I’m currently using Scrivener version 1.055b. I tried upgrading to version 1.03 (the current version on the website). When I open my existing project, which is about 39mb, I get the following message:
Welcome to Scrivener
The project you are trying to load users an older format and cannot be opened. Would you like to update it? A copy of the old project will be saved in the same directory.
When I select the option to update the project, a new copy is created, but there are not files in the project, just the trash. The backup copy is similarly hosed. If I examine the contents of the .scrv package of either copy, it appears as though there are some files left in there, but the project is completely unusable in Scrivener.
Luckily I have nightly backups of my project and my old copy of Scrivener, so I was able to revert to the old project and v1.055b.
Obviously, I would like to upgrade to the new version, but is there any way I can do this without hosing my work?
