missing personal.xls

By mihouser ·
On of my users is running Excel 2000 when he opens his macros non of them are there. I did a search (searching hidden files. Also, turned on show hidden files in windows explorer) and turned up the shortcut for personal.xls but I couldn't find the real personal.xls file.

You may want to try some recovery software.

It has likely been deleted if a search does not turn up the file. If it isn't in the recycle bin, try some recovery software. You are more likely to be able to recover it if the loss was recent, and the drive has not been in heavy use. Otherwise, it may be overwritten already.

If you don't already have recovery software, or something like a protected recycle bin (a la Norton), try these:
or search

Check also to see that the file has not been renamed or saved under a different name. A backup file may exist with a different extension.
