You should be able to open a small file in notepad ,I think you will find that although you have erased your word doc you forgot to erased the auto backup that word keeps ,it may be that this is what you are seeing

Oh, I think what you areseeing is that the file record is still there (which shouldn't happen actually -- how are you erasing it, which version are you using?) but the converter is required because the actual file data is missing (erased by Eraser) and thus Word thinks the file is foreign and can't open it.

Are you seeking a helpful and convenient tool to do files recovery? In my opinion, RecoveryTool will be a good choice of you.
