Writer document is corrupted

Postby cumeo89 » Tue Jun 01, 2010 8:48 pm

My friend's computer went out of power while he was saving his document. When he opened the document again, it was full of # characters.

I read the topic here: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=30870. However, I post his file here hoping that someone can fix it. I tried Object Fix Zip but it said that the file is "incomplete" :-(

What should we do now? Does OpenOffice save a backup file somewhere in the file system?

Sorry, nothing to be done: 22 page term paper replaced with pound signs.

The backup folder may be hidden, see [Tutorial] The OOo user profile.
