DocRepair is an easy-to-use tool for recovering corrupt or damaged Microsoft Word documents.
The program can repair documents created by Word 6.0, Word 95, 97, 2000, XP, 2003, 2007 and Word 2010 for Windows, Word for Mac, and more - both the DOC and DOCX formats.
And there's none of the usual data recovery complexities here. Essentially, DocRepair is just a wizard: point it at your damaged file, click Next a couple of times, and in a few seconds you should see your text. (And the program is able to recover embedded images, too.)
Does it work? There are many ways in which a Word document might be damaged, and no recovery tool can guarantee to fix them all. We do have a tricky corrupted document that we use to test these programs, though, and DocRepair fixed it immediately, no problems at all.
Please note, this is a trial version of the program, and so while it will display most of your recovered content, some words will be replaced by the text "DEMO". Once you've purchased a licence and unlocked the demo, this restriction will be removed, and you'll be able to save all the recovered data to the file name of your choice.
