How can I find out whether SecureRecovery fo Works Spreadsheet will repair my file?
SecureRecovery fo Works is one of the most powerful data recovery programs available for Works spreadsheets, and it is specifically designed to recover corrupted or inaccessible information. Some factors that can affect recoverability include the location of corruption and the size of the targeted file.
The most reliable way to evaluate SecureRecovery fo Works is to download the free demo. This will allow you to determine whether your spreadsheet is recoverable and whether you will lose access to any critically important elements.
Is the demo program limited? How is it different from the full/commercial version?
Yes, the demo version of SecureRecovery fo Works can only recover some of the text from the spreadsheet. It uses demo strings to replace text and some objects. You can look at the demo output and see exactly what will be recovered by the full version.
We recommend backing up all of your Works spreadsheets (including corrupt files) before running either the demo or full version of SecureRecovery fo Works.
Where can I find out about the differences in the product license options?
On our Licensing page, which has the full details of the Enterprise, Service and Standard license options.
My recovered spreadsheets seem to work, but they are smaller than the source files. Why is this?
Permanently damaged data is not recreated by SecureRecovery fo Works. Instead, it is left out of the recovery file entirely, so the new spreadsheet will be smaller than the original. This is an expected result of the spreadsheet repair process and should not raise concerns.
Additionally, SecureRecovery fo Works Spreadsheets is unable to recover charts and OLE objects. The absence of these elements can contribute to the size discrepancies. The demo will often create spreadsheets that are much smaller than the originals due to the presence of placeholder strings.
Can I run SecureRecovery fo Works Spreadsheets through the command prompt?
Yes, if you have either the Service or the Enterprise license. Use the command below to prompt the application to run, without angle brackets.
For patterns, you may use ‘*’ as a representation of a group of symbols in the file name. You may use ‘?’ for individual characters or symbols.
If I make a batch file, what steps should I take to make sure that SecureRecovery fo Works operates as expected?
Make sure that you have created an output directory for recovered spreadsheets, and make sure that you have properly declared the output directory before you start the process. Create backup copies of your spreadsheets prior to your recovery attempt.
