  1. Why are odf documents opened in docx?

    I figured it out for myself. Here is the procedure to use when the recovered item wants to open in the "wrong" software program after being found with a Recuva scan. As in As a Word docx rather than an Open Office odt extensions. When the Recuva scan is complete Select the documents or other items that are likely to be what you are trying to recover Recover them to a new folder on the desk top Open the new folder, if your recovered items are there Starting at the bottom of the document, highlight each recovered file to highlight it for the most recent and most completely saved item While still highlighted hesitate to let the author information box come up Review the information If this is the file you need to fully restore Right click and choose Restore Previous Versions This will open the Properties box Go to the General tab In Type of File it will show the file extension Just below that field is Opens With, click on Change Choose the software application that is "correct" for your needs This will change from, say MS Word's docx extension to Open Office's ODF extension—or whatever change you need to make to open and save whatever you were working on Life is good again.
  2. Today I was distracted and hit delete when I aught to have hit save as for a new file name. Open Office, which I am currently using because my MS Office subscription could not be paid, is an odf file extension. When Recuva finds the docs, previously saved versions I'm guessing, and I have them sent to a folder on the desk top, they all present at Word documents, which won't open, rather than the Open Office documents, which will open. I spent 3 hours creating that document. After changing the file name I hit delete rather than save as. It must be recovered. Please help me "get it back".
