Hi Tom,

It must have taken you an hour or so to write 3000 words. Did you have
automatic backups switched on ?  If so, you can likely find several
copies saved every 10 minutes or so.

Have you checked your backup path ?

I was writing my dissertation yesterday using Libre Office Writer. I accidentally saved it as 
2003 XML document. 

I had written 3000+ words and now I can not get the words back. 

However, when I open the document in Libre Office Writer, It comes up saying that there is 3000+ 
words in the word count and 6 pages in the properties but I can only see headers, some footnotes 
and two small paragraphs. My hand in is on monday and I'm having a nightmare right now. 

if i open the document in anything other than Libre Office Writer, it only appears in formula or 

I am going to attach the document now.

Thanks for your help in advance. "
