I was recently using writer, as I tried to print a document, Libre Write crashed. I re-opened Libre Writer to be met with a recovery option. I recovered the file and a blank document appeared. I am unable find to find the actual document. I'd be thankful if someone could tell me how to access the file.

Thanks in advance.

Your original file may have been overwritten by the auto recovery procedure. If you enabled auto backup, you can find the backup file in the Backup folder of your user profile. You can find the path to the user profile in Tools - Options - LibreOffice - Paths.
