Question - what do I do with all the files which are not Word, jpeg, video.
I am a novice at this.
I have succesfully recovered files from my external WD hard drive.
What I have now is about 60folders labelled recup_dir.
Each of these has recovered files but all mixed up and renamed so I dont know what they are.
I can easily identify jpegs, videos and Word docs. but there are many hundred text files.

You may use the advices listed in to sort your files.
For files like .txt or .html, if you don't need them, you can always delete them. Most often recovered .txt are fragment of other files.
