Corrupt powerpoint presentation after formatting and recovering

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello!
I have a big big and urgent problem , I formatted my USB drive but then I realized I had an powerpoint presentation that was sitting on the disk and I really really need it back.
So I recovered it via recovery software , but now I get a ppt file which I cannot open in powerpoint... What do I do ?

Oh man thats tough. I would say this is a great lesson to remember to always check your drive before reformatting. I would have rather low expectations in getting this file back.

I would first try another recovery program (like everything else, some work better than others).

I would always suggest to keep a copy of all files on a flashdrive also on a hard drive somewhere.

Sorry I couldn't be of much help, but I'm not sure there is much to be done to help!

Sorry!
