I've using Scrivener on Windows and the iOS app. In the last couple of days, I've opened text files to find them empty. Today when I tried to use Scrivener on my laptop, I got an error message. At the top is the Scrivener logo, and it says: "Sync Error." Below that is says: "Could not copy/remove content, content styles and/or content comments for UUID:" and then there's a long alpha-numeric chain.

What do I do?

I have been having exactly this issue when trying to open a project on my PC after I have done work on my iPhone. The app has synched (because I do that manually) and I've even closed the app and opened it again, pressed the synch button again. The DropBox icon shows it's taking the files. Then when I try to open the project, I get a list of 28 files that it couldn't copy. Image
