LibreOffice Crashing & Deleting my files

LibreOffice was crashing and refusing to run, so I updated the version and the new install DELETED a whole week of Saved work updates!!! Is there any way to recover my work? It was saved; but, it’s now gone.

LibreOffice can’t delete your files.

Open LibreOffice, the program, and then open your file.
I assume that you know where your files are stored. See also:
File management

If you are using the Windows operating system, a Windows update may have lost the file association. Restore the file association:
Assign files to LibreOffice

Hope it helps you.
