I had some password protected Word 97 documents on a Sandisk jump drive and they have been deleted. I have tried several free file recovery software applications and at least one recovers the files with a missing first character, but the data that is recovered appears to be encrypted. I am not prompted to enter a password to open the files, it is like they are encrypted permanently. Word wants me to specify the encoding or something like that, but none that I select makes the gibberish look much different. I would appreciate any suggestions as to how I can get the files, or even partial text in the files back. Thanks
