Description Bill Palis 2012-05-22 19:18:57 UTC
Version 3.2.1 Build 9502 

Starting Open office always results in the recovery of a file which no longer exists.

File in /tmp/username was opened and then the application crashed.

When Open office was opened the recovery dialog box displays and attempts recovering a file long gone.

How can this be avoided and or resolved?

Version AOO3.4_1327774

whether the file exists or not, when application crash and you restart open office,it will always results in the recovery dialog of a file just opened in AOO.

if you don't want to recovery,can click cancel;and later you start application again,it will not let you to recovery again.
if you want to recovery(default to recovery)and the file is no longer exists,it will pop up a message about the file deleted.

I think it met user behavior.

I have the same issue on OOo3.4.1........Document Recovery pop-up message fails to go away.

Date: January 2014...

After a full Uninstall and Powerful Scan with IObit Uninstaller3 to remove all traces of OOo3.4.1 AND removal even of the Program Folder "Open Office4" that there was precious little left... On re-installation of a clean OOo3.4.1 from Source Forge; I still get the Start-up dialogue box: "Document Recovery".  Its letting me know that a file that actually exists can't be recovered.  No way yet of ending the nuisance.

Don't wish to install version OOo4.1 because it yields a dialogue Error Message "Cant read BASIC"....I guess that is a font issue on the Oo3.4.1 files..

Anyone know the easy English?
