I had edited a file on Sunday, when I went to edit it again, the file AND file folder have disappeared from the disk! I really need that file back!

Thanks! It appears to be lost then. Probably when I updated the program.

An update of the program LibreOffice will never destroy a user-file!

Usually in this path: C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice\4\user\backup

In File Explorer, you should share the "Hidden Items" via "View" to see these files.

I wish you success!

Please note also that you may discover the path in OptionsLibreOfficePaths.
