Can't open file ppt

By SeymourHervieux ·
Tags: Software
I had a problem with the Power Point. Recently did an upgrade. Changed motherboard platub video card and hard drives too. After transferring the data from the old hard drive to the new, it was found that the files do not open Power Point.
All software is the same as it was. Not only open these files. For me is a mystery how this happened. Perhaps an error occurred while copying files. This is not critical for me to lose these files. But even so, I would like to restore them.
Please tell me a way to restore them. Maybe there is some kind of program? I already tried to recover using a standard data recovery. It did not help.

Hey there!
Try to connect the old hard drive and open these files. Then, when they open, then make a copy of them to the new drive. I think it can help.
If this does not help, then I think your files are damaged. In this case only special programs for data recovery can help you. I do not know what is best. But you can try this:
I remember once I used it in a similar situation.

If you are using PowerPoint 2003

Nope, the file is really corrupt
If your file is truly corrupt, there are a number of things you can try to recover it.

Use Slides from Files on the Insert menu.
Locate a TMP file.
Open the presentation in Microsoft Office Word.
Move the file to a different place.
Open the file in a different way.
Use Safe Mode.
Use Damaged Presentations Troubleshooters.
Try a third-party recovery tool.
Use Slides from Files on the Insert menu
Sometimes you can recover some or all of a corrupt presentation by clicking Slides from Files on the Insert menu. Use the following steps:

Open a new blank presentation.
On the Insert menu, click Slides from Files.
In the Slide Finder dialog box, browse to your corrupt file.
Click Insert All.
If clicking Insert All doesn’t work, try clicking Insert to insert individual slides.

NOTE If your corrupt slides do insert, they will take on the blank presentation formatting. You can apply the original design template to correct this. You can experiment by selecting the Keep source formatting check box in the Slide Finder dialog box if you want. The real goal, though, is to get your information back. You can reformat it if necessary.

All these solutions you can find on:
