When I tried to save the file, it did not complete. And when you closed the application, it damaged the file.

Worked very good to recover an Excel file that I could no more open with Excel and had the message "file format is not valid". I used only once the online version and it was worth to pay it. It could not recover the cell names too, but I can survive without them. I am satisfied and glad this recovery toolbox exists, thanks !

Trying to recover about a dozen large JPEGs in one specific folder from a CD-R. I had managed to copy the bulk of 100's of images to my hard drive but I really wanted these ones. These images wouldn't copy and took too long to open in explorer or Irfanview. The thumbnails looked OK though. After about 20 hours of trying, recovery toolbox "saved" the full sized selected files, showing thumbnails but the full sizes were all sliced and smeared.
