I did a search on my Mac for the old files, and couldn’t find them in Finder. So, I went into my hard drive. There are no dates associated with the backups zipped there. I don’t know which ones are the most recent. Each time I try to check, Scrivener repopulates the project folders. I got a warning that one file was within a backup and could accidentally be overwritten.
Anyhow…I’m confused. I have three different project versions of one of my novels now, and none of them appear to be the latest version. I want to start over, but I’m afraid to delete them.
Can someone please tell me how I can find what .scriv file to use to repopulate my project? Should I be using the zipped ones? I have three novels and many short stories I need to reopen with the new Scrivener.
And what do I do with the three backed up versions I have accidentally set up as projects? I just wanted to see what the dates were on the .scriv files. I didn’t think Scrivener would grab them and rebuild everything.
I hope this makes sense. I’m not an IT wizard as you can tell. And I just don’t know if I’m doing anything right.
Thanks to whomever tries to help. I need ya.
