Thank god you're here. I'm in such distress. For the past couple weeks I've been casually working on a 3,000+ word post in Open Office, frequently saving and whatnot. Well, tonight firefox decides to freak out and slow down my entire system, causing me to manually restart (I was working on the document while this was happening). The smoke cleared and everything seems to be working fine, except now my post is a 0 byte read only file. What the hell.
Can this be fixed? At first I thought I'd just do System Restore, but that apparently doesn't affect documents. Is there a way I can completely reset my computer to a couple hours ago, documents and all? Or maybe there's a way to fix this in Open Office?
I'm on an HP Pavilion dv7-1243cl (Vista) and I was typing the document out on Open Office 3.0. Do you need more information?
This is my hour of need!
