    Attempting to recover corrupted .htm file

    Hi Everyone,

    I am seeking help with a corrupted .htm file.

    Navigate.htm

    This file was created using DreamWeaver and then uploaded to the internet. Since uploading the file the original site went dead, and I am now hoping to reupload, however whenever I attempt to use the afore mentioned .htm file I am met with garbage characters.

    I really want to "unscramble" the contents of this file. If you have any suggestions on how I can recover the <html> contents of this file they will be greatly appreicated.

    Thanks

    Davo

    I tried the online file identifier at http://mark0.net/onlinetrid.aspx with no luck.

    I also tried the web archive at http://web.archive.org/web/*/www.sys...d/Navigate.htm with no luck.

    In addition I tried the google cache at http://webcache.googleusercontent.co...d/Navigate.htm also with no luck.

    Good luck.

    Its likely the file was uploaded using binary as opposed to ascii but if you used dreamweaver it should have known. I was able to get this by opening it in notepad.

    Thanks for your help

    Hi Everyone,

    Thanks all, for your kind assistance.

    I don't know why the file became scrambled, and in my close to a decade of working with html this is the first instance of corruption that I have seen!

    Unfortunately it is looking like I will need to redesign the page, but it's not the end of the world!

    Cheers

    Dave
