Hi can someone help.
I`ve reload some old deleted files of maps I had given up on but now I know what to do with them.
But there not in readable text, how do I get them back to readable text.

I've no idea what you mean? Example?
In general none of the map files is in text format, apart from xml (style) files.

Sorry it`s the xml files and i3d.

I still don't understand what this is about?
If you have removed a file from map (folder) and insert it later again, it doesn't change its content or format.
Unless you have made a gross mistake. But no one knows that except yourself.

I`ve retrieve the deleted files from a file retrieving app,
which as left them like this. This is the i3d file.
I`ve tried a repair file app. Is there anything I can do to get it back.

A recovery program can only restore deleted files immediately after deleting. After some time the content on drive is overwritten by other files.
Time to think about a backup strategy?
