OS - Windows All

File Size - 8.07 MB

Developer Provided Description - "In order to deal with HTML's loose standards, XML was designed to be intolerant of errors. This XML "precision decision" adversely effects MS Word's corruption recovery. If there is one error in the document.xml file where all the docx text is stored within the larger docx zip structure, Microsoft Word will error out and not display any text. This can be quite frustrating in a data recovery situation where partial recovery is better than nothing.

Savvy Word Recovery attempts to fix document.xml files by identifying the first error and then truncating it 50 characters before. The extra truncation is sometimes needed because the XML validation often indicates an error only after several characters of bad XML have already been passed.

After truncation the program adds the correct xml ending tags and the file along with its other xml files is rezipped and opened as a docx file in Word. Truncation is adjustable."

Name - CMD Corrupt OfficeOpen2txt

Developer - Ccy / S2 Services / Paul Pruitt

OS - Windows XP - Windows 7

File Size - 797 KB

Developer Provided Description - "Perfect for online scripts and services needing text or data extraction from both corrupt or healthy docx, xlsx or pptx files. Coded by Ccy, author of HaHa Zip and using Delphi Zip, CMD Corrupt OfficeOpen2Txt will often recover text from corrupt "Office Open" format files where the respective Microsoft Office 2007 or 2010 programs cannot salvage the text or data. Office Open format files are zipped collections of XML files.

There are two kinds of corruption of these types of files, zip structure corruption and XML corruption. This program deals with both. The unzipping module used in Office 2007 and 2010, is more finicky than InfoZip module used by CMD Corrupt OfficeOpen2Txt. Thus the collection of files making up the docx, xlsx or pptx file can be extracted as raw material for data/text extraction in the programs 2nd stage. MS Office doesn't even get this far sometimes.In regards to XML corruption, the format is by design a very unforgiving medium for file damage. From the errors returned from attempts at salvaging the text from Office 2007 and 2010 it appears Microsoft is using a fairly standard interpreter of XML even when encountering corruption. CMD Corrupt OfficeOpen2Txt on the other hand does not get hung up by so call XML issues of "well formatting". It simply removes the tags from the data and text as far as possible, ignoring badly formed tag issues."

Name - Corrupt DOCX Salvager


Download URL - Download link

Developer - Paul Pruitt / S2 Services

OS - Windows All

File Size - 6.11 MB

Developer Provided Description - "This GUI program will extract text from damaged/corrupted Word files formatted in the new docx format where Word itself fails.

Docx files are actually zipped collections of XML files. XML as a format is unforgiving of data corruption. The main text in docx files is found in document.xml file in the collection. Damaged docx2txt uses 7Zip, an unzipper that will sometimes unzip partially corrupt document.xml files even though reporting an error.

Additionally the Perl routine used to extract the text from the document.xml file doesn't care about well-formedness of the XML, a stumbling block of Word 2007 and 2010."

Developer - Ccy / S2 Services / Paul Pruitt

OS - Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7 and 8

File Size - 1.42 MB

Developer Provided Description - "Corrupt Office 2007-2013 Extractor will extract the text/data from corrupt docx, xlsx, and pptx files where the respective MS Office files error out and refuses to open. In advanced mode the program can fix the zip structure of these new "Office Open" format files, a step which I now recommend despite our dissuasive blurb which comes up when you start that function.

Advanced mode also allows recovering images and if you are familiar with XML, includes is a basic XML editor for editing corrupt XML which might be causing the docx, xlsx or pptx corruption."

Supported Software Versions or File Systems - All MS Word Versions Prior 2002

Developer Provided Description - "LASRLITE.EXE is a command line undeleter for lost Word documents on FAT file systems. It designed to run from pure DOS or from a DOS window on Windows 95/98/ME. It does not recover files from NTFS file systems. LASRLITE.EXE is freeware and may be freely distributed, unmodified and in the orignal distribution archive. LASRLITE.EXE is Copyright (c) 2001 by Robert Green. The author reserves all rights."

Comment - With this program, if a Word file gets corrupt, you can undelete all Word files and find an earlier temporary version that Windows stored then deleted. Note, even without the program, you can also look for temporary files with the tmp extension in the directory where Word files are stored by default. The default storage location can be found under Tools -> Options -> File Locations and double click on "Documents". Just change the "tmp" extension to "doc."

Note Bene - Visit Bob Greene's Site. He has a low priced programs for recovering unbootable disks called BootMaster Partition Recovery and also has the nice NTFS browser for DOS that can be used with the same. Freeware makers need to be supported.
