Abnormal text files

#1 Post by briiow » 08 Aug 2014, 21:05

Hi.... I wonder if someone can advise me please.
I have just recovered a number of files off a corrupt DVD-R disk.
The jpegs were fine, the small Microsoft Word documents were fine,
but two large files written originally in Microsoft Word have recovered as text documents
in an unrecognized way. I am not adept enough to recognize the format, I have copied a small
portion below....( The original document is 10,244kb and contained jpegs}

If anyone can suggest a method of converting it into plain English I would appreciate any help.

Thanks Brian

The quickest solution is to disable txt file family in FileOpts.
