Sorry, that didn't come through well. What problem do you get when trying to open the file? I have set Notepad++ to be the default for txt files, so when I doubleclick on the file it just opens it.

The problem is that with recovery you often get just file fragments, and it looks like the above two are such fragments and not complete files. You would have to examine each fragment you find, try to decide what fragments fit together and how, and then also add any missing parts yourself. That's lots of work and time, and the result can still be inadequate. Also I don't have any experience with blackberries.

The reason I asked whether it was after a chkdsk is that chkdsk, when run on a fat partition, very often creates a folder with files inside which are just fragments.

If you were able to read it using notepad ++ you should have accepted my comment where I mentioned that tool.
