In today’s world, Microsoft® Excel has become one of the most widespread tools used by individuals and businesses alike. Excel is used daily for creating spreadsheets, data sets, tables, and much more. However, the loss of an Excel file, whether due to accidental deletion, corruption, or system failure, can lead to significant setbacks.
SecureRecovery® for Excel repairs .xlsx and .xls files by scanning, analyzing, and attempting to fix the corrupted file. It does so by exporting all available data into a new spreadsheet, maintaining data integrity. Our tool repairs text, numbers, formulas, merged cells, comments, frozen rows and columns, embedded images, filter settings, sheet names, images, hyperlinks, and other similar attributes. However, in cases of severe damage or corruption, some data loss is inevitable.
Using our Excel file repair software is a non-destructive operation, meaning this tool only analyzes the damaged file and does not change the original data. Try it for free by downloading our demo or using our online Excel file repair option.
When dealing with a corrupted Excel file, the first step is to understand the error that you are receiving. An Excel file is corrupted when the file data contains inconsistencies which make it impossible to open with the application. If you get an error message while trying to open your .xls, .xlsx, or .xla file, it’s most likely corrupted. Some other indications your file is corrupted include the application crashing when opening or the file opening as a mix of random characters.
The good news is that, in most cases, the file is not lost completely. There can be a small sliver of data that can help rebuild the file. Our Excel repair tool works to fix and restore the remaining non-corrupted data from damaged xls, xlsx, or xla files. This give you the ability to recover your Excel file and open it without any errors.
Try our Demo version for free today, or use our online Excel file repair tool. The SecureRecovery® for Excel Demo tool can evaluate the viability of file repair before committing to the full repair operation. It only produces a limited number of data, so for large files, the full version is needed. The Demo tool can, however, help determine whether the file is able to be recovered. In the case that file cannot be fixed, you will see a "No data to recover" message. If this happens to you, it is possible your file can still be recovered by a specialist. Contact our team for a manual review.

Note: Always backup your original corrupted Excel spreadsheet before proceeding with any recovery activity!
While the full version can recover complete spreadsheets, the demo will only recover a limited number of cells. Past this point, recovered cells will be replaced with generic placeholder text. If a cell is unrecoverable, it will not appear with the placeholder text. Please note that formatting, stylesheets and other elements may not be recoverable if they do not appear in the demo output.
Before using either the demo version or the full version of SecureRecovery for Excel, we strongly recommend making backups of all of your damaged spreadsheets.
Not necessarily. When cells are damaged or portions of your spreadsheet are unreadable, SecureRecovery for Excel replaces the damaged areas with blank space, which can result in a smaller file size. This typically does not affect the usability of the recovered files.
Some features (such as advanced formatting) may be supported or unrecoverable, which would also result in a smaller file size. Also, the demo version of the software almost always outputs a relatively small file, since recovered cells are entirely replaced with placeholder text.
This is normal. The damaged parts of your Excel spreadsheet will convert to zero size on output. The other common reason of file size decrease is when some of features of the original spreadsheet are not supported and therefore absent from the recovered spreadsheet. Demo-recovered spreadsheet is smaller because it mostly consists of demo placeholders than actual data.
SecureRecovery for Excel can recover Excel spreadsheets that have lost data due to corruption, deletion, virus damage or for various other reasons. It is a powerful tool with excellent ease of use and state-of-the-art features.
