I have been using LibreOffice and OpenOffice before it for many years
and have never seen such behaviour.  As for associating older files,
that's an operating system function, where all files of a specific type,
no matter how old, are associated with the specified app.  So, if you
associate XLS files, then every one of them on your computer will now be
associated with LibreOffice, no matter how old.  You cannot control this
according to age.

Today in good faith I downloaded and for trial your Libre Office pack. I
installed it and already during the installation I expressly didn't wish
it to associate with files created by other software. After I launched
it then, it immediately and completely illogically asked me about
“restoration” of files I had at the time open in running Open Office. I
didn't authorize such nonsense, but your software instead of leaving the
files alone deleted the files and destroyed my unfinished work. It
deleted several dozens of open locked versions of both MS-Excel and Open
Office spreadsheets I was working on, caused immediate crash of Open
Office subsequently, while even - perhaps to add insult to injury -
associated itself AGAINST my authorization with old versions of the
files created in Open Office and MS Excel - which could be all described
as most violent malware behavior imaginable. Your pack maybe is for
free, but the damages caused to me by its behavior on my computer,
intruding files created by other software, I estimate to several
thousands USD on lost data, calculations and graphical representations,
which took me several weeks to put together, analyze and plot.
Nobody can wonder I'm now considering gain publicity for whole affair
and get your software blacklisted by antimalware providers, because it
clearly behaves against the general contract and legal regulations,
intruding and destroying intelectual property created using the software
provided by third parties.
