How can I recover a previous version of a file

I saw a thread on this but I tried to follow the steps… and I just arrived at blank folders that seemed to show no files. I believe the auto backup thing is activated.

“”“You’ll find the previous version of the last saved version in the “backup” folder of your LibreOffice user profile (path see: “Tools → Options → LibreOffice → Paths → Backups”).”""""

I got stuck at this point, this is where I just arrived at the folders that appear empty yet they hold my files…
