Recver deleted files from a flash drive

I accidentally deleted important files from my flash drive. I purchased" EaseUS Data Recovery wizard". It was successful in retrieving my files. Unfortunately, the files were unreadable and contained funny HTML like chacracters. Is there a way I cam convert them to readable text? I have 2 Excel files that are must important. How coa I convert them to make them readable?

You really need to recover the data properly so that the application can read it.  Try some free software, like PC File Inspector http://www.pcinspector.de/file_recovery/UK/welcome.htm.  Trying to unscramble data that was improperly recovered is an exercise in futility.

Depending on how important the data is, you can try Getbackdata: www.runtime.org 
It's free to try. You can also check the integrity of the files. You can then opt to buy a license in order to recover the files.

  I was able to retrieve my data using EaseUS Data Recovery, I was not using it properlly. When I corrected my error in using it, the files were recovered readable and intact. Thanks to all of you for your inputs, but I will close out my  request for help.
