Re: Lost work

I thought I would attach some screenshots to clarify my problem a bit. My text seems to still exist somewhere, as I am getting a preview of the first few lines, as shown, but when I open it there are only boxes. Is there any way I can expand this preview? I have been trying for hours and I can't see...

Re: Lost work

The Rrf file only has boxes in it, but when I hover over the file I can see a preview with my actual text there . However, it cuts off after about a sentence. So the text is still somehow somewhere, but I am not sure how to access it as I believe the file has been corrupted

Re: Lost work

Do you know what kind of format I could find the _saved_ files in? The only scrivener openable file there is the old back up.

Lost work

Hi, I only have a trial version of Scrivener and I am new to the program. I was not aware that my files only backed up when I closed the program (they were on the default setting), and I haven't closed the program for a few days as I thought it autosaved. My computer has crashed with a few days wort...
