Recover a previous version of an Excel file

November 2016




Issue


I did a bad manipulation (save an Excel file) and want to know if there is a way to recover the previous version of the file...

Solution

  • Go to the folder where the file is stored and make a right-click (without opening the file)
  • Go into Property and click on the Previous Versions tab, then selected the date for which you want the file to be restored.


Thanks to dbarney for this tip.
