Editors' Review

Advanced Excel Repair is a simple but powerful tool for recovering and repairing damaged or corrupted Excel spreadsheets. It's designed for businesses and others who rely on Excel, for whom a lost or damaged file can be either a nuisance or a catastrophe.

Advanced Excel Repair has a simple, attractive dialog-based interface with tabs for Repair, Batch Repair, and Preferences, although Preferences covers nothing more than selecting a directory for temporary files and the internal process buffer size. The default tab, Repair, is dominated by a log display, a progress bar, and a Start Repair button, which offers options for recovering cells and formulas. The Batch Repair tab offers a list view of files to be repaired instead of a log view. We selected the Repair tab, opened an archived Excel file that had given us trouble in the past, and clicked Start Repair. Advanced Excel Repair gave the file the once-over, quickly verifying it and saving it to our selected directory. The file opened normally in Excel. Clicking Save Log let us save the repair log, an essential feature in an enterprise environment.

While our Excel file wasn't badly damaged, Advanced Excel Repair made quick work of sorting it out, and the file opened and functioned normally afterward, which is all we asked. The program proved as easy to use as DataNumen's other Office recovery tools, too, with which it shares a basic family resemblance. Since businesses rely on Excel spreadsheets to save their critical financial data, a tool like Advanced Excel Repair can quickly pay for itself, not only in time saved in recreating the data (if possible) but also in keeping the original time spent preparing the spreadsheets from going down the tubes. No one wants to do work over again, much less pay for it twice.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Advanced Excel Repair 1.4. The trial version only saves the first 30 recoverable cells.
