Wrap up

We recovered 2 Excel files simultaneously and the recovery process was complete within a blink of an eye. It uses your own Microsoft Excel software to preview the content and hence has a very light weight installation package. It supports MS Excel versions including 2016, 2013, 2010, 2007, 2003, and 2000 but we found during our testing that it does not recognize Office 2016 Home and Students editions but works perfectly on the Professional Office Edition. Also, if you don't have MS Office installed you will not be able to use the tool since it checks for MS Office presence at the start itself and doesn't let you proceed any further without it. We didn't find any other problem with the tool. There are 2 licenses available for the tool - Single User license and Technician license which seem quite affordable at Rs.2,500 and Rs.12,999 respectively. Using the tool was a breeze for us and we definitely recommend Stellar Phoenix Excel Repair if your Excel files have gone corrupt and you want to recover that precious data safely and quickly.
