encrypted file

I hope you can help, I have been using open office to write a book for over a year. The last time I attempted to open my file all I got was a pop up box that said asc filter options and then ####### is the file corrupted or encrypted? Its not ransom ware because there is no demand for money. This is a very important file. I thought open office saved info in the cloud so I don’t have a back up.
Ray T,

> Ray T,

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.
