problems saving with recovered Scrivener project

My computer was recently stolen. I backed up using MOZY remote back up and I have all my old data on a new computer. I can open my scrivener files (my dissertation!) and I changed the permissions to read/write (not just read-only) but now it has completely stopped saving, even when I manually save. Thoughts? Please help!

Assuming project name is disertation.scriv and live in your Documents directory…

Open a terminal session and try the following:

cd Documents
sudo chown -R `whoami` disertation.scriv
chmod -R +w disertation.scriv

See if that helps.
