       ah, the paper age vs. the computer age  ;-)

       Although the computer's HD - even the external HDs - can wear out,
the document itself can't;
          just be sure you have this - & all others - saved, so if one
begins to fail, you're still able to continue functioning as before.

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Documents wearing out?
To: LibreOffice Users <>

I have a to-do list in Writer that I update and save at least once a
day. I've had the same document for several months, and have probably
revised and saved it 250 times.

I have had no problem at all with it, but I'm wondering if a document
that has been used and abused that often may be prone to corruption or
damage? Should I consider cut-and-pasting the information into a blank
document on a regular schedule? Or just do the whole thing over from
scratch, also on a regular schedule?

I'm not sure I've *ever* had a LibreOffice document (Writer or Calc)
fail on me, but I'm certain I've never put one through the grinder at
this pace.
