Re: suggestions for software

Hi. IrfanView has a batch processor for images, but I'm not sure it
will work with data recovery. If possible you could run this program
against the unreconstructed disk image:http://www.clarity.net/~adam/
recoverpix.html
. You can also try somehow to make one big file out of
all your images and then run the program against the big "image".
It's a good intro to Perl too.
As for Word documents, there are perhaps severasl options. This new
freeware program does not have batch processing yet, but works very
quickly one at a time to do text extraction:
http://www.saveofficedata.com/hosted-files/crword_extractor.zip. Even
though it doesn't say so, if you choose the drop down file type of
"All files" it will open Excel 2007 spreadsheets and Powerpoint 2007
files.
The commercial solutions for "batch processing" Word recovery, might
be http://www.dposoft.net/#b_dochid (they also have an Excel version)
and RecoverMyFiles (http://www.recovermyfiles.com/).

This might be a similar freeware for Word 97-2003 files: http://www.s2services.com/hosted-freeware/lasrlite.zip.
Additionally included in the freeware Word text recovery program,
Damaged docx2txt is the source from which you can create your own
batch processor of text extraction from Word. Additionally, here is a
link for as of now, a yet to be released version of doctotext:
http://www.saveofficedata.com/hosted-files/doctotext-20090712-x86-win32.tar.gz.
You could create your ow batch processor.
