Old files will not update

Scrivener 2 will not update all my older files.
I was able to update a few of them, but the rest will not. It makes a backup copy, but then it continues ‘updating’ endlessly.
I have tried 3 times with one file and have ended up with 3 backkups, but no file that can be opened.
Has anyone else had this problem? I wasn’t able to find a solution in this forum.


Try the beta available here:


This has made some fixes to the update process (make sure you update the oldest backup of the file and not one of the files that have failed to update). If that doesn’t work, could you please send a file with this problem to kb-tech-support AT literatureandlatte DOT com?

Thanks and all the best,

Thank you - that seems to have fixed it!

Great - glad it worked!
