    Corruption or encoding?

    I am new to coding, and I would like to find out whether the attached file is either corrupt or encoded. I am helping my neighbour with a problem. It started when he tried to resolve the problem himself! I dont really know what he did, but Windows had to be reset to the laptop factory defaults. Before though, I backed up all his stuff with Ubuntu, but when I checked the Documents backup, some were either corrupt or encoded. (I apologise if I am wasting time.) Could anyone shed any light on this?

    Was your neighbour using windows encrytion to secure the document? If he/she was then backing up using Ubuntu would copy the encryted file/folder without first decryting.

    No, he wasn't using Windows encryption - all very strange!

    BP Share Record p1.docBP Share Record p1.docThis is interesting - I opened the file, but this time asked Word to recover any text, and the results are attached!
