I’ve got an .odt (Open Document Text) file that I’ve accidentally overwritten.
If I open it in the browser, I can see the previous versions of the file.
If I try to restore one of them, all looks fine in the browser, but the file on my machine just gets a red cross icon on it.
I can see that there’s a copy of the file that gets created, in the format … .name.odt.~23a9
I’ve tried copying that file to a different location, renaming and opening it. Unfortunately, LibreOffice just says that the file is corrupt. If it attempts to repair it, all that survives is the header and footer.
Is there anyway to restore a previous version of a file to a different file name? Or anything else that I can try?
I’m using a free Nextcloud service with tab.digital
Nextcloud Desktop Client: 3.7.4
Operating system and version: Windows 10
Apache or nginx version: Not self hosting
PHP version: Not self hosting
Steps to replicate it:
- Create an Open Document file and let it sync.
- Change it a few times (syncing after each).
- Try to restore one of the previous versions.
The output of your Nextcloud log in: I don’t know where/how to find this, sorry.
The output of your config.php file in: Not self hosting
The output of your Apache/nginx/system log in: Not self hosting
Output errors in nextcloud.log in /var/www/ or as admin user in top right menu, filtering for errors. Use a pastebin service if necessary.: I’m not finding anything.
