Hello everyone, I keep getting this error message when I try and open an important file on my c: drive. This is the original copy. This started happening after I emailed it to someone (they can not open it either). Is there any way to recover this? I have already tried opening it up using "open and repair" but I get the same thing. This is an extremely important document so any help would be greatly appreciated!! Word experienced an error trying to open the file. Try these suggestions. *Check the file permissions for the document or drive *Make sure there is sufficient free memory and disk space *Open the file with the Text Recovery converter.
