Couple days ago I was working with my doc files and unexpectedly something happened. And all of them were lost. I didn't know what to do next,but to my good fortune called a friend up and he advised me - word was unable to read this document 2007. This software solved my issue for seconds and absolutely free I was astonished. Moreover the tool demonstrated me how it exports recovered content into a new file in Microsoft Word format.
