The recovery dialog is a bit convoluted. Users should not have to "finish" (what does that even mean?) the recovery dialog in cases where only a single file is recovered. see other fields for details
Steps to Reproduce:
1. user is asked to Recover or Cancle
2. select "Recover"
disclaimer: this concerns only the case where a single file has been recovered.
user is presented with dialog shown in screenshot. dialog suggests that one file was successfully recovered.
user is super happy. but...
... why does the user have to click on "finish" in order to actually proceed? what value is gained in that step?
I suggest the following more sane workflow:
1. if the file is successfully recovered → open the damn file (: done
2. if the file cannot be recovered, show a dialog and explain why and what happened.

Seems like a good idea -> NEW
This looks like a relatively easy issue to work on for a newbie developer. Has no effect anywhere other than in the dialog, and one doesn't even have to introduce new functionality, just play with dialog logic. Adding needDevEval
*** Bug 153168 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Duplicate bug 153168 argues for entire removal of that step.
The use of it is that it reports success or failure of recovery of document, but as the OP argues, a message could be shown _only_ to report on failures if they exist.
Adding Hossein for the NeedsDevEval keyword.
This issue should be fixed by Justin Luth for 24.2:
tdf#145606 autorecover: skip "Finish" button if all recovered OK.
Justin, I'll let you confirm that and mark as "resolved - fixed" :)
