Hello there!
After a windows update an open and unsaved file fell victim. The auto recovery only managed to open a couple of lines of text. I managed to recover the .asd and .wbk files but they appear to be corrupted and only a small portion of the text in them is readable - the same part auto recovery showed. The rest appears encoded. Iíve tried changing the encoding and have downloaded multiple file recovery programs, all to no avail - most of them work with .doc or .docx files only anyway.
Do you have a suggestion what might be done to recover the full text of the file? It seems 99% of the advice on the matter online is helping people find said .asd and .wbk files, or placing them in the correct folder, which Iíve tried already. Iíve also tried system restore, but unfortunately my pc doesnt appear to have a restore point (nor does the folder).
Running win 10 and microsoft office 2010.
Iíd appreciate any ideas! Thanks!

If you keep incremental backups, you might still have good copies.
