Recovered Files on Back Up Drive Are All Squares and Weird Y's RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was previously running Windows XP and had Office 2007 installed (I think). My hard drive crashed and they were able to recover some of the files but nothing has a name.  If I open up a Word or Excel file, I just see a bunch of squares and weird 'Y's.

    After the crash, I am now running Window's 10 and have Office 2016.  Could someone please advise me how to make these files readable? Thank you.
