Corrupt Excel File Recovery
Thursday, September 27, 2007

Excel worksheets are used to create and manage financial transactions, performance reports, charts, business reports, accounting transactions, and other financial and diagrammatic records. The excel (.xls) files generally get corrupt due to registry corruptions, virus attacks, unexpected system shutdowns, power failures and media corruptions. To recover back the lost and deleted excel files and data you can utilize the inbuilt recovery measures provided in MS Excel which performs the recovery procedure effectively and repairs the corruption in almost every case.

Whenever an excel file gets corrupt due to unexpected system shutdown or power failure, the very next time when the application is launched, MS Excel displays a Document Recovery Window, where list of all the repaired files are listed. You can select the appropriate file and the last saved data will be recovered instantly.

But in case if MS Excel does not recovers the file, you can manually start the process of recovery:

1. Open New Excel worksheet

2. Click the File menu and select the Open option.

3. In the Open dialogue box, select the .xls file which you want to open. The Open button will get activated, click the arrow and select the Open and Repair option.

4. Click the Repair button to start the process of recovery and Extract Data button to extract data if excel was unable to repair a previous workbook.

The Excel workbook with corruptions can be easily recovered and repaired by using this method.

The additional methods which can be utilized to recover data from excel workbooks are, opening the file on different hard disk or on a different computer system, saving a backup copy, opening the file in ms word or notepad or otherwise using a third party utility.

Third party utilities prove beneficial in the cases where inbuilt recovery methods are not able to recover major corruptions like, the complete formulas or are unable to convert the excel values.

How to Reformat Your Windows XP Computer
Friday, September 21, 2007

While still in Windows, place your XP disk into your disk drive (sometimes a window will appear, simply close this). Simply reboot (restart) your PC while the disk is still in your drive. Reboot your PC from your Windows Disk.After restarting your machine (a few seconds wait) you should be presented with this option: Press any key to boot from CD. Simply press any key and your on your way for a fresh install of Windows XP!. If you did not receive this message then your PC does not have your cd drive as the first boot-up option.

Simply restart your machine and enter BIOS (this is done by pressing a key when you machine makes that weird start up noise.) The key to press will be displayed on the monitor. After entering BIOS you are looking for start-up sequence or boot options - make sure the CD drive is selected first. Restart your PC and everything should be ok.

Click INSTALL WINDOWS, this gives you a fresh installation. You will be asked now if you wish to create a new partition. To begin with select the partition you already have and press D to delete. Press ENTER to confirm and then L to confirm deletion again. This process will now erase everything off your hard drive. If your copy of windows xp is damaged or lost then you will need to buy an official copy. For fantastic savings on all software and operating system software visit the free fix it computer store and pick up your copy of windows xp.

To carry on we need to create a new partition. Simply press C. Dont worry about the size of this partition, lets just get installing by pressing ENTER. Next, select the partition that we have just created by pressing ENTER. All we have to do now is select the first option available to us (format the partition by using the NTFS file system/Quick). Windows should now be installing and the screen in front of you will now look more familiar.

Reformat Hard Drive Under XP?
Saturday, September 15, 2007

Do You Really Want To Format That Hard Drive?

Be forewarned, formatting a hard drive is MUCH different than formatting a Word document. The format will erase *everything* on the disk (the operating system, your programs and data files) and leave you unable to even boot up the PC. About the only thing you can do with a freshly formatted drive is install an operating system from CDROM.

I know... that's exactly what you said you wanted to do. But that *may* be a bit drastic. After re-installing Windows XP, you will need to reapply all the patches and fixes from Microsoft, then reinstall all the software packages you previously had. It could take many hours just to download the Windows Update files.

I'm guessing you're considering this move because your PC has been infested by a bunch of spyware and/or viruses, and is now acting sluggish and flaky. But before you go all samurai on your hard drive, I recommend you follow all the steps in my Make Windows Run Faster! article. It's my special recipe to clean the gunk out of your computer's pipes, so Windows will start quicker, run more reliably, and go faster on the info-superhighway.

If you really want to format your hard drive...

You can't... at least not while you're running Windows. You'll have to reboot from the Windows XP installation CD, because you can't format the drive on which Windows is running. But first you'll probably want to back up your hard drive, or at least part of it. For help with that, see Backing Up Your Files and explore the various options for backing up your personal files.

Okay, back to reformatting... when the install disk boots up, you’ll see a message asking if you want to repair your existing installtion. You don't, so press ESC to bypass the repair option.

Now select the partition where Windows is installed, then press D to delete it. Press L to confirm the delete. Okay, it's time to create and format a new partition. Select the unpartitioned space and press C to create a new partition. Allot the maximum amount of space available, then press Enter.

Now select the partition you’ve just created, and format it. Choose the NTFS option, go for the "quick format" then sit and wait. When the new partition is formatted, you're ready to (re)install Windows. Don't forget to reinstall your anti-virus and anti-spyware software, and be sure to visit Windows Update as soon as possible to ensure that you have all the latest security fixes.

Corrupt Word File Recovery
Monday, September 10, 2007

There are as many ways to recover the lost data as there are the reasons to lose it. If there are 10 ways to loose data then there are 12 methods to recover back the lost/deleted data. Generally, a word file gets corrupt due to unexpected system shutdown, power outage, software crashes, file corruption, virus attacks and due to many other endless reasons.

The in-built recovery facility in MS Word helps you to recover the minor corrupted files.

MS Word allows you to create a backup copy of your work every time you save the file, which can be easily accessed in case if the .doc file gets corrupt or damaged.

For example, if you are working on a ‘Support.doc’ in MS Word and you have enabled the backup option, Word will automatically create a backup copy called ‘Backup copy of support.doc’. So if in case your document file gets corrupt you can use this backup copy.

To turn on the backup option in MS Word, perform the following steps:

1. Launch MS Word.
2. Click Tools > Options and click the Save tab.
3. Select the Always Create Backup Copy check box.

The AutoRecover feature in Office XP constantly saves data of the file you are working on and helps in undue circumstances of unexpected system shutdown, power failure, software crash where the document automatically gets closed. The next time you launch the application, Word restores the last saved data and presents the recovered file. The “Document Recovery Window” gets open on left side of the document screen with the list of recovered files. Double click the appropriate file or right click and select Save to save it.

As you know that there are uncountable reasons of data loss, apart from the inbuilt recovery measures, which are helpful only in the case of minor corruptions, third party utilities proves even more beneficial to recover the lost data easily and cost effectively. Kernel Recovery for Word to repair the corrupt word document files software, effectively recovers the deleted and damaged data from the corrupt .doc files. The advanced word recovery software repairs and restores damaged word files after instances of virus attacks, unexpected system shutdowns, media read error and so on

How To Recover Lost or Deleted Data Files: Data Recovery Software Information
Tuesday, September 4, 2007

Have you heard of data/file recovery? The definition of the term Data Recovery is "..Making previously lost or damaged data available again.." A data recovery software or method can help us recover destroyed data e.g. an accidentally deleted file. It happens all the time. You delete an important file on your PC and send it to your recycle bin by mistake. You realize what you've done only after you've cleaned the contents of the recycle bin.

What do you do now?
That file you deleted was so important. Fortunately there are lots of methods (Data Recovery Methods) and software (Data Recovery Software) available to help you get your lost files back.

Let's start by mentioning some possible reasons for the loss of data:

* You accidentally delete an important file. Then you immediately shred the contents of your recycle bin
* During today's system crash some files just disappeared and cannot be located or accessed
* You format your hard drive but then you remember those important .zip files previously stored in the newly formatted empty medium.
* A power outage prevented some files from being written to the hard disk.
* Data loss can also occur due to physical damage of the storage media. For example the surface of your CD-ROM may be scratched off or your hard disk may suffer from all kinds of possible mechanical failures.

..and the list goes on.

Is Data Recovery Important?
Data recovery is a very misunderstood concept. A lot of people may not even be aware of the existence and the importance of data recovery. Maybe they think of it on a personal level. The truth is, lost data causes financial disasters to companies all over the world. The cost associated with computer downtime and lost data is enormous (several million dollars) for businesses.

How to deal with data loss?
Losing files is easy but recovering them can be difficult. If the loss was due to physical damage then you need someone with experience, a hardware technician or something. It wouldn't be wise to try to overcome hardware failures alone unless you are a professional.

Now, if the loss of data was due to logical failure or human error then the solution is data recovery software. The data recovery software should be able to:

- Undelete files even after you've shred the contents of your recycle bin
- Recover files after you've been infected from a malicious threat (trojan, worm or other virus)
- Recover files from reformatted hard disks or after your system crashes or your hard disk fails
- Recover all types of files (all kinds of documents, images, music, videos, email messages, zipped files etc)
- Recover data from all types of storage mediums (hard disks, external drives, CD-ROM, usb drives, floppy disks etc)
- Recover files easily and successfully. Should be user-friendly allowing someone with no data recovery skills to use it
- Take/create backups of critical system files or files you choose

The best way to avoid data loss is to start taking backups of your important storage mediums. Either create backups of data on CD-ROMS or use an external drive or zip drive to back up your critical files. If you want to go further look for software that automates the process of backing up and storing your data. These programs are kind of "set and forget". You set it up to take backups every hour or every day or month etc. and let the software do the rest.

Now you know it's possible to restore almost every type of lost or deleted file, it's time to learn how to do it. How about this highly recommended Data Recovery Software that will restore all your lost data quickly and easily? There's a free trial version waiting for you to download. Give it a try.
