My files are indeed unrecoverable, after opening a ticket and sending them to support they have confirmed this.
My recommendation for anyone working professionally is to stick to 1.9 for the foreseeable, it works just as well and is tested over many years fixing 99.99% of the bugs, this version has not gone through this and may lead to data loss like mine.

For future buyers of 3.0 for Windows, I and hundreds(?) of others have been using V3 for several years on both converted and new projects with no data loss issues. While Talentedc’s experience is unfortunate it is unreasonable to blame Scrivener for:
AV software causing issues (particularly one program that has issues with not just Scrivener).
A possible system failure of indeterminate cause.
User failure to put in place an even basic backup process. In over 5 decades in IT I have seen more grief from lack of backups than almost any other cause. When coaching on any software, my first topic after installation is always Backup Strategy.
V3 is stable, robust, has not caused any data issues since early beta. Use it with confidence, but as with all software, backups are gold.
