All my documents vanished!

For no discernible reason, all my documents vanished and I had to re-register. I will greatly appreciate any advice on how to get them back.

You probably closed down your computer too quickly, before the housekeeping information for OpenOffice had been written to disk from the internal buffers in the hard drive.

Start OpenOffice, use /File /Open and select each file you require. It will now appear on the Recent Documents list.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.7 on Xubuntu 18.04.4 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP
