Hi

I wonder whether anyone could assist, I had issue with Laptop not booting so found this great tool, I was able to get into my c drive and copy all my folders and files onto an external drive.

However I am not unable to open any of them, they all seem to be corrupt in some way or another, word, pdf, txt files. Nothing opens at all. I have other files not copied from the laptop that open correctly.

Does anyone have any ideas what I may need to do to recover the files.

Appreciate any assitance.

Dave

Hi

Thanks for replying, to be honest cannot really remember, I think it came up with magic (Not sure for certain). Will have to run CD again and will let you know.

Txt files open, nothing else though.

Thanks
Dave
