How to remove/delete unrecoverable Untitled 1 document

Postby ushamir » Sun Sep 16, 2018 8:42 am

Every time I open OO [b]Document Recovery[/b] tells me I have an "Untitled 1" document "Not Recovered Yet". When I start recovery it comes back with "Recovery failed". Hitting Next takes me to the document I wanted to open.
This is a real nuisance and seems to also cause OO to crash/hang at random points while I work on my "valid documents".
My question is:
How can I remove/get rid of this "Untitled 1" faulty document? Thanks
Windows 10, OpenOffice 4.1.5

Instead of trying to recover, choose Cancel and see what happens.

I've spent 3 hours with the Geek Squad who tried to help. No luck but they did refer me here. I am unable to open any of my documents. When I click to open, it automatically takes me to the untitled document, click start recovery now. It doesn't matter if I choose recovery or cancel - no luck. Any suggestions, please? Joy
