File necromancy

Yes! I have done it! I brought a file back from the dead!

Only it's still broken...

I've recently ran some file recovery and found the deleted file that Windows 7 apparently "ate" and now I got it back I just need to make sense of it.

You see it was a txt file made in notepad with some vital information. Suffice it to say it is really important but I need to read the file first. All it shows me is some weird symbols and a bunch of empty space. There wasn't a whole lot on there to begin with.

So how can I breathe some life back into this file (strange how these words have the same letters?) before I write it off back to the file cemetery? (Also known as the recycling bin)

Download Notepad++ and you should be able to read it.
