Document has disappeared from recovery

Postby alenab » Tue Apr 09, 2019 7:40 pm

I was unable to save an open office writer document that Ive been working on for over a year saved in dropbox and had to restart my computer. when I restarted my computer and opened open office, i was unable to recover the document. it does not exist in dropbox anymore either. I'm not sure what i did. i have no other copies of this document as it was saved in dropbox on my phone and in my computer. any advice on how to recover? I've restarted my mac a couple of times and am still given the option to recover the document but each time i click start recovery process, i receive a not recovered message and no other information. open office then opens a blank document. help!

And you have no intermediate backups?

A backup or backups you have made between creating the file and now. I suspect from your question that the answer is no.
Look at this Tutorial for ways of attempting to recover something.
