How to recover Office Document Files


Documents such as Word files, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, Access databases and a wide range of other titles are among the most valuable to their users. Unlike photographs that can be snapped in an instant, it takes a lot of time to create a document. And it only takes a single moment to lose it.

http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-0_1.jpg

Undeleting Document Files

Accidentally deleting an important document (*.doc, *.docx, *.pdf), presentation (*.ppt) or spreadsheets (*.xls, *.xlsx) can happen to anyone. End of a working day or a busy week can and do lead to human errors, making people delete documents instead of archiving or sending them.
Fortunately, recovering a deleted file is fairly simple if you act fast. If you deleted a document, Windows will not actually erase its content. Instead, the system will simply mark its record in the file system as "deleted", allowing you to reverse this operation with a proper tool.

Safety Data Recovery

To undelete a document, download Hetman Uneraser. However, it's best if you can use another PC do download the product, as writing anything, including the data recovery program, to the disk that contains deleted files may actually overwrite their content, making the files unrecoverable.
After downloading the tool, install it onto a disk other than one that contains the deleted files. If you have no such disk, use a USB flash drive. Run Hetman Uneraser and perform a quick disk scan. More often than not, you'll see your file in the list after a brief moment. If the file you deleted does not appear in the list, you'll have to run the full scan. The complete scanning of your hard disk may take a while to complete, as the tool will be analyzing all sectors on your hard drive in order to locate deleted documents even if they no longer appear in the file system.
When you see your file in the list, you can click on it to see a preview. Sometimes you'll see multiple copies of the same file. The preview will help you pick the least damaged one or the latest copy saved.

Corrupted or Formatted Disk

If your documents are stored on a disk that's been damaged, corrupted, accidentally formatted or repartitioned, you'll need a different tool. Download Hetman Partition Recovery from site. This tool will be able to scan the damaged disk in order to locate all document files that are still available.
With formatted, repartitioned and corrupted disks, the quick scan mode is of little use. More often than not you'll be better served by the slower full scan mode. The rest of the process is very similar to that described for Hetman Uneraser.

A Word on SSD Drives

If your documents were stored on an SSD drive, your chances of getting them back are rather low. SSD's employ a number of techniques to improve their performance and longevity, basically cleaning up everything that's been deleted. If you format an SSD drive, it'll physically erase data, making the files unrecoverable. If you delete a file, the TRIM command will clean up disk space that was used by that file. There's little hope with SSD drives, but there are important exceptions:
  • Exception 1: if your SSD drive became damaged or corrupted, the garbage collection algorithms will not engage, and the actual content of the disk will remain recoverable. Use Hetman Partition Recovery to scan the disk and recover the documents.
  • Exception 2: if your SSD drive was connected via a USB cable at the time it was formatted or a document was deleted, the TRIM command will not be issued, and your files will remain recoverable. Use Hetman Uneraser or Hetman Partition Recovery to recover the documents.
  • Exception 3: if you were using the SSD drive with a version of Windows older than Windows 7 (e.g. Windows XP or Vista), the TRIM command will not be issued, and the files will remain recoverable.

Deleting files


Im assuming you want to delete browsing history. You can go to Internet options in the control panel and delete browsing history there but to completely remove history files you need to delete the index.dat file.

This file, if you're using windows XP can be found in different places:
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Cookies\index.dat
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\History\History.IE5\index.dat
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\History\History.IE5\MSHistXXXXXXXXXXX\index.dat
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\index.dat
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\UserData\index.dat
If you are using a different operating system, just search for index.dat and make note of the locations.

Once you've noted where the locations are you need to restart the computer and log in using safe mode. In safe mode pull up a cmd screen by going to start>run> then type cmd and hit enter.

In the cmd screen change directory by using the command cd C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\UserData for example and then del index.dat (to delete the index.dat file).

Restart and you're good to go.

Can't scan multiple pages into single document - reinstalled drivers but still can't - used to be able to. How do I fix this?


http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/…

I think this says you need Professional Mode rather than Full Auto Mode.

Under File Save Settings in the Professional Mode, you should see buttons for Add Page / Edit Page / Safe File.

Basically, you keep adding pages then finish.

If you already have multiple .pdf files that you wish to combine, Acrobat Professional (not READER) can do that.

Good luck,

I copied the text but I think you won't be able to see the images here:

4. Select PDF as the file type setting. The current Paper Size, Orientation, Margin, and Compression setting are displayed below it.

5. If you need to change any of the current PDF settings, click the Options button. You see the EPSON PDF Plug-in Settings window:


Select the settings that match your document and click OK. You return to the File Save Settings window.
6. When you are finished selecting file settings, click OK. Epson Scan scans your page and displays this window:


7. If you are scanning only one document page, or you don’t need to edit your pages, click Save File and go to step 10.

If you are scanning multiple pages, click Add page and replace the first page on the document table with the second page and click Scan. Repeat this step for each page in your document. When you are finished, click Edit page and go to step 8.
8. You see the Editing Page window displaying thumbnail images of each scanned page:


If you want to include all the document pages in your PDF file as they currently look, go to step 9.
If you want to delete some of the pages, click the odd pages or even pages icons, or click the individual pages you want to delete. Then click the delete icon to delete them.
If you want to rotate pages, click the pages or use the odd pages, even pages, or all pages icon to select the pages. Then click the left or right rotate icon to rotate them.
Note:
The delete icon is not available when all document pages are selected.
9. When you have finished editing your document pages, click OK. Your document is saved in a PDF file in the location you selected and you return to the EPSON Scan window.

10. Click Close to exit Epson Scan. Source(s): http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/…

P6 locks up when opening a project


The software knows whether the file is in use by creating a "lock file". When you "fix" a locked file it usually means the software deletes the file that prevented access your file/document and not that it dropped the user currently using that file instead of you. The software only allows you to fix a locked file, because rarely the software makes a mistake and does not clear the lock file. While it assumes you've verified you're right and it's wrong. In my experience, the file is actually in use either by a system process, through a remote account, or by a user you just couldn't locate. The software locking up when you force the deletion of the lock file is always the result of a read/write error. This is usually a good indication two sources are in fact trying to utilize the same file.

Create a MS Word Report


This from the Word Help files - search for Embed.

You can simply select an area in Excel copy it and paste it into your word document, but embedding allows the data in your Word document to be automatically updated as you change the figures in the Excel Worksheet.

From the Help pages:

You can insert objects (object: A table, chart, graphic, equation, or other form of information. Objects created in one application, for example spreadsheets, and linked or embedded in another application are OLE objects.) into a Microsoft Word document when you want to include information from files created in other Microsoft Office programs or in any program that supports linked objects (linked object: An object that is created in a source file and inserted into a destination file, while maintaining a connection between the two files. The linked object in the destination file can be updated when the source file is updated.) and embedded objects (embedded object: Information (object) contained in a source file and inserted into a destination file. Once embedded, the object becomes part of the destination file. Changes you make to the embedded object are reflected in the destination file.).
default.aspx?assetid=za060473201033 default.aspx?assetid=za060474651033 Embedded object
default.aspx?assetid=za060474661033 Linked object
default.aspx?assetid=za060474671033 Source file
For example, a monthly status report might contain information that is separately maintained in a Microsoft Excel worksheet. If you link (link: Used to insert a copy of information created in one program into a Microsoft Word document while maintaining a connection between the two files. When the information changes in the source file, the changes are reflected in the destination document.) the report to the worksheet, the data in the report can be updated whenever the source file (source file: The file that contains information that was used to create a linked or embedded object. When you update the information in the source file, you can also update the linked object in the destination file.) is updated. If you embed (embed: To insert information created in one program, such as a chart or an equation, into another program. After the object is embedded, the information becomes part of the document. Any changes you make to the object are reflected in the document.) the worksheet in the report, your report, or destination file (destination file: The file that a linked or embedded object is inserted into. The source file contains the information that is used to create the object. When you change information in a destination file, the information is not updated in the source file.), contains a static copy of the data.
default.aspx?assetid=za790050001033The differences between linked objects and embedded objects
The main differences between linked objects and embedded objects are where the data is stored and how you update the data after you place it in the destination file.
Linked objects When an object is linked, information is updated only if the source file is modified. Linked data is stored in the source file. The destination file stores only the location of the source file, and it displays a representation of the linked data. Use linked objects if file size is a consideration.
Linking is also useful when you want to include information that is maintained independently, such as data collected by a different department, and when you need to keep that information up-to-date in a Word document.
When you link to an Excel object, you can use the text and number formatting from Excel, or you can apply the formats supplied by Word. If you use the Word formats, you can preserve formatting when the data is updated. For example, you can change table layout, font size, and font color without losing those changes once the object in the source file is updated.
Embedded objects When you embed an object, information in the destination file doesn't change if you modify the source file. Embedded objects become part of the destination file and, once inserted, are no longer part of the source file.
Because the information is totally contained in one Word document, embedding is useful when you want to distribute an online version of your document to people who don't have access to independently maintained worksheets.
default.aspx?assetid=za790050001033Edit and update linked objects
To edit a linked object in your document, use the Links command on the Edit menu.
By default, linked objects update automatically. This means that Word updates the linked information every time you open the destination file or any time the source file changes when the destination file is open.
If you prefer, you can change a linked object's setting so that the linked object is updated only when you choose to manually update it.
To ensure that your document is always up-to-date, you can also update linked objects whenever you print the document.
To prevent updates, you can lock individual linked objects. When you lock a link, Word uses the last information available from the source file.
You can also permanently break the connection between a linked object and its source file.
default.aspx?assetid=za790050001033Edit embedded objects
To edit an embedded object, double-click it, and then make changes to it in the source program (source program: The program used to create a linked object or embedded object. To edit the object, you must have the source program installed on your computer.). If you don't have the source program, you can convert the embedded object to the file format of a program you do have.
