I’ve been using Scrivener for a number of years, but only recently installed it on my Windows 8.1 Surface Pro tablet. I’ve also only recently started storing my original .scriv file directly in my Onedrive/Skydrive folder.
I discovered today that a number of novel scenes I’d edited before were all of the sudden not the latest version of them, or had reverted back to the original completely. I suspect this has been going on for some time, but I didn’t notice because I don’t check every scene every day. Not all of the scenes were like this, and I couldn’t find any discernable pattern. Fortunately, I compile every day and was able to hunt down and replace the edits that had been lost, but to say this is troubling is an understatement. I can’t even imagine having to look through all of my scenes every day to make sure something somewhere didn’t get lost.
I moved my original scriv file folder to my hard drive as I suspect this might have something to do with how Onedrive syncs automatically. I’ve had some errors with that before–unable to sync, or didn’t save errors. But, I’m a little squeamish of continuing to use Scrivener at the moment.
Is this a known issue? Is there anything you can suggest to help?
