Abstract

A method is described to permit DisplayWrite* 4 (DW4) users to repair the Two-level Index structure, Data content (Text) and Non-text Object data within DW4 Composite documents. Recovery allows the user to be capable of editing Composite documents that otherwise would be useless due to a damaged index structure and/or datastream content errors or non-text object errors. (Image Omitted) DisplayWrite 2.0 - 3.1 supports recovery of the Two-level Index structure and Datastream content of a Text document. The Recover Document function selectable from the Document Utilities Task Selection menu allows DW2 - DW3 users to recover their Text documents. On DisplayWrite 4.0, the concept of a 'Non-text Object' data structure was introduced.
