Corrupted files

Ever since I upgraded OpenOffice to 4.1.15 I occasionally get the following error message when I open a document:

The file XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.odt is corrupt and therefore cannot be opened. OpenOffice can try to repair the file.

The corruption could be the result of document manipulation or of structural document damage due to data transmission.

We recommend that you do not trust the content of the repaired document. Execution of macros is disabled for this document.

What is meant by "document manipulation" and "damage due to data transmission"? How can I prevent this error from occurring?

Upload a small document file (eg .odt) showing the problem so that it can be analysed. Use the Upload attachment tab below where you type (128 kB max) or use a file share site for a larger file.
