Before I buy this software, I would like to try it. Is there a demo available?
Yes. The demo version is just as powerful as the full-featured version, and it can demonstrate whether or not SecureRecovery fo Works Word will successfully repair your damaged, corrupted or inaccessible files. We recommend backing up your files, then running the demo and reviewing the results.
Why does the demo only recover a portion of my original text?
The SecureRecovery fo Works Word demo will only recover some of text from your document. After restoring text to its preset limits, it uses demo strings.
You can use the demo output to see what is recoverable (and what is severely damaged). Note that the full-featured SecureRecovery fo Works Word will only restore text and elements represented by the placeholders; in other words, if formatting or another feature is not viewable in the demo, the element will not be recovered by the commercial version of the software.
Recovered Works Word documents seem smaller than the originals. Is this normal?
Yes, this is a normal and expected result of data recovery. Corrupt Words Works documents often have unreadable data which cannot be repaired with software. SecureRecovery fo Works Word will not attempt to recreate these sections of the file, since this will not result in a better recovery. Instead, the section will be left out, and the file size will decrease as a result.
Another reason for size discrepancies is feature support. Some advanced objects (such as OLE objects and charts) cannot be recovered, and when these features are left out, the file size will be smaller. Finally, demo recoveries are usually much smaller than your original corrupt files, since placeholder objects and text will replace some of the elements of the document.
Why should I create a backup before running SecureRecovery fo Works Word?
We always encourage users to back up their files, since this is the best way to allow for additional recovery attempts. While SecureRecovery fo Works Word is a safe program, any attempt at software data recovery could cause file issues under the right circumstances.
How can I run SecureRecovery fo Works Word with the command line, and can I create batch files to make the recovery process easier?
Use this call to run the program from the command line:
When identifying the target file, you can use patterns for unknown or unidentified characters. This will allow you to create batch files that target certain Works Word documents. Use ‘*’ as a representation of a group of characters. Use ‘?’ to represent a single unidentified character. Do not use angle brackets.
Your recovery directory should be created and properly defined before you begin the data recovery process with SecureRecovery fo Works Word.
I need to restore spreadsheets made in Works. Will this program help?
No, this program is only designed for Works Word documents. However, we offer a data recovery utility for Works spreadsheets. Visit our software page for more information or to download a demo.
