Excel Recovery

Name - S2 Services Excel Recovery

screenshot Search for temporary files interface.

Download URL - http://sourceforge.net/projects/corruptexcelrec/files

Developer - S2 Services / Paul Pruitt

OS - Windows All

File Size - 4.98 MB

Developer Provided Description - "Microsoft recommends several methods for recovering Excel data from corrupt spreadsheets. Excel Recovery makes it easy to follow these recommended routines by just pressing buttons.

The application also adds three methods of its own for recovery. Additionally it has its own native previous file version recovery tool which works in any version of Vista, Windows 7 and maybe Windows 8. Also the program has a preloaded search interface for finding temporary and deleted versions of your corrupt file.

For completeness sake the program has shortcuts to 4 major commercial solution providers for corrupt Excel files including providing the coupon "S2SERVICES" for using Recoveronix' online corrupt file recovery service for free until May 1, 2013, a $39 value.

Finally a link is provided to a form where users can upload their corrupt files which are then automatically sent to me, the author for manual recovery. I charge $22 for satisfactory recovery, otherwise the file analysis is free."

File Size - 1.42 MB

Developer Provided Description - "Corrupt Office 2007-2013 Extractor will extract the text/data from corrupt docx, xlsx, and pptx files where the respective MS Office files error out and refuses to open. In advanced mode the program can fix the zip structure of these new "Office Open" format files, a step which I now recommend despite our dissuasive blurb which comes up when you start that function.

Advanced mode also allows recovering images and if you are familiar with XML, includes is a basic XML editor for editing corrupt XML which might be causing the docx, xlsx or pptx corruption."

Name - Corrupt XLSX Salvager


Download URL - http://sourceforge.net/projects/

Developer - S2 Services / Paul Pruitt

OS - Windows All

File Size - 9.53 MB

Developer Provided Description - "This program allows you to open and see data from some corrupt Excel XLSX format spreadsheets that Excel 2002 and 2003 (with the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack installed) and Excel 2007 and 2010 refuse to open. It allows you then to convert that data to CSV files for re-import into new Excel files.

This program works as a rudimentary viewer and editor of corrupt and healthy xlsx format files without needing Excel installed. With it you can view how Excel slightly skews its stored raw data in the background which is then transformed and rounded off for display in the program."

Comment - If you can't open an Excel file, this might interpret it for you. You might have to make the name of your Excel file 8 characters or less in length. Also try booting to a Windows 98 boot disk and using real DOS from that. To copy the output you can click on ton the little C:\ Icon in the upper left of the DOS Window(Cropped picture of the upper left of DOS Window.) and choosing Edit -> Mark and then hitting the Enter Key.
