Dear Computer Lady,
I have been reading your newsletter for many years now but this is the first time I have asked you a question.
Several years ago I used a trial program which could open any document no matter what the extension. You might see formating characters etc. but the actual test was readable. When my out dated computer hard drive crashed I got a new computer but was unable to read the files I had backed up.
This was a trial program which I used to copy and paste my old documents and spreadsheets into my new programs. It was great. The next time I needed it I was going to buy it but I couldn’t remember the name. I believe it had ‘quick’ in the program name. I’m not sure, but I remember it had a ‘Q’.
Elizabeth can you please help me identify that program or one that will do the same thing?
I have searched the internet in every way I can think of but cannot find any program that does that.

You must be talking about a program called QuickView Plus. It is located at:
This program is able to read about 300 different file types, and it does have a 30 day free trial.
I hope this helps you read your files.
