Office Recovery Program Overview
Recover latest versions of deleted documents even after a hard drive failure with Office Recovery.
Unlike general-use undelete and data recovery tools, Office Recovery benefits from being designed to handle documents stored in Microsoft Office format.
General-use tools scan the computer's file system in order to locate files that were deleted or corrupt because of a hard drive failure. However, they fail to work properly if the file system is damaged, which happens a lot after hard drive failures.
The file system is also scanned in order to retrieve the names of the files. The results of the disk scan are matched against information contained in the file system, and you are presented with a complete list of all documents that are on the disk and that are still possible to recover.
Often you don't want to see the list of all Microsoft Office documents that are on your computer. There's no point in spending time scrolling through an endless list of files if you need the latest revision of a PPT presentation or an XLS spreadsheet right away.
If you need a DOC file that you worked with today, simply activate the File Format and Date filters, and only the Word documents that were saved today will be displayed.
If you don't remember the name of the file, but know its title or the person who created the document, the Title and Author filters will show you those files. Similarly, if you only remember a line or even a few words of text from the document, you can instantly locate that particular file by activating the Text filter.
