As a writer, I rely rather heavily on my OpenOffice software to keep my stories. Occasionally my computer blue screens but at this point, I don't worry about it because it isn't virus-related and I cannot afford a new computer.
I saved a 26-page story on OpenOffice Writer, and as soon as I saved it, it blue screened and restarted. I started it in normal mode. When I went to open the story again to make sure it saved okay, it prompted me asking for "ASCII Filter Options," including character set, default fonts, language, and paragraph break. When I clicked OK or Cancel, it said that my file was read-only. I never save them in read-only formats.
Whether I opened a copy or the read-only format, my story was completely gone. It was reduced to 13 pages of nothing but #, repeated over and over again.
I use a Windows 7 computer.
Is there any way to get my story back? This is rather upsetting.
