Cannot open OO Writer bcs ASCII Filter Options appears

Postby res » Fri Sep 22, 2017 1:23 pm

I cannot open OpenOffice Writer I created and yesterday and ASCII Filter Options appears that I do not change only press 'ok'. It opens other window that 'particular Document is locked up by unknown user' and I can either 'open as writing-locked' or 'to open working copy'. It does not matter which option I do press the text disappears and hash tags lines appear. other document from the same day I can open.

Your document is corrupted. If you post it here, someone may be able to repair it. After you click Post Reply, there is an upload attachment tab just below the box where you type a response.

There is no hope of recovering data from the file.

See [Tutorial] How to find and un-delete Writer temporary files for instructions on how to identify and un-delete the temporary files Writer wrote while you were editing the file, and then deleted. You should be able 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.

You may also find previous versions of the file in the folder it is located in, but which have since been deleted.

Thank you for the advice. I even have downloaded Recuva sw but obviously there is nothing to recover. At the end I got know from your entry what is the reason of corrupted document. Bye

I'm sorry but there is nothing in the file to recover; it consists entirely of null characters.

Correct.

See [Tutorial] How to find and un-delete Writer temporary files for detaild 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. You may also find previous versions of the file in the folder it is located in, but which have since been deleted.
