I have a corrupted Word 2010 and 2013 file that I want to recover damaged Word file. I have tried several online freeware programs without success. I was unable to use the repair/recover feature in MS Word, issue with my computer finding the file on the network (using work computer). Any suggestions on a free Word Recovery Software?

    1st of all don't assume that the word file is corrupted ! Positive thinking may bring success. Before going to take help from any 3rd party tool, try running chkdsk against the volume containing the corrupted file. which may be able to fix the problem. If this will not work, try to open the file (if it is opened) and try to save the file in other extension, .rtf or .txt. Windows has an good recovery way that is called shadow copy of any document. However, it depends on windows versions/ editions.
