Hie all,

I was working on a ppt file for a whole day and I am sure I saved my modifications several times.
The next day, when I oppened the file, openOffice did not ask me for any recovery, but I lost many modifications. This is really strange :eek:.

Does any one know a solution for recovery???

I am in fedora 10.

Best regards.

Is it possible that your work got saved in a different file format that *.ppt? Do you have spreadsheets with the same name but different file extensions?

Yes, I did check by searching files names fileName.*

Do you mean "Yes I do have files with the same name but different extensions" or "Yes, I checked and I don't have files with the same name but different extension"? (Did you search the whole filesystem or just one directory?)

I mean: "Yes, I checked and I don't have files with the same name but different extension"

It is really strange because oppenoffice used to propose file recovery in case of corruption, but this time, it did not!
