Last Nov after accessing an ods file I was hit with the error message “The file is … corrupt and therefore cannot be opened … can try to repair the file … this document.” I rebuilt the profile dealt with the “rabbit hole” that the file corruption error took me. I did not get back to any normalcy until I removed a sheet from a previous backup of the problem file. It was reduced to 1.5 gig from 2.0 gig.
Things went rocking along until the same corrupt issue cropped up again as I reached a file size of 2.0 gig.
Knowing I was nearing this threshold I had been backing up this ods file daily to another internal drive with the same OS. I moved this last backup to my main working drive and overwrote the reported corrupt file. No corrupt file message appeared when accessed. Great, but how can I continue any further work if I cannot get past what seems to be an apparent 2 gig limitation?
