I'm not sure if this is completely relevant to this section of the forum, but it seemed more at home here than anywhere else I saw. I used a file recovery program to recover a file that was out of my recycle bin a few weeks ago. The file was originally an AIM logged IM conversation that is saved as default as a .htm document. When the program recovered the file, it got about half of the conversation, but the other half came out with all characters like this "»ēS„A % ä£Ö" Does anybody know how/if I can convert this type of text into plain text so it's legible?
Thank you in advance for any help!
