I opened a file in notepad and there is garbage. For this notepad problem hex editing might perhaps be required, do you think? Or is it just the wrong format (Unicode, ASCII, etc.)? What happens if a file in a different character set is loaded into notepad?

Hi Willie,

                You may want to also try the free trial version of textconversionbasic.exe, it can convert text to hex, text to binary , text to octal and vice versa, this can be a software, base64 and URLEncode /Decode. This file is 2MB in size just run the file and then follow the onscreen instruction and begin to use it.

The stuff you see after opening a file with Notepad is not actually garbage but binary code. Notepad is only used to open text files. It cannot open files in binary format. If you attempt to open a file with Notepad and the file is not in text format, the data it contains appears as symbols as if the file is corrupt.

Microsoft Notepad or simply Notepad is a simple plain-text editor built into Microsoft Windows and a primary text editing program that allows users to create documents in text format. This program was around since 1985 when Windows 1.0 was released. The files you create with Notepad have no styles or format tags and saved with “.txt” extension.

It is very appropriate for editing system files to use in a DOS environment. The Windows NT version of Notepad which is installed on Windows 2000 and Windows XP by default is capable of detecting Unicode files even if a byte order mark is missing.
