.ods file has gone wonky

Postby Sated » Sat Feb 22, 2020 1:31 am

When closing the PC it crashed and I think it destroyed one of my .ods files.
When I open the file it comes up with a screen asking me what ASCII Filter Set I want. Does matter which one I try all I get is 21 pages of hash tags ###################
Has the file been permanently corrupted or is there a fix?

There are some things you can try in this tutorial to recover temp versions of the file. The current version of the file is almost certainly corrupted beyond repair.
