What is a CRASHED file?
A CRASHED file is an auto-saved document created by the Mac version of AbiSource AbiWord, a free, open-source word processor. It saves a copy of the opened document (e.g., .AWB, .AWT, etc.) before the program crashed. AbiWord creates the file to rescue unsaved document edits that would otherwise have been lost to an unexpected crash.
AbiWord is a word processor developed by members of the AbiSource community. The program includes standard word-processing features and support for several document formats, including .DOCX, .DOC, .WPD, and .ODT.
