Hello! I have a Writer file that was saved since the beginning as a DOCX document. When I finished working on it, I saved and closed, and then sent it to a friend by WhatsApp, then noticed that it was corrupted! Help! It’s a work of a number of days!!
LibreOffice version: 22.214.171.124 (x64)
OS: Windows 10.0
The file was left open on my laptop for days, while I was working on it. It was being autosaved every 10 minutes. I also would save it every now and then. It was being saved on my local Google Drive folder, and automatically synced. When I tried to recover an older version of the file from Google Drive, all the older versions turned out to be corrupted as well.
The language I used to type the file was Arabic.
After finishing the job and sending the file, I updated Windows and restarted, then opened the file again, only to notice that it was corrupted. What showed was only question marks like this:
I tried downloading an older version from my Google Drive. Same problem. I tried opening the file from MS Word rather than Writer, I got an error message saying that the file could not be opened, while in Writer, the file opens but is corrupted.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
