I just want to avoid a panic here, as these cases are rare and I just cannot see how Scrivener itself could do anything like this. In Adam Christopher's case, he says that everything got reverted to a state from a year ago. This is quite a precise thing to happen and would involve a program being able to remember the states of files as they were a year ago and to be able to restore them to that state. Scrivener simply does not have that ability, any more than does TextEdit or Pages; it knows nothing of your files until you open them (the list in the Recent Projects menu being stored in the preferences and handled by OS X itself). And then, it only knows of them in their current state. So it is simply impossible for Scrivener to revert a file to an earlier state. The only sort of software that could do this is backup software.
During the update process, all that happens again is for Scrivener itself to get replaced. No files are touched - the update process just does not have that ability.
So this is what I mean that there must be something else going on.
Could you please list all of the software that you use for backup or that you have running in the background for maintenance tasks and so forth? It occurs to me that by gathering such a list it may turn out to be a bad combination - perhaps some software that does not like Scrivener's package format?
Thanks and all the best,
