Microsoft Office is the most widely used office suite, usually including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access. However, Microsoft Office documents are prone to get lost due to careless deletion, formatting, power failure, system crash, accidentally shutting down and software errors. 

While being caught in one of these situations, is it possible to recover saved over files or retrieve deleted and lost documents? The answer is definitely YES.

Why Is Office Recovery Possible

When a document is deleted or lost due to other reasons, it will not disappear from your computer immediately. The system will simply mark the area of the hard disk drive as "ready for new files". The office document is still there but not visible because the system removed its file directory. This gives you the opportunity to recover deleted or lost office documents.

Frequently Asked Qusetions

1. Why cannot I recover 2GB data for free?

It is recommended to check the version installed is Free or Trial because they are different versions.

Trial has data preview function but cannot save any files, while the Free version enables to recover 2 GB files. The default free space is 500 MB and you may share the product on social media to get another 1.5 GB.

2. Why cannot the recovered files be opened?

A file is saved as 2 parts on the storage device: directory info (which is comprised by file name, time stamp and size info, etc.) and data content.

If the files with original file names and folder structures cannot be opened, one possible reason is the corrupted directory info. There is still a chance to recover the data content with the RAW Recovery method in our software.

3. Why isn't it suggested to recover the files back to the original drive?

The storage structure of the lost files would be altered or damaged by any changes on the drive. If you save the recovered files back to the same drive, the original data structures and data content would be corrupted or overwritten, which causes permanent data loss. So you should prepare another disk to save the files.
