Need help opening .odt document

I have an external hard drive and I thought "I should save this article in case my computer breaks." I transferred the article to the hard drive, it didn't copy it like it usually does, it just transferred it.

Now I try to open the file from the hard drive and it brings up ascii filter options. The file still says it's 360 kb though.

Can anyone please help me open this, or is all hope lost? I have attached it below.

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Sadly, nothing to do: 22 page term paper replaced with pound signs.

Check the temporary folder of the system (see in OOo Tools>Options>OOo>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.

Else, nothing to do I fear.
