HP Mini 110-3700ca PC
So my computer crashed and I saved my files onto my flashdrive. The back up files are compressed into SWM files and I can't open them. I tried dowloading p7zip and extracting the files and the files remained the same. Maybe I didn't do it correctly. I'm running out of ideas. I'm trying to recover a few DOC and RTF files that was saved in the hard drive before the crash.

Inside the folder of files you should see a file with .exe extension, either Recovery.exe or Backup.exe.Double click it to extract the files to a folder on your laptop.
You will have to enable the option to see file extensions for known file types.Do that in Control Panel,Folder Options.
