File created in MSWord2013, 54MB, 40 pages of text and 120 images of a family history now lost. 3 years of work. Silly me for not running back ups and not using OneDrive etc. MS online help couldn't really help. They suggested I buy Office, I did, this didn't fix the issue. Error message changed to "Open File with the Text Recovery converter". Anyone know what this is ? If not any ideas on how to fix files please.

@Doug_Robbins_Word_MVP thank you for responding. I have uploaded corrupt file. The file is a Word doc of approx 40 pages of ~120 pics , not a lot of text. Family history stuff. Cheers Chris

A repaired copy of your document has been uploaded to the following folder of my OneDrive
I have also uploaded a copy of the document that has been saved as a pdf file as due to the content of the Word document with images inserted into it with the layout being other than In-line with text, further corruption is likely to occur.
While it wouild be a lot of work, and should be done using a copy of the Word document, my recommendation would be to change the layout of all of the images so that the text wrapping is set to In-line with text, making use of a two column table in those instances where you want images side by side.
Let me know when you have retrieved them so that I can delete them from that folder.

@numeroclintgmailcom If you upload a copy of the document to the following folder of my OneDrive
and post back here to let me know that you have done that, I will see if I can recover your document.

@Doug_Robbins_Word_MVP I have uploaded the documents. One is the raw file, the other is the recovered file. None opens in my PC.
