Well, folks, I spoke a bit too quickly, I guess. I was able to undelete my files, and most of them read quite beautifully. However, I have run into a couple of files where Word says the files may be corrupted and suggests I open them and use a text recovery converter on them. Where can I find such a program? Also, one file asks me if I want to make Word my default web editor, and it was done in Word, not HTML. Finally, another file wants to know which encoding I want to use to make the text readable. As I said, most of the files have been recovered beautifully. Any further suggestions? I did restore my system to last week, but it did not recover any of the deleted files. Thanks for any help.
