Hi @Spk2chandan,

Recovering a deleted Excel sheet from your Android device is possible in certain situations. Here are steps you can take to try and retrieve a deleted Excel file:

  1. Check the Trash or Recycle Bin: If you recently deleted the Excel sheet, it may still be in the Trash or Recycle Bin on your Android device. The specific location and name of this folder may vary depending on the app you used to delete the file, but it's usually easy to find. Once you've located the Trash or Recycle Bin, look for the Excel sheet you want to restore and move it back to its original location.

  2. Check your cloud storage: If you have cloud storage enabled on your Android device, there's a chance the Excel sheet may have been saved to the cloud before you deleted it. Check your cloud storage account (such as Google Drive, Dropbox, or OneDrive) to see if the Excel sheet is there. If it is, you can download it back to your device.

  3. Contact the file owner: If the Excel sheet was created by someone else, you may need to contact them to ask if they still have a copy of it. If they do, they may be able to send it to you.

  4. Use File Recovery Apps: There are several third-party file recovery apps available on the Google Play Store that can help you recover deleted files. One such app is "DiskDigger," which can scan your device's storage for deleted files and potentially recover them.
  5. Contact Your IT Department: If the Excel sheet is related to work or is part of a company-owned device, you can contact your IT department or support. They should have backups to recover (restore) the deleted file.

Hi @Spk2chandan,

Hi @Spk2chandan,

I understand that you've tried all the suggestions I provided to recover your deleted Excel file but haven't been successful. In this case, it may be difficult to retrieve the file if it has been permanently deleted from your device's storage. However, there are a few additional things you can try:

  1. Check the Recently Deleted folder in the Files app: The Files app on Android devices sometimes keeps a record of recently deleted files for a limited period. Check the Recently Deleted folder to see if your Excel file is still there. If it is, you can restore it from there.

  2. Use a data recovery service: If you're still unable to find your Excel file, you may need to consider using a professional data recovery service. These services have specialized tools and expertise to recover data from damaged or formatted storage devices. However, data recovery services can be expensive, so it's important to weigh the cost against the value of the lost data.
    If you're comfortable with this and your device is rooted, you can explore options like Dr.Fone, iMobie PhoneRescue, or Tenorshare UltData for Android.
