Unsupported Word file type.
I have followed the directions here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316951 and every time I attempt to open up the file in Word 2010 it tells me:
"Microsoft Word cannot open this file because it is an unsupported file type."
I am curious as to how to follow the steps in the KB article if they don't work. This is on more than one .asd file.
Sometimes the Microsoft explanation is overdone. Try an easier answer. I put .asd in Google and came up with this...

The other possibility is that it isn't a Word document. Could it be Excel?
Please read carefully what it says for Word 2010 on the http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316951 page...
.asd files were used in Word 2007, for Word 2010:
And I quote:
On the File menu, click Recent.
Click Recover Unsaved Documents.
So I can only conclude that .asd files are NOT handled by Word 2010.
I think in this case you should use Recovery Toolbox. Maybe something happens to restore. http://www.oemailrecovery.com/word_repair.html
Here's something to look at: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Fo … fficeitpro

We stay a sleep. Watching their TV, listening to their music, buying their products, taking their drugs. Walking through this life in a trance. Some of of us want to stay a sleep. We know something is off, but dare not question it. The movie 'The Matrix' is just that. A movie, but the concept is...
