To answer your question, I am using OpenOffice to write all of my documents. I had a crash before I could save and name a lot of the docs I had open, as I was organizing things and waiting to name the docs according to what was in them -- thus the docs *weren't* named or saved. When I recovered from the crash, OpenOffice automatically brought up the recovered never-saved documents. But the documents had a lot of missing information in them.
I had noticed that when my computer crashed before, and I had an OpenOffice document open that *was* named and saved along the way, when the computer came back up, the recovered document was not the latest version. OpenOffice automatically recovers the documents that were open when the crash happened, but there is some type of error or bug, because it doesn't recover the last auto-saved version. I discovered this when it automatically recovered a document on its own, and when it did, I knew there was information missing from it, and decided to open the document from the file folder it was in, to see what was in that document. Lo and behold, it had all of the information in it, and none was missing. So the recovery feature doesn't recover the latest auto-saved version.
My concern is with the documents that were recovered but had never been named and saved. It recovers them as "untitled 1", etc, but it also does not recover the latest auto-saved version. So since I can not go to a file folder and open up the most recent version, since it was never saved by me, I am hoping to find the most recent temp file for it.
Does that make sense? I'm not sure I described it very well!!
If you are able to figure out how to point me in the right direction, I'd just appreciate it so!!
The documents were critical as they pertain to all of my daily medical tracking, as I am ill and bedridden, and must keep track of things closely. That's why I am so desperate to find the temp files.
Thank you so much for your time, and for all of your help.
