Memorex Travel Drive


I am a Mac user. I stashed text created primarily in Appleworks onto my Travel Drive, and unfortunately trashed the originals from my hard drive.
When I went to open the texts on the Travel Drive MANY (but not all) will not open even after trying to choose a new application.
They seem to be locked into Unix Executable (??) Files.

How can I get my works documents to revert back to their original form? Or, how can I just bloody open them! I've tried to copy the texts back onto my hard drive, but the same results occur. Yikes!

Unix executable: Translation: the computer doesn't know what
the heck it is.

You can generally open those files from within a compatible app
via FILE/OPEN. Or get hold of a utility to change their type/creator
