The file 'My Writing Scrivener.scriv' is the correct (and complete) scrivener project I am trying to sync to.
This structure is borked. "Files," "Settings," and "Snapshots" are all folders inside of a Scrivener project. They should be children, not siblings, of either Tutorial,scriv (folder) or My Writing Scrivener (also a folder).
As a first step, create a brand new folder in your Documents directory, call it New Projects or whatever. Put NOTHING in it. Then, from within Scrivener, use the File -> Save As command to save your project there. Give it a completely new name to avoid confusion. Close Scrivener, open the project from the new location, and make sure it works correctly.
On my PC in my Dropbox folder this is how it is set up:
ThisPC >>Windows (C:)>> Users >> Coleen >> Dropbox
>>>> Scrivener (folder)
>>>> Docs (folder - this is empty!)
>>>> ProjectNotes (folder - this is empty!)
>> Get Started with Dropbox.pdf
This is also a problem. This is only part of a project, and nothing that Scrivener would be able to do anything useful with. I'd suggest dragging the entire contents of the Dropbox/Apps/Scrivener folder to another location, such as your Desktop, that's completely outside of Dropbox.
Once you've done that, open the new copy of your project that I had you create up above. Use the File -> Save As command to save it into the Dropbox/Apps/Scrivener folder. Again, give it a new name so you can keep all these extra copies straight. (You'll be able to delete them when you're done.)
Close Scrivener again, and again open the project, this time from the Dropbox/Apps/Scrivener folder. Does it work correctly?
If so, stand back and let Dropbox synchronize, first to the Dropbox server, then to the iPad. Success?
