'Windows ANSI' file or corrupt?
Posted on 2004-03-27
Recently, I lost my email messages and tried to recover them with DBXtract. This program found 58 emails and converted them to text files named 'NoSubject(1).txt' thru 'NoSubject(58).txt'. When I open these files in 'Word Perfect 10' it would say 'convert file format from ANSI Windows Text' and proceed to open the file. The problem is that when the file is opened, it's unreadable.
The average file has strings of characters like this.....
Are these files corrupt or is there a way to read them?
