All Docs Disappeared

Postby skinamarink » Mon Feb 05, 2018 7:02 am

Opened OO today in order to open a document -- all documents (thousands, organized in file folders) have disappeared - no folders, nothing, as if I'd opened the program for the first time to use it.
I've also tried "File Explorer" to find and open docs - same thing, all gone. I'm on Windows 10 and interestingly, the "OneDrive" section (if I use File Explorer) has also disappeared. Interestingly, I never had my docs in OneDrive anyway -- I had too many, so I stored them in the "This PC" section, under Documents.
Any ideas? Is there another method to see if I can find the file path to the docs?
(Nothing has happened that i know of to account for this - there's been no unusual event I can think of that migh thave caused it)
Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Hardly an OpenOffice problem. No restore of the machine to a former restore point?
No one accessed the machine?
Have you checked the machine for malware?
AOO 4.1.5 on Xubuntu 18.04 and on Windows 7 (with winPenPack port).

If you have more than one account on the machine, did you open the right account? If you right-click the Documents folder and select Properties, does the Documents Properties dialog show any files and folders in the Documents folder?
