recover excel spreadsheet“Hi fellows, today I incurred a problem while trying to transfer excel 2007 reports from my computer to pen drive. After connecting the pen drive, I selected all excel sheets that were to be transferred; pressed for Cut option and opened pen drive and clicked for Paste option. But before the process got completed, there was a power surge due to which system went down without completing file transfer process. When power resumed I opened my pen drive, but noticed that excel documents were not transferred completely. Then I searched for those Excel documents in my computer hard drive and found nothing. I need the files which I have lost due to power loss during file transfer. Can anyone propose a solution on how to recover lost Excel 2007 documents on Windows PC? Please help.”
