found it!
