So, here's my case: I do have a Writer file, in this Libreoffice Writer file, I copied a few tables from Libreoffice Calc(I actually did this for 6 hours) and pasted on Writer. When I went to see my file, there was a lot of tables that weren't there anymore. I do believe this happened after I renamed both files. Is there anyway I could recover those images/tables? Or how can I see where this images are linking? I tried to look on the Trash, rename again those files, But I simply can't find it. I have a lot 'empty images' on my file. I would not like to lose another 6 hours copying again.

According to this, you will want to look at Tools → Options → LibreOffice → Paths → Backups for the path. Then look fora relevant .bak file in that folder.

However, this assumes you have had the Tools → Options → Load/Save → General setting Save AutoRecovery information every...Minutes checked.

If you didn't have the auto saver you are probably out of luck.
