  • Don’t you have a data backup?

    In this case, data backup is really important for one to get back all his needed data. Therefore, after experiencing this trouble, you should always learn to make data backups all the time.

    But, right now, stop using this computer in case that any work would overwritten your needed excel files.

    Opt for data recovery software online to restore your data. In fact, as long as you’ve not overwritten them, you do have chances to get them all back at the aid of data recovery software.

    If you really doubt, simply get some free drive data recovery programs at first, such as Recuca, PC Inspector File Recovery, iCare Data Recovery Free... Even though they are free ones online, they really work efficiently and are often recommended online.

    Do not save your retrieved files on the same computer drive in case of data loss.

    Remember to back up all your data from now on in case of similar troubles.

    I am sorry! I have forgotten to inform you the result.

    Thank you for your nice help.

    In fact, I have no a data backup. But, after reading your answer, I have tried to back up my needed data as possible as I can. Thank you for your advice.

    Now, I have restored all of my data back with the help of your recommended free drive data recovery programs, especially the third one.

    Thank you very much!

  • You should learn an impressive lesson to back up all your important data on different drives or locations next time.

    In fact, a couple of days ago, I also had the same data recovery problem for my carelessness. But, luckily, I had found some data recovery tools to help me:
