Hi :)  
Can you upload the file to Nabble, here, so that we can all have a look?  

Are you new to LibreOffice/OpenOffice?  (Please let that be a yes!)  When
you try to open any document LibreOffice/OpenOffice sometimes worries that
your last document wasn't saved properly before closing and asks if you want
to recover that previous session first.  Just "Cancel" that to open the real
file you wanted to open instead of whichever file LibreOffice is worrying

Normally when you open LibreOffice you do it by double-clicking on a file,
right?  Can you open LibreOffice as a program without doing that?  In
Windows it's something like
Start - "All programs" - LibreOffice - LibreOffice
then drag your file onto the grey areas inside the window that opens.  Avoid
dropping it on the white "splash screen" in the middle (although that
probably wont hurt to much).  

Errr, are the file-sizes the same on all 3 hard-drives?  Can you check that
and let us know without actually opening them again?  

Also do you have  copy on usb-stick, emailed to yourself or a colleague, or
friend or anyone?  You might be able to find that email and get the
attachment re-saved somewhere useful?  Did you upload it to the Cloud
somewhere fairly recently so you could work on it at a different location?  

With a bit of luck you might only lose a small amount of the work and be
able to pull it back together just by being calm and thinking about recent
copies that might be floating around somewhere?  

I take it you have already looked in the back-up folder in your User

Good luck with this!
Regard from
Tom :)
