Magic Word Recovery 2.6

Recover Microsoft Word documents and OpenOffice ODT files with ease
2.6 (See all)

Magic Word Recovery is designed to help you recover damaged or erased Microsoft Word files. The application is also compatible with Open Office and WordPad documents. It is capable of recovering the following types of files: DOC, DOCX, RTF, TXT, and ODT from local or removable drives.

Magic Word Recovery uses a wizard that guides you through the recovery process, which makes it accessible to all users. The Magic Word Recovery wizard makes scanning for damaged and deleted files fast and easy. The first step consists in choosing the disk to analyze. Besides, you can choose between a quick and comprehensive scan (Fast scan and Full analysis). The comprehensive search will look in hidden folders, like system files, for automatically saved documents. Additionally, you can set the program to look for files with a specific date or size, which will help you narrow down the search and speed up the process.

The program quickly scans documents and generates a list of recovered files, which you can easily study and see through thumbnails. The program also includes a document viewer that lets you examine the contents of a selected file before saving it. It is also possible to use filters to explore the search results, which will help you quickly find your lost files. Once you've found your documents, you can save them on your hard drive or on an external source.

Magic Word Recovery comes with an unregistered version that shows recovered files, but does not allow you to save them. In order to benefit from the all program's features, you need to buy the full version, which costs $39.95.
