Magic Word Recovery makes recovering deleted Word documents easy. Just follow the prompts of the built-in recovery wizard, selecting the disk and specifying the recovery method (Quick or Comprehensive), and the Magic Word document recovery tool will do the rest.

Documents Stored on Corrupted and Inaccessible Media
Magic Word Recovery shares its data recovery engine with our top-of-the-line product. This means that the tool can handle the most difficult cases without breaking a sweat. Formatted disks? Check. Repartitioned hard drives? You’ve got them. “Windows cannot access the disk” errors? Easy. Magic Word file recovery software employs a highly sophisticated, low-level disk scanning engine allowing the tool to reliably detect every file saved by all supported versions of Microsoft Word.
Content-aware recovery is one of the signature features of Magic Word Recovery. This algorithm engages automatically when you choose the Comprehensive recovery mode. It reads the entire content of the device to ensure that no single document escapes its attention. The algorithm operates by matching the content of raw disk sectors against characteristic signatures found in Word documents. Once a signature is detected, the Word repair tool calculates the exact physical location of the file, performs an integrity check on its content and, if the file is actually recoverable, adds it to recovery.
Word Recovery from Damaged Media
If you choose the Quick Scan mode, Magic Word document recovery software works blazing fast. The deleted documents literally snap into view, added to a thumbnail gallery in a matter of seconds. The Quick mode allows recovering one or more documents deleted just recently.
Magic Word data recovery program can revive documents in a wide range of formats including DOC, DOCX, RTF, ODT recovery, and other formats produced by OpenOffice and Microsoft Word versions 6 through 2019. The program provides damaged, lost, and corrupted Word file recovery and brings your important data back.
File System Support
The Microsoft Word recovery tool can restore documents from disks formatted with all revisions of FAT and NTFS. This allows Magic Word Recovery to successfully operate on all desktop, laptop and removable hard disks and other types of media.
The free version of Magic Word Recovery will perform the complete scan of the system, locate, and validate recoverable documents and display full-size previews.

Restores files from deleted and formatted drives
The Word file recovery tool supports the recovery from deleted partitions, formatted volumes and repartitioned hard drives. The tool scans the entire surface of the hard disk or reads the full content of a solid-state drive in order to reliably detect, locate and read the content of a deleted partition. If the disk has been formatted, the tool can read raw sectors from the disk in an attempt to detect the beginning of multiple known file types. During this process, the tool will not need the file system to be present, and will successfully restore the files even if the file system is emptied by the format operation.
Deleted partitions can be similarly detected by reading blocks of raw data from the disk surface, matching and analyzing raw data structures in an attempt to detect the beginning and size of deleted partitions. Once all partitions are successfully detected, the tool can perform further analysis by accessing their file systems and reading files off deleted partitions. More often than not, deleted partitions are much less of a problem than formatted hard drives or deleted files.
Fully guided wizard
Magic Word Recovery combines a high-tech recovery engine with an easy, user-friendly interface. A fully guided wizard will take you through the entire recovery process step by step. The wizard makes the recovery easily possible to anyone. The wizard allows specifying which disk contains the documents to recover, and whether to use Quick or Comprehensive analysis. Additional options are available, but can be left to their default values if desired. Two recovery methods are available: Quick Scan and Comprehensive Analysis. In Quick Scan mode Magic recovery software for Word documents works blazing fast, displaying a list of recoverable documents in a matter of seconds. The Quick mode is great if you want to recover some recently deleted documents.
If you have a formatted partition, corrupted or inaccessible hard drive or memory card, the Quick mode may not return meaningful results. If this is the case, use Comprehensive Analysis instead. The Comprehensive mode takes much longer than the Quick one, but can reliably recover documents stored on badly damaged media.
Recovers documents removed from the Recycle Bin or deleted with Shift + Del
Magic Word Recovery can easily recover documents removed from the Recycle Bin, deleted directly with Shift + Del or erased in third-party applications. What makes this possible is the fact that Windows, when deleting a file, does not actually wipe its contents. Instead, the file’s record in the file system gets marked as “deleted”. As a result, any disk space previously occupied by the deleted file becomes available for the operating system and other programs. Recovering a file is possible if one can determine which exact blocks on the hard disk were occupied by the deleted file. The Magic Word Recovery program collects this information from the file system. In Comprehensive Analysis mode, it scans the entire disk surface in order to determine the exact physical location of a deleted file.
There are certain precautions to follow. As disk space containing deleted files is available, installing, writing or saving anything onto that same disk may result in permanent loss of that content. This is why you must install Magic Word Recovery onto a separate disk or external device to conduct an efficient deleted Word file recovery process.
Thumbnail gallery and pre-recovery preview
After completing the scanning process, Magic recovery for Word files displays recoverable documents as a thumbnail gallery. Thumbnail-sized previews make navigating through documents available for recovery much easier, while making searching and recovering a particular file a matter of just a few clicks. If you’d like to see a full-size preview of a particular document, you can open the built-in viewer by simply clicking on any document from the list.
The built-in preview has no external dependencies, and requires no Microsoft Office, OpenOffice or Adobe PDF Reader to operate. The preview is fully visual, displaying the complete document or spreadsheet complete with all formatting, fonts, colors, backgrounds and embedded pictures and objects. The preview is available in both full and free versions of the product. Files in formats produced by Microsoft Word, Excel, OpenOffice as well as Adobe PDF can be previewed.
Working with drive images
To make the recovery from corrupted media even safer, Magic Word Recovery provides the ability to make a virtual snapshot of the disk being recovered. The snapshot is a complete, bit-precise image of the entire drive saved into a single file on another (healthy) drive.
By creating a virtual drive image, The Microsoft Word recovery tool reduces the number of disk access operations to an absolute minimum by reading the entire content of the disk in a single continuous read as opposed to multiple small, random access operations. All subsequent operations such as scanning, previewing and recovering files are then performed with that virtual image instead of the original drive.
This greatly increases the chance of successful recovery for badly damaged and heavily worn disks, keeping the number of disk access operations as low as possible. In addition, the snapshot can serve as a bit-precise backup of the entire disk or partition.
