    Unanswered: Cannot open corrupted excel 2013 files

    It's been 2 days I'm spending on this issue.

    I have one excel file (2 years of work!) which is corrupted.

    "excel found unreadable content in "file name .xlsx" do you want to recover the contents of the workbook?"

    I did try all ressources available on the matter but no success.

    One thing you can do is change the file extension from XLSX to ZIP, then browse the "subfiles".
    It is a long shot, but you may be able to copy out the sheets and place them in to a new workbook via the same method.

    P.S. I'm sure it's obvious now - but you really need to think about a backup strategy!!
