open back-up

I’m trying to open my project that is backed up to dropbox ,I’m getting an error that say “not writable.access deniede auto save needs write permission for the project”. anyone know about this and how to enable it???

Your backups are probably stored as zipped archives, which are read-only, so you’ll need to extract a copy of the project before you can open it in Scrivener. To do this, either right-click the zipped folder and choose “Extract All” or double-click the folder and then drag out the .scriv folder to another location (such as your Documents folder or whatever folder you keep your Scrivener projects in). You can then open the project in Scrivener as normal.

Thank you, that worked …Thanks for the info, and the speed of reply
