corrupt file

Ray s
Does anyone know if there is an online repair tool that would fix a .odt file in open office. I’m getting this when I open. ###### Thank you.

Hi Ray,

An .odt file is a zip-container. So first you should try, whether a
zip-tool can open the file. And if not, look for a zip-repair tool.

What do you see as first characters, if you open the file in an editor?
If it is not PK, than already the zip-container is surely corrupt.

All tries only on a copy of the file!

Kind regards
Regina

In case you missed an earlier reply. I repeat it below for your information.

An OpenOffice file showing ### is utterly corrupt and there will be no usable information in it.  Use the information below to attempt to find a complete or partial copy, or revert to a backup copy.

Earlier answer posted below:
---------------------
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.
