Hi My computer has been formatted and I use recovery software like disk drill to reocver the files. I got the files but are corrupted and I got this message (Excel cannot open the file because the file format or extension is not valid. Vertify that the file has not been corrupted and that the file extension matches the format of the file).

Afaf.Mutaghawi 05-22-2023

An Excel file was damaged due to a power outage. Only a small part was recovered. The same part that could be recovered from the Excel application (open and repair).

María José 05-22-2023

One of the worksheet in an excel file was too slow and leading to shutdown of excel. It was frustrating ....... I got it repaired here within seconds, and I am so happy . Thanks a ton guys for your smooth , efficient and reliable service !

Shreeniwas 05-22-2023

Kudos to the creator because even Excel said my workbook was beyond repair. I'm not going to say it saved my life but still!!! Just a small point it would be even better if one received the repaired file immediately after payment. THANK YOU AGAIN

Daly 05-22-2023

got back all essential data, (xlsx), adding formulas was just a piece of cake. I appreciate possibility to pay for a single file, no need to buy a subscription. Recommended.

I repaired the price list document with links to the product, only the hyperlinks were restored as text. A strange moment, we could have made a link, since the test and the link are the same.

Evie Cardenas 05-22-2023

This a very good software, matchless, outstanding, any one can use this, thanks for free trial.

Shailendra 05-22-2023

Finally, I was able to access the data of the corupted Excel file. Not everything is perfect, somewhere the cells were puffed up. But most of the data still survived.

The previously used damaged file was repaired in less than 2 minutes. The service was able to display the contents of the presentation in pictures, which is why it pushed me to pay for the fixed file.

Vitaly Next 05-22-2023

I lost access to the file, i.e. MS Excel starts up but cannot open the file or even export data. I was afraid that the data was lost and could not be returned. Your service is a miracle! At first, I did not understand why I was offered to download a file where "Demo" is written on all cells. Looking at the sheet names, I realized that you were able to completely repair my damaged .xlsx document!

Michael 05-22-2023

Damn, I can't convey emotions. How good you are! The file, which I was able to repair was invalid and "could not be opened" as MS Excel says me.

Armani Jonah 05-22-2023

I had an embarrassment at work today. Before lunch, I made edits to the Excel document, and after lunch, my .xlsx does not work. The only thing I did in this document was to copy and add entries to it, and set filters. Another problem is that I am using a corporate laptop on which other programs cannot be installed. My supervisor wrote that I should try to fix the document on your site, and send it to him in the evening. I had to spend $ 10 for restoration and plus $ 2 for VAT. Thanks for help

Yael Ayaan 05-22-2023

Tried and it fixed my Excel report possible

ВеселыйВ 05-22-2023

ceylan 05-22-2023

I repaired all 3 sheets in the document, it's a pity that the cell formatting was not saved
