So 2 weeks ago i did a clean install of mac lion on my mac. I transferred files to my usb like microsoft word and some itunes. Now everytime i open microsoft office, word, on my usb it does nothing and if i choose to open it from one drive i use text edit and its a text document. I havent downloaded anything except mini mac recovery tool to get it back so i hope not to much data is overwritten. Also when clean installing i only did zero disk or one pass over so i didnt do that goverment type write over. Help me. I neex to recover it also what steps should i take next time.

Did you reinstall Office or just copy the executable files?

It won't work that way. You will need to reinstall Office.

You could try something like OpenOffice which is a free download and will work on a Mac. OpenOffice.org

i think i just click on the icon, then copy and i saw there and it launched before the clean install so i thought it was good but now it says microsoft word could not launch, try reinstalling microsoft word.

Since you don't have a copy of Microsoft Office you could try the office suite I mentioned in my last post. It will open Word documents and you can save in the Word format.
