Corrupt Pptx files. Need to repair them. Please help!

Hey guys, there is big mess over here. Here I quote: I made some presentation files for promoting our new business. I showed them to my boss. She was quite happy with my work and asked me to send them to our clients. Next day I sent them to all our clients. In the evening time boss got some mails from those clients that the files are not opening. So she asked me to make them again. I have no more time and it is certainly impossible to make those files again but there must be a solution for this situation. Please help. Your help will be surely appreciated.

1st. Try to find the temporary file when you creating it
When you edit a presentation, PowerPoint creates a temporary copy of the file. This temporary file is named PPT####.tmp.
Note #### represents a random four-digit number.
This temporary file may reside in the same folder as the presentation. Alternatively, it may reside in the temporary file folder.
Step 1: Look for temporary file in the documents folder
Windows Vista
Click Start, and then click Documents.
Look for a file that is named PPT####.tmp.
Windows XP
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type %userprofile%\My Documents.
Click OK.
Look for a file that is named PPT####.tmp.
If you do not find the file, you must search for it. To do this, go to step 2.
If you do find the file, go to step 3.
Step 2: Search for the temporary file
Windows Vista
Click Start, and then type PPT*.tmp in the Start Search box.
Press ENTER.
Microsoft Windows XP
Click Start, and then click Search.
In the Named box or in the Search for files or folders named box, type PPT*.tmp.
In the Look in box, click My Computer, and then click Find Now or Search Now.
Step 3: Rename the file, and then try to open the file in PowerPoint
Right-click the file, and then click Rename.
Change the old file name extension from .tmp to .pptx so that the file name resembles the following file name:
PPT####.pptx
Start PowerPoint.
In PowerPoint 2007 click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Open. In PowerPoint 2010 click the File menu, and then click Open.
Browse to the folder that contains the renamed file.
Try to open the file in PowerPoint.
Note More than one file may correspond to the temporary file that was created the last time that you saved the presentation. In this case, you may have to open each file to see whether one is the temporary copy of the presentation.

Try the following:
1) If you have backed up the PowerPoint files, you can restore them from the backup.
2) Use Data migration. It is one of the easiest ways to recover data from a corrupt file. First you need to create a new presentation file. Then by using the Insert menu, you can import all the slides from a corrupt file to this new file. In the case of severe corruption, this method could be ineffective or failed.
3) Use TMP files. Whenever a file gets corrupted or deleted, there is a temporary aka TMP file available in the system. You need to locate it. If the TMP file is successfully located, you can restore the corrupted PowerPoint file. This could be a difficult task for a novice or non-technical users to perform as it may require a lot of technical understanding.
4) Use MS Word or other programs. You can try to open our corrupt presentation file in MS Word. If the file can be opened, you can recover at least the text part of the file. Other than this, you can also try to open the file in OpenOffice Impress.
5) Use a Third party tool: This must be the best and effective solution for recovering corrupt PowerPoint files. A third-party tool is designed to handle any level of corruption from corrupted files. It contains many advanced features and friendly graphical user interface which help users perform maximum possible recovery from corrupted PowerPoint files.

I want to open powerpoint presentation.


then, go to format -> slide design, choose to show all documents, and choose the corrupt powerpoint file. now, go to insert -> slides from file, and select the corrupt powerpoint file. make sure you are set to insert all slides, and then import. if that works, great! i suspect, however, that you might crash at that point. if so, try repeating the process, inserting specific slides one by one until you find the problem one. after that, save the file, making sure that fast saves are off (in preferences / save).
if you are unable to open your powerpoint files then try pptx viewer tool. this utility recovers your corrupt and damaged powerpoint presentations (.ppt, .pot, .pps, pptx and ppsx formats) from ms powerpoint files. http://www.pptx.viewertool.com/
