Hi there

I am trying to recover a word document that I seem to have changed to a PWC7 file?

Never heard of this or what it is about???

Can some help or change it back into word?

(file can be found in the link... )

    I can't find anything about a .pwc7 file extension that is viable from a google search.

    I've tried to convert the file etc but without any success.  There is isn't much content in the file though - a total of 2004 charactors.  There are a couple of paths in it to your desktop and a txt file

    CC:\Users\Ralph.Heijmer\Desktop\New folder\Ralph Personal Notes.docx
    C:\Program Files\PasswordTools\wordlist.txt

    but besides that not a great deal of other text that can be accessed.  Did the file contain graphics?

    no just text....

    I managed to overwrite a file with a blank word document and was hoping this might be a backup file...

    any idea's? (Windows 7)

    Here is the content in unicode, whatever it is there is very little information there at all in the file.  I can not get this into any other file structure for you.  I've tried various conversions but to no avail.
