Hi :)

I guess 1st thing is to try looking in the folder that the document itself is stored in to see if 
there is a back-up there.  It should be in the Back-up folder that you looked in but the documents 
own folder might be worth checking.  Ignore the ~lock-file as i don't think that has anyhting 
useful.  (hmm, i would poke in there "just in case" (if i could))

Have you tried re-opening LibreOffice?  Often when you re-open LibreOffice it asks if you want to 
recover the document(s) you had open last time.  it doesn't always recover the document properly 
but it might be worth trying.  

Have you emailed anyone a recent version?  or saved to usb-stick or other different place?  When i 
lose things i tend to find re-typing or re-doing the thing takes a LOT less time because i have 
more idea of the end point and when i stumble into the same decisions i somehow remember roughly 
waht i chose last time.  However, i hope you are able to recover the document!  

Tools - Options - General 
have you got the 
"Save auto-recover information" box ticked as well as the 
"Save backup copy"?  
Regards from 
Tom :)

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Automatic Backup in LibreOffice Base

vi informo che LibreOffice Base, usato insieme a Linux/Xubuntu 12.04 LTS, durante la fase 
di immissione di nuovi record non ha eseguito il previsto backup automatico (ad esempio ogni 15 
minuti). Ho controllato l'opzione ed era regolarmente selezionata; il programma si è 
improvvisamente chiuso senza segnalare nulla. La cartella "Backup" era vuota.
Ho perso così mezza giornata di lavoro.

           ---------------------------         TRANSLATION      

I'd like inform you that in LibreOffice Base (platform Linux/Xubuntu 12.04 LTS) the 
Automatic Backup, I expected to start every 10/15 minutes, does not work, in my experience at 
least. The option was selected (Option>Save>General) but, when the program suddenly closed for a 
unknown reason, the program did'nt ask anything and saved not even one record of my work (a 
morning of record immission!).
The folder "Backup" was empty.
Thank you very much for your assistance, greetings.
