Deleting files in Recovery Mode?

Postby logisticsgroup » Sat Jan 25, 2020 9:04 pm

When I restart my Open Office, there are some files that try to be recovered that I don't need.
Is there a way to delete these files from the recovery screen?
Thank you,
John

When you are asked if it should recover and you don't want it to, press Cancel button.

Understood, but the same 10 files never get recovered
and I can’t find a way to delete them from appearing
on startup.

If you press Cancel for each file prompt, those files should then be abandoned and not show for recovery again. If they keep showing, there is something else causing this - perhaps read-only permissions in their folder.
