Default Problem with recovered files.

I have just recovered alot of files from my hard drive and for some reason, every single PHP file has saved, but once you open any one of them, the result looks something like:


I have no idea what type of text this is, so can not even try and find something to convert it back to plain text.

The weird part is, as all PHP files start with "<?php", they should all therefore start exactly the same, but they do not.

My log files are uploaded: here

Start ZAR, open Advanced Configuration, then under "Overrides" set "Sector offset for 0th cluster" to 63 and rescan the same way you did.
If this does not work, try 0 instead of 63.
Record the log each time.
Best regards,
