How to recover a corrupt Microsoft Excel file
Accidently I deleted my user profile along which all my data in the desktop and profile documents got lost. My support guy did restore the files of the profile using a recovery tool. But I found that some office files (Excel,Word and Powerpoint) open up but others dont. For example the corrupt powerpoint file doesnot open up with a message that "The selected file does not appear to be a valid Microsoft Office PowerPoint file". Whereas in Excel the file opens but displays junk value. Can somebody help me repair these files as they are critical. I can mail the excel and ppt file if required.
The reason why you cannot recover the corrupt Excel or Word files because these files do not contain any valid Excel or Word data at all. I have reviewed your Word document and find it contains some XML data and some looks like a scheme from an EXE file.
The reason is the restore process performed by your support guy. Actually when you delete your profile and documents, your support guy may be using a bad data recovery tool, which does recover the file names, however, the tool just put some garbage data inside a so called Word document and make you believe the Word document is recovered. However, the recovered Word document actually does not contain any valid data at all. This is the pitfall of many data recovery products in the market. They recover files and put some unrelated stuff inside it so even after the file is "recovered", you still cannot use it.
If the tool used by your support guy has not read on your hard disk drives(that is, the tool is performing a read-only recovery, which is the good practise and requirements of a solid data recovery program), then you can try another data recovery tool to see if you data can be recovered or not.
You can try Excel Repair Toolbox on any computer in the local area network, it is the fastest way out, resolving the damage of XLS documents.
