Savvy Corrupt DOCX Recovery, automatically recovers corrupt docx files. The program automatically uses four different progressively more basic algorithms until the final method hopes only to recover text, no formatting. Docx files are in reality zipped collections of mainly concentrated in the document.xml file. If it is partially corrupt, for instance ending with inappropriate XML tags, Word will often not open the docx. Savvy Word Recovery will remove or reorder the corrupt xml from the document.xml, automatically add the correct ending tags if needed and try to open the resulting docx document with the possibly truncated text. If other xml files such as the styles.xml file are corrupt, Word will also sometimes also refuse to open the file. Savvy Corrupt DOCX Recovery knows to fix these ancillary to the main document.xml files as well. Afterwords, Word will often then be able to open the docx file. Finally the program also has a shortcut to the effective commercial program WordFix, made by the corrupt file recovery company with which I have the best affiliate relationship. WordFix and this program differs from Corrupt MS Office Extractor and Corrupt Office Salvager from below in that they are sometimes able to recover formatting as well as the text. I also do manual recoveries for $22 only if I succeed to your satisfaction.
: Perfect for online scripts and services needing text or data extraction from both corrupt or healthy docx, xlsx or pptx files. Coded by Ccy, author of HaHa Zip and using Delphi Zip, CMD Corrupt OfficeOpen2Txt will often recover text from corrupt "Office Open XML" format files where the respective Microsoft Office 2007, 2010 or 2013 programs cannot salvage the text or data. Office Open format files are zipped collections of XML files. There are two kinds of corruption of these types of files, zip structure corruption and XML corruption. This program deals with both. The unzipping module used in Office 2007 - 2013, is more finicky than DelphiZip module used by CMD Corrupt OfficeOpen2Txt. Thus the collection of files making up the docx, xlsx or pptx file can be extracted as raw material for data/text extraction in the programs 2nd stage. MS Office doesn't even get this far sometimes. In regards to XML corruption, the format is by design a very unforgiving medium for file damage. From the errors returned from attempts at salvaging the text from Office 2007 - 2013 it appears Microsoft is using a fairly standard interpreter of XML even when encountering corruption. CMD Corrupt OfficeOpen2Txt on the other hand does not get hung up by so call XML issues of "well formedness".
: Corrupt PPTX Salvager is based on Pptx to Text converter by Sopan Shewale. This projects differs from Sopan's project because it starts with a zip repair step using the -FF repair command with InfoZip's zip.exe open source command line app and it uses a different unzipper.Corrupt PPTX Salvager uses 7zip, an unzipper that's relatively more impervious to zip corruption than PowerPoint's built in one seems to be. PPTX files seem to have zip corruption as their biggest cause of not opening. 7zip is able to extract the xml slide files from the pptx where PowerPoint 2007, 2010 and 2013 sometimes fail to deal with corruption. Furthermore Sopan designed Pptx to Text and PPTX Salvager uses regular expressions to extract the text from the XML slide files rather than the stricter XML reading routines that PowerPoint appears to be using. So sometimes when PowerPoint signals an unreadable XML error, this programs still extract useful text. If the program fails, try Recoveronix' Online File Repair service.

: This program uses the same methods as Corrupt Office Salvager for recovering Open Office text and format. It will possibly recover some formatting for Open Office Files as by doing surgery on the styles.xml file. If that doesn't work it uses SilverCoder's DocToText to try to recover the text.If the program fails, try the Recoveronix' Online File Repair Service.

This program will extract the text even from damaged or corrupted Microsoft Office and Open Office files 2.X and 3.X files with the extensions .doc, docx, xls, xlsx, ppt, pptx, odt, ods and odp as well as possibly the template and macro variants of these extensions such as dot, xlt and pps if they are changed to the correct corresponding extensions mentioned. It may succeed at doing so where MS Office Open Office itself fails to salvage text. It can also attempt to recover formatting in the form of a full Open Office file with a regular, odt, ods or odp extension. At this time unfortunately there is no facility for recovering anything but basic formatting for MS Office files through the previously mentioned text extractions, although there are other programs on this page that will. This program can be used as a viewer of text within healthy MS Office and Open Office files without having MS Office or Open Office installed. The text extraction is accomplished with the use of the command line application, SILVERCODERS DocToText. The program also uses command line tools from CMD Corrupt OfficeOpen2txt, The Chicago and the Apache Tika Projects to extract data and text from MS Office version 97 - 2013 format files. The reconstructed version of the Open Office file is accomplished by unzipping the Open Office file with the somewhat zip corruption immune 7zip unzipper. Once unzipped, the manifest/manifest.xml file is replaced with a greatly simplified version as described here: http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=57600. If this application doesn't work for Open Office files, there are other things worth trying as summarized here: http://s2services.com/open_office.htm. If it doesn't work for MS Word files, try here: http://s2services.com/word_repair.htm. If it doesn't work for Excel files look at other alternative steps here: http://s2services.com/excel.htm.
