How To: Repair a Microsoft Word Document with DocRepair
DocRepair is a simple to use tool that can quickly repair damaged documents that cannot be opened in Microsoft Word. It can be used with DOC, DOCX and RTF files created using Microsoft Word 6.0 or later. This tutorial illustrates the process.
First, download DocRepair and install it on your computer.
The demo version will let you preview the repaired file so that you can see if it will work for you. Saving the repaired file is disabled, and some text is overwritten with the word DEMO. You will need to purchase a license to remove these limitations.
Repairing your Word document
Start DocRepair. The repair process will take three steps.
Step 1. Select the document to repair. Then click Next.
Step 2. Specify your recovery options. You should specify whether the document to be recovered contains non-English text and whether there are any embedded images to be recovered.
You can also specify if DocRepair should use salvage content retrieval mode. Use this option only for badly corrupted documents where an attempt to repair the document without this option did not recover all the needed text. This option is likely to result in some garbage being recovered as well.
Click Next when the selections have been completed.
DocRepair will now attempt to repair the file, and will display its progress. Click OK when it has finished.
Step 3. Preview the repaired document and then save it.
Note that in the demo version the word DEMO will be scattered liberally throughout the recovered text, and the ability to save the repaired file will be disabled. If you are satisfied that DocRepair has recovered your document then you can purchase a license and enter the license key into the demo software to enable the full functionality.
Click Next to save the repaired document.
