Gree6tings Naama,

8.6kb is around about the size of a _blank_ odt file.  If you were to save  
it without any or very little text in it that's the size it would be so we  
can assume one of two things

1) that the file on the desktop is probably not the one you're after and  
so hopefully another version has been saved somewhere else.
2) or worst scenario is that you have overwritten your original document  
with a blank document which would only happen if you had saved the  
original to your desktop.

Going by what you say above I'm assuming you are using some version of  
Windows,. which one please.
