New Computer - Windows 11 - Scrivener Files Won't Open

I got a new desktop computer today that uses Windows 11. I installed Scrivener and made sure all of the apps on the computer were up to date. None of my large Scrivener files are opening. The computer just hangs and doesn’t respond.

How did the Scrivener files get on the computer? If a sync service check to see that you have that service set to keep files offline on the computer and not downloaded on demand. All Scrivener files have to be local.

Well this is frustrating – I had selected the Scriv folder in my Dropbox as a Local storage, but it didn’t download the files. I didn’t even think to look at that! Waiting on the sync to finish now, but thank you for giving me something to look for. Appreciate the quick reply!
