New in Recovery for Word 5.0:
Recovery for Word is designed for effective data recovery from corrupted Microsoft Word documents. Using Recovery for Word allows to avoid the loss of important information. Nowadays Microsoft Word textual processor is the most widespread tool for creation any types of documents, including corporate documents.
Recovery for Word scans, analyzes the corrupted file and exports all available data from the file. If the document is strongly damaged, some data loss is inevitable. All restored data is saved into a new rtf document. After the recovery the document becomes available for processing. Recovery for Word repairs text and formatting, tables, bulleted lists, embedded graphics (images are placed at the end of the recovered document), charts and drawings, headers and footnotes, fields, including URLs, OLE objects and so on.
The important fact is that the program only analyzes the damaged file and does not change the original data. Recovery for Word works with text files of various formats: Microsoft Word documents of different versions (.doc, .docx and .docm files) and Rich Text documents (.rtf files).
The demo result allows to evaluate recoverability of a particular corrupted word document.
There are two typical outcomes of using the demo results:
At first a very important point is to define whether your doc, docs or rtf file is corrupted. A word file is corrupted when it has inconsistencies that make it impossible to open it with Microsoft Word. If while trying to open your doc, docx or rtf file you got an error message or the application crashed or the file could open as a mix of random characters, all these are typical symptoms of your word file corruption.
The good news is that in most cases a half of corrupted word files aren't lost completely. And Recovery for Word was exactly created to fix and restore the remaining non-corrupted data from damaged doc, docs or rtf files. You will get your data back and will be able to open it with Microsoft Word without any errors.
