Repairing a DOC File

DOC File Header Data

DOC files contain a sequence of unique bytes at the beginning of the file. This header section is usually followed by the main DOC file section. Where the header block is present, our document repair tool will parse the header data to validate the file type and also provide additional metadata that describes key characteristics of the document uploaded.
