How do I recover a deleted folder?

By accident I hit the delete symbol next to the add a document button. POOF! A whole folder of my latest work went somewhere into electronic neverwhere. My backup server has been glitchy, so I cannot recover it from there.

Isn’t there someway I can find my work? It is not in the Trash folder on Scrivener, nor in my computer Trash folder. Where can I look?


Hi Betty,

The delete (“Trash”) button in Scrivener’s toolbar just moves any selected documents to the project’s Trash folder. When you say there’s nothing in the Trash folder, have you tried expanding it by clicking on the little disclosure triangle next to it which reveals its contents? Sorry for the basic question, but from your description, that is where it should be - unless you have emptied the trash since, of course.

All th best,
