Scrivener has completely bailed on me today. I last saved new work yesterday, but it is showing no modifications to the project since July 1. I cannot open the project in the Scrivener folder because “you don’t have permission to open this file.” Nothing has changed on my computer since I last opened the software. I had two projects open yesterday – one of them is backed up, the other is not showing any new backups since July 1. I am able to open the unopenable project through Dropbox (dropbox shows the last modification being yesterday) however when it opens, the only thing that shows up is the Binder. Chapter titles, notes, ect are showing as existing in the Binder, but when I click on individual chapters and notes there is nothing there. It shows word count as zero. I have logged off and on, uninstalled and reinstalled both Dropbox and Scrivener…nothing.
This is very distressing. I have previously used Google Drive as a third back up option along with Scrivener and Dropbox, but due to issues pasting from Drive into Scrivener, yesterday I deleted the Drive copies. I now have no novel.
Please tell me there is something I can do. I searched the forum briefly before posting but I didn’t see anything similar. I apologize in advance if this is something common.
