How do I recover a corrupt PowerPoint 2013 presentation?

By zvonimirkrstajic20 ·
Basically, I have three separate presentations with the same problem and I have read the other thread regarding this and have tried to load the presentation up through Open Office and this has failed. Does anyone else have any ideas as these are extremely important to me!!!

F.Y.I - When I open the file within Open Office, it loads up a load of hashes in the writer function of the program.

Create a new blank presentation in PowerPoint, and save it under a new name

by leonard20walters In reply to How do I recover a corrup ...

Then, go to Format -> Slide Design, choose to show all documents, and choose the corrupt PowerPoint file. Now, go to Insert -> Slides from File, and select the corrupt PowerPoint file. Make sure you are set to insert all slides, and then import. If that works, great! I suspect, however, that you might crash at that point. If so, try repeating the process, inserting specific slides one by one until you find the problem one. After that, save the file, making sure that Fast Saves are off (in Preferences / Save).

If you are unable to open your PowerPoint files then try PPTX Repair Kit recovery tool. This utility recovers your corrupt and damaged PowerPoint presentations (.ppt, .pot, .pps, pptx and ppsx formats) from MS PowerPoint files.
