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...  http://www.disco-magic.co.uk/Notes.pwc7 )

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?

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.
