At times while trying to open a Word document which has been recovered back after deletion or formatting, you may get an error message which states that the file has become corrupted which cannot be opened. You may see the following error message when MS Word can’t open the file. “Word was unable to read this document. It may be corrupt“.

This may leave you in frustrated state as the file you’re trying to open may contain important information which is essentially needed. The reason for Word file corruption may be due to corruption in the header file. You can go for some manual repair options available within the MS Word application.
