Wow - New Editor Opens Some Corrupt DOCX Files that Word and WordPad Won't Open

http://www.freeeditor.com - I don't know if I have made this clear enough but WordPad will open some corrupt docx files that MS Word will not. This new to me freeware editor of many many file types apparently opens the same ones WordPad will open, plus some additional ones. Bear in my mind that DOCX Salvager, S2 Services Word Recovery, Savvy Word Recovery and MS and Open Office Salvager open the same and more files but this new program is impressive.

Interestingly it is not just an editor for Word, in my tests it will open some corrupt Excel files too, but these are also repaired at least by Excel 2013 and 2010 too. Excel 2010 and 2013.

Get it while it is still free. It might not last forever.

Here is a blurb about the program and the unbelievable amount of file types supposedly editable (PowerPoint doesn't seem to work yet though it is in their list): "Free Editor is a free piece of software which will allow you to open and edit many different types of files on Windows PC's. It supports most document formats such as .docx, .doc, .epub, .odt, .xls, .xlsx and many more. It includes high performance features like a spell checker, printing capabilities as well as power editing features like hex and resource editors."
