Im not sure if this is the right place to post this or not, or honestly where I should post this. But recently there was a computer who someone jacked up and got all kinds of junk on, and I removed most if not all the stuff. The actual problem is that now none of their some 200 + documents are able to be opened. Ive tried all kinds of stuff, any word documents or open office documents, spreadsheets whatever cant be open and if I force it to be opened I get ascii code or garbled nonsense. No matter what the document. Old new whatever. I even tried transferring some documents to other computers and opening them there but nothing seems to work. Is there any way to recover these documents and what may have been the cause to mess up every single file like that. If you wish to redirect me to another forum where this might be more relevant that's fine. I can also provide a few of the documents here if anyone wants to give them a try. Thanks.
