Hi!

I was in a middle of writing a long essay and when i was about to click save, my computer shut down. The file got corrupted, autobackup was not on, i can't find any temp files, even with recurva. The only file i found was in its original location but that ones also seems to be corrupted. I tried all the methods in the recovery thread, but i ask of you, if any of you could help me out. I'm desperate.

Thanks to anyone willing to help!

Both utterly corrupt as OO files - random computer memory garbage in both.

Your only hope is to see [Tutorial] How to find and un-delete AOO temporary files for

a) detailed instructions on how to recover your file as it was when you last opened or saved it, or as it was when it was last saved with AutoRecovery;

b) how to find previous versions of the file in the folder it is located in, but which have since been deleted;

c) how to un-delete the temporary files AOO wrote while you were editing the file, and then deleted. This will recover your file as it was when you last opened or you last saved it and is probably your best hope.
