I upgraded to version 3 from 2 a while ago. This morning I attempted to open earlier versions of my book on verson 3 and I get the following message:
The project “name.scriv” uses an older file format and cannot be opened. Would you like to update it? A copy of the old project will be saved in the same directory.
I click Yes and then get this error:
The document “name.scriv” could not be opened.
The update has been cancelled because there was an error when trying to create a backup of the project. Please check that there is sufficient space on your hard drive.
There is plenty of space on my drive.
I tried moving the file to another folder on my computer and then got this error:
The operation can’t be completed because one or more required items can’t be found.
(Error code -43)
So, I download version 2 of Scrivener and tried opening the files. They opened fine. But then when I tried to save it, I got this error:
The project ‘name.scriv’ could not be saved to ‘/Users/marcbook/Desktop/name.scriv’.
There was a problem saving a copy of the project. Check that you have enough free disk space and the correct permissions to save to the chosen location. Files that could be recovered have been saved to /Users/marcbook/Documents/name.scriv Recovered. The project will now close.
I am currently storing the files on Google Drive. Perhaps that’s the issue? It’s never been a problem in the past. Thanks for the help!
