    Hi! My computer, operating system, Windows Vista, experienced an error and
    saved a word file as rescue.asd. I can not get the file to open. The error
    message states that Word does not recognize the file type. Any suggestions
    as to what I can do to recover the file...or what type of program will open
    an *.asd file. Any info is greatly appreciated....please "dumb down"
    responses as I am not insanely proficient on the computer.
    Thanks so much

    The crash rescue system is not infallible. If the document is recoverable
    from the crash, then the next time Word is opened it will automatically
    recover it. If the recovery file is incomplete or corrupt, it won't.
