    recovering corrupt word files

    Afternoon all,

    I have a tutor that had a corrupt usb stick, I have recovered her files but a few of the Word files (2003) are corrupt!

    I have used some software on the net that recovers the first paragragh for me, so I know it can be recovered, but it costs another $399 to get the rest!!!!

    Is there any software out there that will do the whole document for free? and if so can you send me a link.

    Thanks

    -edit-

    and used the repair function, open office saving as a HTLM file...

    @RichB:

    Are they confidential files?
    If not would you like to send them to me as I have various recovery tools at my disposal and would love to help you out if at all possible.
    Just PM me for E-mail address if you want to go ahead.

    Try opening them up in wordpad or notepad. It may look like gobbledy gook to start with but somewhere in there should be the original text. It might not work if there was tables or pictures in though.

    If it's just the files which are corrupt then OpenOffice.org will open quite a lot of MS Office files which MS Office refuses to touch.

    Another vote for OpenOffice. It usually handles corrupt office documents better than office itself!.

    funny enough after reading this on friday, monay morning i get a call raised for a corrupt word doc, have tried methods explained above, have tried restores, but it seems it had been corrupted some time ago!

    so is there really any software out there, for free, that can help me?

    Did anyone have any luck recovering their files. A student came in today with a 35 page word document. It's corrupt and only opens the first 5 pages. when word tries to recover it, it's all messed up. Tried open office, notepad, wordpad, word xp, word 2007.
