Word files encoding


Recommended Posts



After a big virus that deleted all my files, I used Recuva to recover them. The program recovered my files but when I want to open them (I'm talking about Word Documents), a message appears saying:


Select the encoding that makes your document readable.

Text encoding: Windows (default) / MS-DOS / Other encoding


Whichever one I select, the content of the document remains unreadable (sequences of weird symbols)


Does someone know how I can read my files ?


Thank you
