Hetman Excel Recovery

Hetman Excel Recovery 2.6

Hetman Excel Recovery is a dedicated spreadsheet recovery tool

Far from being yet another recovery tool, Hetman Excel Recovery has been specifically designed to locate lost, deleted, formatted, or otherwise damaged Excel spreadsheets and bring them back to life in a streess-free environment and in the most efficient and convenient way. Its combination of highly efficient algorithms with a wizard-like approach makes this Excel recovery tool a must-have for all spreadsheet users.

Losing your business trip timetable is bad enough, but formatting that partition where you saved your ten-thousand-lines spreadsheet for that major project (which, by the way, you forgot to back up) is simply a disaster that may cost you more than just time and/or money. And there is where Hetman Excel Recovery comes to the rescue. Its wizard-like interface will take you through the few steps required to locate, identify, and recover your valuable data. All you have to do is follow the easy and clear instructions provided at each step of the way, and let the program’s algorithms do the hard work for you.

All Excel books that aren’t beyond recovery will be listed and shown to you as thumbnails (or in whatever shape and form you prefer) in just a few seconds if you choose the fast scan option. If you go for the “full analysis” it’ll take a bit longer, but the chances of recovering seriously damaged Excel files will increase. Once your files have been located and listed, you will have the chance of previewing their contents, and not only in a tiny little thumbnail-size window, but in a generous file viewer where you can even move from one sheet to the next, from top to bottom, and from left to right and vice versa until you’re completely sure that that’s the spreadsheet you were looking for.

The program can then save your recovered Excel books on your favorite folder, burn them to a recordable CD or DVD, build an ISO virtual image with them, or send them to another location via FTP. Either way, the wizard will guide you throughout the entire process, taking all the stress out from a usually stressful situation, and most important, producing the expected high-quality results.
