How to recover Excel lost file


How to solve some troubles with excel files you may learn from- http://www.filerepairforum.com/forum/microsoft/microsoft-aa/excel/481-%E2%80%8Bexcel-files-corrupted

How to Recover an Excel File for Free

1.Check the Recycle Bin--if you've accidentally deleted the file, it should still be there unless you've emptied the bin, and you can click on the file and recover it.

2.Use the Auto Recovery Pane when you open Excel. Review the document recovery pane. If Excel has managed to recover your file, it will show in a separate pane on the left-hand side. Identify your document in the pane, then click on it and choose "Open" to open the recovered file.

3.Try manually repairing the file. Click on "File" in Excel 2003 or the "Office" button in
Excel 2007, then select "Open" and click on the arrow next to the "Open" button. Click on
"Open and Repair" and choose from two options: click on "Repair" if you want to try to completely recover the file, or click on "Extract Data" if you previously tried Step 1 and it did not work.

4.Search for the file manually on your computer. When performing a system search (click "Start" and select "Search" in Windows XP and Windows 2000, or press the "Windows" button and "F" key in Windows 7 and Vista), make sure you choose "Advanced Search Options" and then check the "System and hidden files" check box. You may be able to find your missing or corrupted file using this search: double-click on the file name in the search results to open it.

If nothing can help you, look at Excel Repair Toolbox

Get rid off safe search on google


Google's preference page allows users to customize settings and options that help utilize searches to the viewer's needs. One of those options is Google's filtering tool. This tool contains three filtering options that will filter your results completely, with moderate safety, or it will not filter the search results at all. Google's filtering preferences also filter and determine what kind of keywords and keyword phrases appear in the Google search bar.

Click on "Preferences" on the left side of the search bar of the Google Home Page. You will be directed to Google's "Preferences" page. Scroll down until you locate the "Safe Search Filtering" section of the page. You will see three safe search options: "Use Strict Filtering," "Use Moderate Filtering," and "Do Not Filter My Search Results." Click the "Do Not Filter My Search Results" option to check the option and click the "Save Preferences" button to save your changes.

I can not format kingston usb DT101 G2. I click on the format choice and it says that I am using another programm,but I am very sure that I don't use anything.


goto my computer> tools >folder options > view >

tick the "show hidden files" option and also untick the "hide protected operating system files" option

now browse your usb and search for exe files and delete them all.
delete everything in the usb as you you are already trying to format it.

if it gives the same error that the file is being used then open task manager by pressing alt+ctrl+del.
goto processes tab and search for the same file name which generated the error on deleting.

end the process by right clicking it.

now format your usb.


If it still gives the same error then use the HP USB utility (link below):

http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Hard-Disk-Utils/HP-USB-Disk-Storage-Format-Tool.shtml


AND remember your problem is not of hardware category.... it's a virus that is causing such errors.

Perhaps a good antivirus can clean your USB and make it perfect again.

thanks in advance and do vote my answer
