I formatted my hard drive a couple of days ago, but before formatting, I copied My Documents folder to a CD. After replacing the OS (Win ME) and all the software, I tried to load the files from My Documents back-up- disk and all the yellow folders loaded but the Word documents wouldn't and I couldn't get them to open direct from the disk. I tried using Bad Copy software to retrieve the files but although I could now copy them to my hard drive, they still wouldn't open. Can anyone assist please.........Dave (n)
Incidentally, I used Nero 6 to burn the backup disk. I've done it plenty of times before quite successfully. I have 512mb ram, pent3 700mhz processor and 2X20gb Harddrives

Is the problem with the docs or with the Word prog? Can you start Word ok and create new docs?

I think that something wrong with your Word. Try reinstalling the same version you had before formatting.
Some advice for the future: use other back-up methods; there are a lot of programs for it. For example personally I use True Image for that.
