    Office documents are corrupted after recovery


    Experts,

    I have recovered my Office documents (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) by a data recovery application. It recovered file successfully but now, they are corrupt. I have around 79 files.
    Please suggest me.

    I need more information. On which data storage device did you restore the information? What program was used to restore? What settings did you use the program with? Have any data been recorded on the data storage device before recovery?

    What program did you use to do the recovery? If you had activity writing to the drive and it overwrote in the locations that those files were sitting, even though they were marked as deleted, you will get corruption.

    I recovered the data from the recovery tool. After recovery, I found office documents corrupted. Now I fixed the files using a software (Stellar Toolkit for File Repair).
