In response to ‘Recovery Failed’ message, Hit ‘Cancel’ NOT '‘Finish’.
There’s more than one that you could be referring to. Let’s list what they could all be:-
First, you need to enable “View hidden files” in whatever you are using to look at the file listing.
Next, lets assume that your document is called:-
- ./doc.odt (your Writer document)
- ./.~lock.doc.odt# (lock-file for your Writer document)
(contents include location of user config dir)
- (user-config-dir)/.lock (second lock-file for your Writer user)
Both lock files may need removing to be able to get access back to the bad document.
