    I just formatted my drive, and realized I needed a word document that I didnt save.

    I ran On Track, Easy Recovery software, and recovered my document.

    The problem, is that its in some strange format, and I cant convert it to something I can see.

    Ive tried Rich Text Format, Word, etc...

    Isnt there some sort of way that I can convert the coding, to something I can read??

    Ive attached a copy of the doc. Any help would be great.

    The header suggests it was an .rtf file, however I would suggest that the formatting of the drive has corrupted the file.

    Thats hardly surprising as a format would seriously compromise any file, but the recovery software has obviously had a good try at recovering it.

    The file is not recognised by my Word version, trying all the common Word file formats.
