    Hello, I have been reading some posts about you to repair a file and it says to use the text converter. I dont see how to use it though. The attached file is corrupt and I think it is because my HD crashed a few days ago. I want to repair this file. Can someone try to repair it? When it opens it says it is corrupt and the text converter might be able to repair. Maybe an expert has some other advice.

    thank you


    – One more resources might be helpful to get more info for solving the issue

    If your word file corrupted, apply Microsoft internal function for such situations…
    1. Open Microsoft Word from the “Start” menu of your computer if the program or the computer shut down while you were working in Word. Word often re-launches automatically after an unexpected shutdown such as this, but, even if it doesn’t, when you reopen the program, any recovered files appear in a recovery pane on the left-hand side of the screen.
    2. Click on the file that you want to recover in the left recovery pane and the last saved version of the file comes up. If the last saved version was AutoRecover and not saved by you, the next time you try to save the file, you are prompted to enter a new name for the file.
    3. Enter a file name if you would like to save the recovered file under a new name. Navigate to the original file location, click on the file name and press the “Save” button to save over the original version of the file if you are certain that the auto-recovered version is the most recent version.


    I would like to suggest the easy or manual way to repair Word Document, just follow these steps:

    Step 1. Open MS Word application
    Step 2. Click on File and select Open option
    Step 3. Now, select corrupt Word file stored in your system
    Step 4. Click on the small arrow shown at the right corner of Open button
    Step 5. Then, select Open and Repair option.

    [MOD EDIT] Useful advice, but why ruin it by adding spam links to your profile. BANNED :evil:[/MOD EDIT]
