Corrupted Files, Fix or Recover?

  1. While saving a microsort word document to memory stick using microsoft works the program started not responding and shutdown. The file i was trying to save it as was not created and the original file i was working on became corrupt and will not open. Would it be better to try and fix my corrupt file or would my I be able to recover the file I was saving too? What would be the best way of doing this?

    To fix the corrupt file I have tried using Microsoft Text Recovery and that only returned 4000+ pages of code. The same thing happened while i previewed it in Docrepair. Are there any other ways of finding this file or is it completely lost.

    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    the image on the flash drive is totally suspect and the last good doc was the original.

    Try to recover it and SAVE AS another name.
