Word 2013 file Corrupted - unable to recover?
Hi, we've got a word file on a USB memory stick which has been corrupted beyond Words ability to recover.
The file is about 13Mb, and opens to display a page full of squares!
Opening in other programs such as notepad/wordpad/openoffice meets with similar results - blank, # or squares again!
I've tried recovering the file with PC Inspector File Recovery & Easy Recovery Professional, but although both "recover" the file, it still displays only squares!
Is there any way to retreive the information in the file?
The following is from Microsoft documentation. It might help
OR as a variant check out https://repairword.recoverytoolbox.com/ Recovery Toolbox for Word
If a file has been damaged and you cannot open it by normal means, you may be able to recover its content by using the Open and Repair feature.
Click the Microsoft Office Button , and then click Open.
Browse to the file that you want to recover, and click it (do not double-click it).
Click the arrow next to the Open button, and then click Open and Repair.
