I just updated to Scrivener 3, and all of my projects are gone! HELP.

I lost three epic novels and several short stories with the update. Everything’s gone. This represents years of work. Please tell me they are still on my computer somewhere. I am beside myself right now.


They are not “gone.” They are still right where you left them. They just don’t show in Scrivener 3’s Recent Projects menu because Scrivener 3 hasn’t opened them yet.

You can locate all projects on your computer by searching for .scriv files.

First, though, I’d recommend taking a look at our upgrade guide for Scrivener 2 users, as Scrivener 3 has some very significant changes. You can find it here:

Phew. Thank you, Katherine. I was hoping someone would help me find them. And I will definitely check out the new features.
