HELP!

mj weddingsofgeorgia.com
I have been working on a project using Open Office Spreadsheet for months -- it has worked perfectly and tonight, I open it up and all I get is a word document filled with hashtags.

I need SOMEONE to HELP me -- this document has imperative information in it and I have sat here in tears for hours trying to fix it.  I've used 4 different recovery systems and NOTHING is working!!

I NEED SOMEONE TO HELP ME RECOVER THIS FILE!!!  You can reach me here on email or by phone at (678) 548-9498.

How do you archive/backup your system?
How frequently do you archive/backup your system?
Where do you store the archives/backups?

I'll suggest that at this stage of the game, your only hope of being
able to recover the document, is to utilise the services of a firm that
specialises in forensic data recovery. The last time I priced these
services was almost a decade ago, but back then, US$100,000 was the
minimum charge, and the typical charge was a couple of orders of
magnitude higher.

Either your computer crashed, or you powered down your computer before the internal housekeeping had been completed.  Your file is corrupted and experience om OpenOffice User Forum indicates that nothing can be recovered from it.  However, you may recover some of the temporary files generated in the process of editing.  Details are given in this tutorial

https://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=71&t=85038

You should also use a utility such as Recuva which may also find some of these deleted temporary files.

Note that help on the Forum and on this mailing list is given by volunteers in their own time on a pro bono basis.

As always, if there are no backups, there's probably nothing you or anyone
else can do about it, more than learning the lesson and start making daily
incremental backups from now on. Drives are cheap these days, and
reasonably fast too, so there's really no excuse for not doing backups.
Additional backups to some reasonably safe cloud service could be a good
complement too, in some cases.



Kind regards

I backup the entire PC to Carbonite (about $60/Yr) and all my documents
(spreadsheets, databases and documents) are ALSO backed up to Google
Drive.  My Photos, Videos and pictures are ALSO backed up to OneDrive
(Microsoft).  Therefore, I have, at minimum, 2 places I can go to
restore my data.  This is all done automatically - I don't have to
remember to do anything.

Peace of mind is worth less than $100 per year.
