Recovered a 32GB .doc file ?!

#1 Post by webby1973 » 06 Apr 2016, 19:49

Hi,

I'm using PhotoRec 7.1 on a Mac, recovering an external NTFS HD from a Win7 machine.
I tried to recover doc/xls/ppt files but almost all of them (a few hundreds) where not recognized by Word/Excel/PPT.

There's a really odd thing: 1 .doc file of almost 32GB (gigabytes!) named f182134232.doc
I don't think it's a Word document, how can I see what it contains? Using TextWrangler I got a memory error.

Thank you for your suggestions :-)

Do you have more success if you try to open the recovered doc/xls/ppt files using libreoffice ?
You can ignore the 32GB .doc file, it's a false positive.

I don't have libreoffice, I should install it. I tried also with the OS X Finder Preview.

The big file has this head:

Using the "file" command via Terminal I got this error "CDF V2 Document, corrupt: Can't read SSAT"

What does it mean?
