Backup first then give one of your copies a .zip extension. Open this file then open the content.xml file. You may be able to recover your text from there.

The answer to A and B are simple.. Did you make backups/copies of the file to some other drive/Locations? Thumb drives are not real expensive these days and there is no logical reason not to have several backup copies of an important file. The reason can be as simple as a dead battery in a laptop to a power surge on a desktop. Do not blame the software for your failures.

Computers are only machines they do not think nor can they do something without instruction. You have to tell them what to do and when.

There's also Dropbox (which is free) or simply sending the document to yourself as an email attachment (also free).

Why would you not have a backup copy of your thesis?

If you didn't make a backup somewhere, you were taking an awfully huge risk regardless of the software. What if the hard drive failed or lightning struck or someone stole the PC?
I hope someone is able to recover most of it for you though.

Another unsung method is Versioning. A backup to backups.

Hi,


Go to Tools -> Options, in the popup window Click Load/Save and check if you have ticked the Always create backup copy box.
If the box is ticked then Click Paths under OpenOffice.org and you find the directory where the backups are stored.

Regards,
Martin
