I was working on the file when it suddenly closed. And then I tried to reopen it. And it does not let me say that the format or the extensions are not valid.

I worked for several days on the presentation in PowerPoint. I did not turn off the computer. The computer just went into sleep mode. But at the beginning of the working day, the computer did not come out of sleep mode. After the equipment was overloaded, the presentation stopped opening. I have no idea why my computer shut down. When I turned it on and opened the illustration, I received a message "the file can not be repaired".

The file was damaged after closing the laptop, without turning-off it. Damaged appearance and other files, after closing the laptop without shutting down or saving.

Thank you much for this Recovery Toolbox, I was having trouble with an Pink Floyd Pulse DVD so I used this Toolbox & I am not sure if I followed the instructions right but after I stuck it in my media player which is Power DVD 12 it worked just fine, Thanks again.

I was passing zip files from my phone to an SD because there I had more space. When I wanted to install new ROM from SD on TWRP I got corrupt zip.
