Word file Corrupted - unable to recover?

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I doubt it. I assume that you can save a utility called SQL Server Recovery Toolbox. It is a powerful tool which I've heard a lot of good reviews. I hope it... Go to the full post »

Hi, we've got a word file on a USB memory stick which has been corrupted beyond Words ability to recover.
The file is about 13Mb, and opens to display a page full of squares!
Opening in other programs such as notepad/wordpad/openoffice meets with similar results - blank, # or squares again!

Is there any way to retrieve the information in the file?
Many thanks.

For the future, NEVER work on a file stored on a flash drive / USB memory stick. Instead copy the file to the computer to work on it, and when done copy it back. That way there is plenty of space for all the temp files that are needed by Word (and other applications.)
