How To Recover Word Files

Microsoft Word is the most common word processing application in the world. Whether you’re a student working on a term paper, an activist blogging about your passion, or an entrepreneur working on your next business plan, you’re likely generating multiple Word files a day in pursuit of your goals.  What happens when you can’t find that project you’ve been working on? Thanks to some tools built into the Windows operating systems, and the helpful backup function of Microsoft Word, you typically can find your lost file on your own.  For the times when you can’t, look to data recovery software like ParetoLogic’s Data Recovery Pro to locate and recover your Word files.


How To Recover Word Documents Manually


Like most lost files in Windows, start by looking in the recycle bin. We’ve all accidentally sent important files to the trash once or twice.  The recycle bin can be your one stop shop for lost Word files.


If you can’t find the file in the recycle bin, your next step should be to search your computer in its entirety.  When using Windows’ search, there are a few tips that can make things easier:


  • Don’t be too specific with the file name
  • Don’t specify a file extension
  • Keep your search area broad


Essentially, you want to make sure to be as general as possible with your search criteria. This will give you the best odds of finding the file in question. If you can’t find the file through Windows search, try searching the recently opened documents in Word itself. By opening the file menu recently opened documents can be viewed. If that fails, it’s time to enlist the help of a dedicated data recovery software suite.

Using Word Recovery Software


ParetoLogic’s Data Recovery Pro is a file recovery program that can find lost files, emails, email attachments, and you guessed it, Word documents. Data Recovery Pro exploits the fact that when you “delete” a file; the information isn’t deleted from the hard drive. Instead, the operating system marks the space for the file as available. So long as no new data is written to the Word file’s location, it won’t be overwritten or erased.  If you use the software before the operating system uses that part of the hard disk, the space will get marked as unavailable, and the location will be re-associated with the file name.


Don’t Wait!


Windows uses the hard drive for many of its tasks.  Your lost Word file is at risk of being erased with every activity; as such, you should stop using the computer immediately! Do not turn your computer off before trying to recover the file. Don’t download anything except Data Recovery Pro. Once installed, the software will help you recover your lost Word files, so long as they haven’t been overwritten.


When To Use Data Recovery Pro


  • Word closed without saving a file
  • You can’t remember the name of your Word document
  • The Word file was corrupted by a virus
  • You accidentally deleted the directory where the Word document was stored
  • Microsoft Word crashed before you could name and save your document
  • You want to find a Word document on an external storage device


Losing a Microsoft Word file can be easy; but thanks to software like ParetoLogic’s Data Recovery Pro, recovering the lost Word file can be easy too.  If you can’t find a Word file in the recycle bin or through searching; use Data Recovery Pro.

How To Recover A Deleted Hard Drive

There are multiple reasons entire hard drives are deleted.  Sometimes an operating system is so corrupted that the drive is replaced for fear that there may be bad sectors on the drive. Other times the drive may be deleted from a system accidentally as the case of an attached storage device that an end user had permissions to remove.

Quick use of a good data recovery suite like ParetoLogic’s Data Recovery Pro can often restore a deleted hard drive.

How To Recover Files From A Formatted Hard Drive

How To Recover Recycle Bin

It’s a handy little tool that’s been conveniently located on the desktop since the rollout of Windows 95.  Long time Windows and Mac users alike kindly refer to it as the recycle bin or trash can. This way station for files we are pretty sure we’ll never need again sometimes becomes home to unintended guests. Ordinarily, this is no big deal as files can be restored from the recycle bin. It’s only when a file is permanently removed from the recycle bin that users have cause to worry.  But so long as prompt action is taken, and software like ParetoLogic’s Data Recovery Pro is used the odds of a successful recycle bin recovery are pretty good.


The First Step


The first place you look should look is in the recycle bin itself. Perhaps the file is still there; in which case recovery is a simple matter of selecting the restore file option.  A quick look in the recycle should always be your first stop. If you don’t see the file in the recycle bin, you may have luck finding the file through a general Windows search.  When using Windows’ search, there are a few tricks to increase your odds:


  • Be general about the file location
  • Be general with the file name
  • Don’t specify a file extension


The overriding theme is to be as general as possible about the file search criteria. It’s easier to pare down your search results, than to fail to generate results because of stringent search criteria.

When All Else Fails…


When a general search doesn’t aid in your lost file recovery efforts, immediately look to a file recovery program like ParetoLogic’s Data Recovery Pro. Data Recovery Pro is a software suite that can find and restore lost emails, files, email attachments, and even files on external drives.


Data Recovery Pro works because when you “delete” a file; the information isn’t immediately deleted from the hard drive. What really happens is that the operating system marks the space where that file was located as now being available. Until new information is saved to that location, the old file is still where it was.  If you use Data Recovery Pro before the operating system utilizes that section of the drive, the space will be marked as unavailable, and the file can be recovered.


Don’t Wait!


The hard drive is accessed for nearly everything that happens on your computer.  The longer you use the computer before trying to recover the file, the greater the likelihood the file has already been overwritten. In other words, STOP USING YOUR COMPUTER. Do not cycle the power to your computer before trying to recover the recycle bin. Your next move should be to download recycle bin recovery software like Data Recovery Pro. After you’ve installed the software a simple user interface and powerful search algorithms allow for high recovery success rates.


When To Use Data Recovery Pro


  • When you accidentally “empty” your recycle bin
  • When you can’t find your file in the recycle bin
  • To recover your recycle bin
  • To access files than may have been lost through the recycle bin
  • When you accidentally sent an important email or attachment to the “trash”
  • To recover deleted Outlook contacts


We keep all kinds of important information on our computers. All it takes is one mistake to lose that information forever; unless of course you follow the steps above and use ParetoLogic’s Data Recovery Pro.

How To Recover Deleted Files

We’ve all done it. We’ve been working all week on an important project for work, only to lose the file the night before we’re scheduled to make our big presentation. Or maybe you took hundreds of photos of a friend’s wedding, and then accidentally deleted them. And then there’s the important email message that you swore was in your inbox last time you were on your PC. As we become more comfortable with the use of digital media, it’s increasingly important that computer users understand how to recover deleted files.


How to Recover Deleted Files Manually


The first step to locating missing files should be to check in the recycle bin.  Errant keystrokes can inadvertently send important files to the trash.  A quick look in the recycle bin can sometimes reveal the missing file.


If the file isn’t in the recycle bin, the next step is to search your computer in its entirety for the file.  When using Windows’ resident search function, there are a few considerations one should take:


  • Are you spelling the file name correctly?
  • Are you specifying the correct file extension?
  • Are you searching in the right place?


While these are simple questions, their answers can have a profound impact on your success.  Make sure to be as general as possible about the file name. It’s easier to sift through a list of possible matches, than to omit results because of overly-specific search criteria.  Additionally, specify searching the entire computer.  You may have inadvertently moved the file, or it may have been in a temporary folder because the user forgot to save the file after it was created.  By searching the entire computer, the odds of success are greatly improved.

Outlook Express Recovery

Outlook Express RecoveryFor many home and small office users, the expense of running Microsoft Outlook isn’t justifiable.  In response to this, Microsoft developed Outlook Express.  While the software offers a look and feel similar to Microsoft Outlook; Outlook Express is completely different from an architecture point of view.  Outlook Express uses a .dbx file to store various folders on the user’s hard disk.  These folders are then stored in a hidden store folder.

Digital Photo Recovery

It’s happened to all of us. We take our camera out to capture a few photos and when we get around to printing them or viewing them, they are nowhere to be found. Worse yet, imagine spending thousands of dollars to take the trip of a lifetime, buying a new camera and storage media specifically to document the trip, and create lasting memories; then upon returning home, not being able to see or find any of the images because of corrupted storage media.

Luckily Stellar Phoenix offers their suite of photo recovery software which allows users to recover lost or accidentally deleted photos from a variety of sources.
