As its name suggests, Excel Recovery Toolbox is a handy tool that can recover data from corrupted, damaged, or broken Excel files. This Excel repair application can process the damaged spreadsheets and extract recoverable data from them to a new Excel file.

I like a lot about Excel Recovery Toolbox the fact that it can handle multiple formats of Excel files, including the typical XLS and XLSX, but also XLST, XLSM, XLT, XLAM, or XLTX. Furthermore, it will process spreadsheets created with any Excel version: Excel 97, 2000, XP, 2003, 2007, 2010, or 2013.

This neat utility will attempt to fix the Excel files regardless of the reason why those files got broken in the first place, may it be virus infections, system crashes, disk errors, etc. Excel Recovery Toolbox is also very easy to use. Just load the Excel file to repair, let the program analyze it, and it will display the recoverable data in an Excel-like spreadsheet view. You can then save the recoverable data to a new Excel file or copy and paste it into an opened Excel file. Even complete beginners can use this simple and intuitive program without any problem.

To sum it all up, if you ever have to deal with a broken Excel file, giving Excel Recovery Toolbox a try is a good idea, as this tool could save the day in such situations.
