ASCII filters

Postby Paulinka » Wed Jan 07, 2015 7:44 pm

I've got a problem with my essay. I've been writing it on the same program (OO 4.1) on the same computer. And when i wanted to open it I saw ASCII Filter Options. When I press OK or Cancel I can't open the read only and when I open the copy I see only some hashes :( Help me!

Unfortunately your document is corrupt and cannot be recovered. Hopefully you have a backup copy to work with. There may be a backup copy in the user profile https://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum/v ... 74&t=12426. look for your file name .bak.

Unfortunately I don't have it there :/ Do you have any idea what is the reason of my problem and are my other documents safe?

Sadly, quite nothing to do I fear, see: 22 pages term paper replaced with pound signs.

Check the temporary folder of the system (see in OO Tools>Options>OO>Paths). If there are folders like sgmlf.tmp with a file having the same name inside, make a copy of that file, rename it in .odt and cross your fingers. If you have not rebooted, you might have those files still there.

It often happens when there is a power cut or a crash when saving.
If you want to help fix this problem, you can also do this survey created for this very problem: Document Recovery Survey.

Unfortunately I lost a part of my essay, but maybe it's not that bad- it was quite weak :)
Thanks for your advice- it's still good to know that someone tried to help me.
