Microsoft recommends methods for recovering corrupt Word files that won't open. This software provides buttons to easily invoke these as well as providing 5 independent methods for recovering and opening corrupt Microsoft Word DOC & DOCX files.

Additionally the program provides links to two pieces of freeware not coded by the author, a free service (if you can wait 14 days!) and a featured commercial solution (which is an affiliate of the author's).

Also it has its own native previous file version recovery tool which works in any version of Windows, Vista-Windows 10 if System Protection has been turned on in the System App of the Control Panel and a Restore Point made. Another feature is a GUI interface for finding temporary, deleted and lost versions of corrupt files.

Future plans are to implement Microsoft's instructions for recovering corrupt Word files that will open.

This program was formerly known as Word Recovery and more recently S2 Services Word Recovery
