ODT File

Amanda Echevarria
Hi,
I'm unable to open one of my open document text files. A screen keeps
popping up that says: ASCII Filter Options and then it lists the
properties, such as character set, default fonts, language and paragraph
break.  Once I click OK the file comes up and all of the words I had typed
are gone and the entire document and page is filled with # symbols.  I am
not sure how this happened at all and I need help fixing it and getting
back everything I had written on that document.  Please advise, I'd truly
appreciate it!

Thank you in advance.

Sincerely,
Amanda E.

The file is damaged beyond repair, possibly due to disconnection from the remote location because of connection failure before the file was fully transmitted, or over hasty power off of your computer or closure of laptop lid, before the file housekeeping had been transmitted

As soon as possible try the methods in this tutorial
https://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=71&t=85038for detailed instructions on how to

a) use Previous Versions (W7 and later) to recover previous versions of the file.

b) recover your file as it was when you last opened or saved it, or as it was when it was last saved with AutoRecovery;

c) find previous versions of the file in the folder it is located in, but which have since been deleted;

d) un-delete the temporary files AOO wrote while you were editing the file, and then deleted.  This may recover your file as it was when you last opened or you last saved it.

Waste no time with the existing file - it will have no usable content.
