I wrote a really important document and saved it under documents folder. When I restarted my computer I discovered I cannot find the file in it's location. When I opened writer it tells me I need to restore the file, but when I click next it cannot find the file and says the restoration failed. What can I do?
In a teminal use these commands which may help you find your file:
'sudo updatedb' 'sudo locate '
'sudo locate .odt'
The above will list all files on your PC with the characters '.odt' in them. .odt being the default file extension of LibreOffice Writer.
Perhaps the document is on a USB stick which has since been removed?
