Can anyone explain Keith's answer more fully? I still don't understand what the problem is. Is there a better place to work on a project?
Where do most people work on their projects?
Is that working place different from the backup place?
The project "ProjectName.scriv" is stored inside its own automatic backups folder. This could potentially result in data loss in the event of an automatic backup trying to overwrite the current project file. It is therefore strongly recommended that you close the project and move it to a different location.
