Default Corrupted Documents

I had to get a new computer as I mentioned in another thread, so a file transfer had to be done, but now I find that there are files corrupted. I counted about 50, but there may be more, and they're most of the Note Pad ones. I don't know if it happened when I tried (unsuccessfully) to do it. or if it was because the technician pulled out the memory stick when it wasn't safe. I tried to recover them with Wondershare, but it doesn't do anything except analyze.

Have you tried Recuva?

No, but I checked it out now and it seems to be only for deleted data.

Also for corrupted file systems. If you try it on the storage device that got ejected early it may help.

Now I'm told that it might be an application problem, so that I would have to somehow convert the documents from Note Pad to Open Office.

You can try installing LibrrOffice and open them with that app, there is no need to convert I believe.

I installed LibreOffice, but I can't open them with it, I can only open them with Note Pad.

Default Re: Corrupted Documents

I thought there must be something I could do with the list so I checked again, and I found there were actually 8 options to open the documents with, there were 2 options hidden at the bottom that you have to scroll down for, and 1 was Word 2016, so I opened them with it, and they were OK, except for 1 which was damaged, but I copied and pasted some of them into Open Office in case. And there were only about 12 that were corrupted, not 50 or 60. So the problem is solved. Thanks anyways for your help.
