Hi guys
I need your help.

I am trying to recover Word (.doc) deleted files. I am using 'Multi stage Recovery' program. This program recovers the deleted Word .doc files but they all look as if they are encrypted or encoded.
I tried other programs to undelet but no success. The recovered files still look encrypted or encoded.
Hoe can I convert or decode these files so that the are readable in Word (.d0c)?

many thanks

I presume you checked the `Recycle` bin for the files before you went ahead with this software?

Also you don`t say whether the files were encrypted in the first place.

I know nothing of MultiStage Recovery software, but would suggest you contact the Technical Support click here if you continue with difficulties. They do say their software is simple to use and has a built in preview system.

I tried Multi-Stage Recovery this morning (todays Giveawayoftheday) and was not overly impressed.
Have a try with Recuva:
