This program will extract the text from some corrupted or all healthy Microsoft Office and Open Office files with the extensions .doc, docx, xls, xlsx, ppt, pptx, odt, ods and odp. It may succeed at doing so where MS Office and Open Office fail to salvage text/data. It can also attempt to recover formatting in the form of a full Open Office file with a regular, odt, ods or odp extension At this time there is no facility for recovering anything but basic formatting for Microsoft Office files.

This program can be used as a viewer of text within healthy MS Office and Open Office files without having them installed and can even act as a rudimentary editor of the recovered text..

An extensive new "Alternatives" menu of additional free resources is included.

This program was previously known as CorruptOffice2Text.

    Algorithm seems to be pretty limited (truncation only), failed to recover document, installer had crapware and mojibake, and the program runs with advertisements and "try paid software". Bizarrely, author seems to also have several projects on sourceforge that are attempts at essentially the same thing. If you need to recover a document, you are far better off trying to see what LibreOffice can do for you.
