Scrivener folder structure missing files

I made the mistake of shutting down the computer with Scrivener running, my files exist in the project folder > [Project name] > Files > RTF file collection

I thought i could re-add them to the project via Add existing > [File name]

but it claims the file is already part of the folder even though it doesn’t exist in the tree. Please help :S


With Scrivener closed, use Windows Explorer to drag the problem files out to another location, such as the Desktop.

Open the project, and do any necessary cleanup. For instance, if you have “empty” Binder items with no content, delete them.

Then, reimport the files.
