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".

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 have a Mac Pro, with a with a V. image drive drive created for Windows 7. accessible through Parallels inter phase. I’m using MS Office 2010 with Access Database. Both Mac and Windows side of the computer are housed on a 1TB SSD as the main source of data storage. After doing an auto update on “Windows MS Office” in Nov 2017, I opened Access DB and got a shot banner statement indicating the Database was unstable, only flashed for 15 seconds or so. I opened the DB and it converted all of my DB and quires from .MDB to .ACCDB and have not been able to access any files since. As far as I know the original .MDB were created in 1998-2002. I used 2010 Access without issues for 3 year until the recent update by MS Office.
