Recovering LibreOffice (.odt) file -- how?
I'll try to keep this as unemotional as possible .. but I'm pretty disgusted that something a simple as installing CCSM in 11.10 will automatically TRASH documents -- even though I saved them before restarting!
And yes, it's done it twice now!
So, not having really had to spend any real amount of time trying to recovery documents in Ubuntu, I've only recently done some reading on testdisk and photorec. Supposedly, the latter is what I need -- except, it does not provide any option to select .odt files, or anything like them.
I don't really want to have to browse through thousands of entries in a 105GB Ext4 partition just to find one document -- which is what I'm guessing testdisk is going to do if I turn it loose on the partition.
So, is there any simple way to recover a now missing, odt file?
UPDATE2: Sorry, after considerable searching, was not able to find the earlier page I had seen referring to the Ext4 zero filesize problem with LibreOffice. So, I have to retract this earlier statement -- and I have added a new reply to this thread.
