    Word document showing codes?

    Dear experts

    I was working with my document and after a reboot the document no longer showable. Using office 2010, Word 2010, and when I open the file it shows alots codes like this:

    ;C PEZ‹c]8#
    Vs K@ 6.ƒe
    cY‚ܫ– fuz 3
    796ٳd*LTŒ

    I thought it was encoding problem so I check all the encodings that Word got but no luck... and I tried to save to txt file, this didnt work as well. I also tried to using recover/repair and see if that work, but still no luck. Any ideas?

    Thx

    The content you've posted indicates that the document has suffered serious corruption. This is especially likely to occur if you work on documents stored on USB drives and don't go through the safe eject/remove process before unplugging them. Documents suffering such corruption are usually unrecoverable and restoring from a known good backup is the best (only) solution in cases like that.
