Hi, I worked for several days on a odg file which is today impossible to open. LibreOffice doesn't show any message. It seems like it tries to open but doesn't manage. Is there anything I can do?

Thanks for your help

Hello Mike Thanks a lot! It save my life! Just have now to configure the auto saving option... David

No, the autosaving has nothing to do here... the file was corrupted on save, and that is some bug in LibreOffice. I don't know if it's your version, or is it also present in current versions (you didn't tell anything about that btw, so I had to look into the file's meta to guess it's x64 on Windows which is outdated both in 5.4 branch (where the last is, and also compared to current still (6.0) and fresh (6.1) branches). I'd advise to update first.

A side note: please don't use "Answer" to post something that doesn't actually answer your original question, but rather is a comment (use "add comment" for that kind of stuff). Thanks.

Yes, indeed I forgot to give the version. Sorry. I will upgrade to version 6 ASAP. Autosaving could have help to get back to a former backup. I saved many times this file without problem till this morning. Anyway thanks again for your help. BYT could you please delete the link to the fixed file in your first answer? I don't want it to be public.
