    Corrupted File

    Can someone take a quick look at this and tell me if this is salvagable?

    The file still looks like there is data in it, but clearly there's a lot of what looks like code, and who knows what else.

    The file is not salvagable in my opinion.
    It looks like a recovered cross-linked file to me.
    A cross-linked file is rarely of any use.
    There are lots of references within the file to "com.apple.print.ticket" etc.
    Did the file come from a dongle that was used on an Apple Mac computer??
    It doesn't look like an Excel file to me in spite of the filename.

    Thank you. It is an Excel file, corrupted by an otherwise excellent student.

    Yes, it was plugged into a Mac. No, she doesn't think there was a dongle involved.

    Unless someone else has a suggestion for how to recover the data, I'm content to close this thread.
