Elias Black 11-08-2020

I used this program to repair a damaged Microsoft Word 2007 file. During the fix, the text on the second page was restored without formatting, on all the rest it retained its style.

Disembogue 29-06-2020

MS Office 2007 does not read the content of the document because it was damaged due to improper use of the flash drive. The document was repaired well, if you do not take into account the formatting of text and tables.

Trepang 15-06-2020

After I cracked the password of a Word 2007 document and saved it on top of the current document, it started showing the error "A file error has occurred" and stopped opening the file. After restoring the .DOC file, I noticed that the text was restored completely, but without formatting.

Denis 03-06-2020

Good!!!

Onomancy 01-06-2020

When opening a document in MS Office Word, the program cannot find out the encoding of the file. I tried to sort through the available encoding options, but it did not help. An unreadable encoding file was fixed using the software, but since the file was in Turkish, some characters were replaced with Cyrillic.
