I know how anoying it is when you get a file you cant open, and that happened to me today when I received a “docX” file from work. I stumbled upon Zamzar which is a great web service which will convert files from many file types to a long list of other file types, and all for free. The service worked great when converting my “docX” file to a simple “doc” file and boasts a long list of file types for documents, images, videos and even archives!
So Whats the catch?
- Ads (and plenty of them)
- Document is emailed to you shortly after conversion
- Converted file must be retrieved within 24 hours after conversion
Other than the points above, brilliant free service. Something like this should definately be integrated into Google Documents which currently lacks support for most of the files zamzar works with!
