I regret that there is no data in the file - it is filled with null bytes, meaning there is nothing to be recovered. Please see [Tutorial] How to find and un-delete Writer temporary files for ways to try and recover any temporary Writer files that may still be on your computer.

I confirm - the file is damaged beyond repair, with no usable content.

Your file has been damaged, perhaps because of over hasty close down of the computer before internal housekeeping was complete. Examination shows that there is nothing usable in your damaged file.

If the link robleyd gives in his post doesn't help, then as soon as possible do the following:

Download Recuva or PhotoRec (only one needed) and let it do an indepth recovery of deleted files on your computer. You may get a file containing some or all of your data (or not). Do this as a first priority; other use of the computer may overwrite any existing but deleted files and prevent their recovery. There is no guarantee that you will recover anything useful.

Do the above soonest!
