How Can I Find Recovered Excel File

 Modified on: January 21, 2021 |    7122 views

Stellar Repair for Excel repairs the corrupt Excel files and allows saving the recovered data at default or a user-specified location.

Once you have downloaded and activated Stellar Repair for Excel, the software scans and repairs the damaged tables, charts, formulae, etc. and displays a preview to verify and save the repaired excel file data.

The newly repaired Microsoft Excel file follows a specific naming convention: Original file name with the prefix “Recovered”.

For example, a corrupt Excel file ‘abc.xls’ is saved as ‘Recovered_abc.xls.’
Follow these steps to find the recovered file:

  1. Go to taskbar
  2. Type the new filename in the Search box. You'll see results for documents across your PC and OneDrive under ‘Best Match’
  3. Click the recovered Excel file from the folder

Hi Janet,

Our software works on preview principle. If software shows preview of repaired file then repaired files open in same manner after recovery.

Further our support team has sent you an email, kindly reply to their email so that they can assist you further.
