Document Recovery From 7-Zip-Archived Word-File

Q: Document Recovery From 7-Zip-Archived Word-File

Hi,

I was working on a document that was located in a zip archive. I have 7-zip installed on my computer. I?m running Windows 8. I repeatedly saved the file in Word while I was working on it. However, I?ve since rebooted the computer and my file is missing. All of the ?saves? I?ve made didn?t seem to update the file in the archive. I understand that I should have extracted the file first before working on it; however, I received no prompt from Word 2013 that my saves were not being recorded. Perhaps the file was saved into some sort of temporary folder/file that 7-zip creates/works from.

Are my changes lost permanently? Does there exist a temporary file somewhere with my changes in it?

Thank you. This is a court document and I made substantial modifications to it, and I really need it back.

Preferred Solution: Document Recovery From 7-Zip-Archived Word-File

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Success! I ran [email protected] File Recovery (an undelete program) and scanned for the document name. Interestingly, the document name matched the original document name in the archive, and wasn't some random file name like "SHF75J.tmp". I recovered the file to a flash drive. I'm very happy now.

It may be in the drafts folder. This will, by default vary according to which Word version.
But, across the versions, open the Options in Word and find the save option. In the window which opens, it will list your various save locations for the variety of Word you are using.
Alternatively, if you know the name of the file, how about a search?

I lost the entire contents of the My Documents folder when my system admin changed my login domain. Not sure why because the folder was on my hard drive, but whatever.

I ran System Mechanic 5 Professional and recovered most of them. My admin also installed Office 2003, upgrading from 2000. OS is XP.

I recovered the documents to a server instead of to my hard drive. The jpg, pdf, and gif files are fine, but the doc and xls files are not. When I try to open them, some work, but most look like code.

I've tried opening a new file and inserting the old file, copying and pasting into a new file being sure not to copy the final return, saving as an rtf. Nothing works. I tried Word's "recover text from any file" feature. Nada. I downloaded the demo version of Office Recovery's "Word Recovery" program, but then I just get a file with the word "demo" where the boxes were.

Any ideas?

Yes, your sysadmin needs to move the files from your old user to your new user accounts... I don't really know anything about it 'cause I'm not on a network but definitely one of the symptoms opening files of "another user" is gobbledygook.

I recently used Easeus data recovery pro to recover a book this guy was writing. He was using microsoft works to write his book. Upon trying to burn it to cd it suddenly dissapeared on him. I was able to bring the raw file back but they came back as word documents, (.doc) and not .wps extension that he was used to. Now it comes up when opening in word and in works, all jargon, stating this program could not be run in DOS mode, and wants me to select which encoding. My question is, are the files in any way repairable; being as they were corrupted during his attempt in burning them to disc and just simply disapeared. I have been at this for days and hate to keep spinning my wheels if this task is impossible.

I'm working on a Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server. We have 9 users in our office connect to this server to do everything they need to do. All users are having the same problem. There were some documents that got saved to the auto-recovery (this was several months ago). Since that time, every time we open a word doc, it shows the auto-recovery list on the left. when we close Word it asks:
"The document recovery task pane contains some recoverd files that have not been opened. Would you like to view these files the next time you start Word?"
Yes, I want to view these files OR
No, remove the files, I have saved the files I need.

We click NO to remove the files, hit OK and it tells us it "can't delete the file, can't read from the source file or disk.". then we have to click OK 6 times for each file that is in the auto-recovery pane on the left.

Any idea how to make this go away??

I have a client with a problem creating new documents from the File > New > Word Document dropdown from Windows Explorer window. If I set her default font to Times New Roman it will stay for creating new documents from within Word. If she goes the other route mentioned above to create a new document it will always default to Courier. Also when she tries to save the document with the Save As item it defaults to txt instead of a .doc file. I am thinking there are two different templates for these two seperate ways of opening or creating a document.

Hi all,

I am running Windows XP Media Center with SP2 on an HP Pavillion a1610n. It is configured with two user accounts. One for me, one for the kids.

Yesterday I was working on a Word Document, I saved it to My Documents (in my account) and stepped away from the computer. When I returned a few hours later my daughter had somehow caused the pc to go into recovery mode and windows was reset. she claims it was a "Non Destructive" recovery.

After running through the recovery we found 3 things:

1) Both User accounts had been deleted (makes sense since Windows as reset) and a default HP_Administrator account was created.

2) The Kids User Folder under c:\\documents and settings has dissapeared (mine was still there)

3) The two Word Documents that I had worked on that day had DISSAPEARED!! <--- HELP!

A few things to note...I don't know what my daughter was doing, she claims she was logged into the kids accoutn and opened an email and Poof, magically the PC went into receovery mode. I'm guessing Virus or Spyware.

I have rebuilt my user accoutn and moved all my files over into it so my desktop is back the way it was etc...I've also installed Windows "Everything" Search (great tool btw) and scanned the pc from top to bottom. There is no sign of my files. Even a Data Recovery attempt using Disk Doctor didnt find the file.

if at all possible, data could be recovered by a specialist. not some type of software you would install unless you feel like spending a couple of grand. if you live in a metropolitan area you should be able to find one. they'll end up attaching your drive to a machine loaded with data recovery software which can pick up fragments in worst case and full file if you're in luck. issue is how many times has the drive written new data over where the old data was on the platter. too many writes and its gone forever.1 write or no write just a lost link and you could be in luck. by the way its not cheap so dont think of finding some bargain. last time i sent someone to a data recovery firm it cost them 300 bucks. so is your data worth it.? good luck

A:converting PDF file to Word Document formant

If its been scanned in as a PDF, then its just a "photo" of the page.

You need to use OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software to convert a scanned image to a document. Such software (Textbridge, Iris etc) usually comes with the scanner, but do not expext miricles with it.

Having the PC decide exactly what part of the scanned image is text, what is an image and correctly decode it to the relevant parts is complex and "consumer variety" OCR is usually less than perfect.

If the PDF is in electronic format (prior to being printed and scanned) software exists that will convert it directly to text (I use Solid Converter PDF) but this approach only works where the person creating the PDF has allowed such activities.

Try refining this symptom description.  What exactly do you mean by "it won't open"?  Answering that might explain why you are posting this in an IE forum.  E.g. right-click, Copy Shortcut whatever it is that you are calling
a "broken link" and Paste it here.
Otherwise, try right-click, Save target as... to put the file into your Downloads (Ctrl-j) and then use right-click, Properties to find its

Next I suspect that the Set Associations GUI tool may not be showing you the correct information.  FWIW it certainly doesn't show me the correct information in W8.1.  So, I would try checking if you have an explicit association and file type combination
by using the assoc and ftype commands in a cmd window.  In fact, instead of just showing the ftype for the current association I would use this:

When saving a Word 2007 document as a webpage (htm, html), an extra folder is automatically created besides the hmtl document itself. This folder contains background information like pictures, wallpaper etc. Is there a way to prevent that folder from being created in the first place? I've got Word 2000 on another computer, and when I save my word documents as html files over there, that extra folder is not generated. The only time that folder is created in 2000 is if my documents contain pictures, wallpaper etc. In Word 2007, it is created all the time, even though my documents are just plain text.
 

A:Solved: Word 2007, saving document as html document: how to get rid of extra folder?

Managed to find the solution, it was very simple after all. One has to save the document as a filtered webpage and click "yes" when a box pops up warning you that you will use certain featuers which are specific to Office2007, such as the background. Then the document will save without that extra folder and files.

I have two questions regarding documents created in Word 2007...

1) Can links be created within a Word document? For example, can I click on and item my table of contents and have the document jump to that particular section of the document?

2) Also, is there a way to make sections of the document hidden until the user clicks a specific word or graphic in the document?

I'd like to specify a particular instruction and include a "Show example" link that would make a detailed example appear for those who needed the extra help.

Thanks everyone!

A:Word 2007 - Links within a document? Hide/Show sections of a document?

If you created table of contents through References - Table of Contents, you can hold Ctrl and click on the item in that table, word will take you there. This feature is standard.

Also, to navigate inside document you can use bookmark option.
Insert bookmarks. Word 2010 Bookmarks
Then insert Hyperlink - in the window select second tab "Place in This Document" and choose your bookmark.

As for hiding parts of document, I do not think that is possible.
You can create that in HTML document with javascript, but not in Word document.

I use a variety of templates and plain documents in my work and can not pin point it to one template.

If you leave Word open with a document (no matter what size) and come back to it later this is when the problem happens. I started to get around it my saving first then closing, but this no longer works. The save completes and then I select Close and this is when it happens - you get the dreaded pause and then you hear the whirl of the computer and then you get the Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close.

This might be kind of tricky.

We're trying to streamline our RFQ-to-Quote process, which currently utilizes a combination of digital forms and hand-written forms passed among several departments. My boss asked me to modify the RFQ form to save him some typing (because he has to retype all the information in the final Quote), and I--not understanding the complexity of the process--very stupidly told him that it could be done fairly simply using form fields and bookmarks. He's been kind enough to grant me a lot of leniency because for him anything would be better than the current situation, so as long as I can improve on what we use now, he'll be happy.

I thought about creating form templates for each of the departments, then as the original RFQ circulated from one department to the next subsequent forms would be appended to it to create a rolling document. I'm not too happy with the that idea; there's all sorts of room for user error. I thought about creating a single document template containing every department's form, but a) I don't want any single department to be able to modify information gathered during another department's process, and b) certain departments must generate a variable number of copies of their form.

I told my boss the best way to accomplish a secure and low-maintenance RFQ-to-Quote would be to create a stand-alone Quote Generator application, but we both agree the effort is not condusive to the timeframe by whic... Read more

Hi all.

The other day whilst in the throws of fixing another unrelated problem I came across a strange and annoying Word Document problem.

When I bought this word document up it present a very unusual icon. It was grayed out and part of the title contained a ~$ then the name of the document.

When I tried to open it, the word document only opened up to the gray page just before it should turn white displaying the text, and there it froze.

Nothing worked after that! The freeze was so bad that the only way to close the window was to turn the computer off at the tower.

After rebooting I tried it again 2 more times with the same problem freeze occurring in the Word document.

Today I again found another document that caused the same problem, this time the icon for that document was normal but right beside this icon was another malformed grayed out ~$(name) icon.

When I tried to open either of the 2 icons I got the same freezing up problem, just as before.

I tried a previously suggested step in that I opened "Word" and from there navigated to where the bad files were located.

In turn I only hi-lighted each, and at the bottom of that window clicked on the arrow for the drop down box.

I was advised that one of the presented options was to repair the file. No such option was present.

So there you have it. Any advice on this problem please?

Regards

A:[SOLVED] Word document freezes computer and document is corrupted

Hi all.

Just to advise that I am going to mark this topic as Solved......to a fashion so to speak.
I may resurrect it at a later stage if the problem re-presents it's self.

In a nut shell. I spent a lot of time today searching sites and performing tests including searches on my computer program.

I ascertained that all the aforementioned "defective " Word documents originated in the same folder. After performing several search functions with the criteria as ~$.doc no other such files were found on my computer, other that the already mentioned.

All tests suggested would not repair the said documents.

I have now deleted the offenders and I will monitor the situation. If I run into problems again I will re-post.

Thanks anyway.
Regards

Hi,

I work at a small non-profit and we have updated two computers with new computers running Windows 7. We use MS Word 2003. I have checked all threads on forum related to this issue, but nothing seems to correct our problem. I would be grateful for any help.

Description of issue: With a Word document open, one should be able to click "File" > "Send To" > Mail Recipient As Attachment", or any of the other mail options, and have the email composition window of Thunderbird pop up. What happens is that Word is attempting to send the attachment via Windows Live Mail. The computer basically freezes. If you try and abort or get out of Word, and error pops up stating you can't close Word until the email has been sent. Finally, you have to force a shut down of the computer.

Internet Explorer shows Thunderbird as default email client. I have check all of the other obvious places for setting the default email client, but I can't seem to find a conflict anywhere on the computer showing Windows Live Email as default client.

As a side note, this employee was using Outlook Express as their email client prior to the computer upgrade and all setting were imported into Windows Live Mail, which was initially used. The employee did not like Windows Live Mail, so I installed Thunderbird. It is used as the default email client and the only issue has been with Word. Additionally, I know that the document could be sent from Windows Explorer by right-cli... Read more

I have several .ost and .pst files in an Outlook archive file. I need to
look in the ost files to find an attachment to an email from a couple of
years ago. How can I open/read that file?

A:How do I open an archived ost file?

If you have Outlook, then one of the folders is Archive and everything is searchable and readable.
If no Outlook, then take a peek at some of the links in google search, for instance
http://www.freeviewer.org/ost/
http://www.ostviewer.com/
http://www.coolutils.com/OutlookViewer
but before downloading and running, make sure to check at virustotal and watch out for additional bloatware in the installers.
 
I'm not familiar with any of them since I have Outlook.

I'm creating a document in word 2007 at one point of the document I want to insert a link or icon that points to a separate word document, when the master document is saved both documents are saved as one file so that i can distribute it to other people not linked on a LAN. I don't need the second document to be seen but launched on a separate window when the link or icon is clicked.
Can somebody please help I've seen this on emails and PP presentations but I'm not sure if it can be done in word, I would think so!

Thank

Hi All,

My Girlfriend has just rung me up to tell me that she's lost a Word file!
Basically she opened a word file that was an attachment from a gmail account worked on it all day whilst clicking "save" instead of save as thinking that it was saving perfectly well. She then closed Word only to find that of course she could no longer access the most recent version of her file.
Panic ensued!!

I told her to open a command prompt and type the following dir herfilename*.doc /s /a /p
she did this and can only find a not so recent version of the file i.e. one which was saved before the final version the weird thing being that it seems to display the time that it was created as very close to that which she created the final version, if that makes sense?

As far as I can tell this means her recent version doesn't exist but does anyone know of another way to get the file back? We have tried all the usual, looking for auto recovery files and temporary files etc without any success.

Any help would be very much appreciated this is a very important document for a Uni project. Thanks in advance for any help.

cannot quite remember how this goes but if assuming startup is in classic mode,go to start>my documents,and i think there may be recent files there,could be wrong not been on XP for a while

I accidentally saved a different file over the one I was working on. The original was on a floppy. I did open it with XP and 2003 prior to looking at another file. I then "stupidly" saved the second file over top of my original. Is there a way to undo the save and return to my original doc?
