Edit and open save files

Hi, I recently lost some progress in a game cause the save file got coruppted. Then i found a post on reddit which shows a way to fix that corruption. Apparently it's kinda risky but i lost 18 hours of progress so i'd like to take the risk. So i went to my save file and tried to open it with editor. But instead of a code i got some sort of hieroglyphs. The first part of this looked like this:
"BND4 @ 00000001 P ÿÿÿÿ À P ÿÿÿÿ Ú P ÿÿÿÿ ô P ÿÿÿÿ 00 P ÿÿÿÿ @@ ( P ÿÿÿÿ PP B P ÿÿÿÿ `` \ P ÿÿÿÿ pp v P ÿÿÿÿ €€  P ÿÿÿÿ  ª P ÿÿÿÿ    Ä P ÿÿÿÿ °¦ Þ U S E R _ D A T A 0 0 0 U S E R _ D A T A 0 0 1 U S E R _ D A T A 0 0 2 U S E R _ D A T A 0 0 3 U S E R _ D A T A 0 0 4 U S E R _ D A T A 0 0 5 U S E R _ D A T A 0 0 6 U S E R _ D A T A 0 0 7 U S E R _ D A T A 0 0 8 U S E R _ D A T A 0 0 9 U S E R _ D A T A 0 1 0 U S E R _ D A T A 0 1 1 "
It was all written in one line. Well you can clearly see that this is supposed to be some kind of code because the number of the lines are there (001, 002,...) and it even shows some words like User_Data. But the rest is pretty much just random signs.
This has nothing to do with the corruption because i started a new game and the file looks the same. I also opened it with notepad++ but i got the same result. Do i need a different program to open this or is there something else wrong?

Notepad ++ msut working

by dylancooper300 In reply to Edit and open save files

I had a similar situation but I used the latest Nortepad++ 64-bit version (link removed by moderator). Try to open the file from the Administrator. Notepad must be working. I think it is the best software to change such files.
