Spreadsheet Solution – Getting Your Excel File Back

There’s nothing worse than having your Mac suddenly crash and realizing that you haven’t yet saved your Spreadsheet. After all, in most cases, that means you’ll have to start all over again – and given how meticulous things get when you’re working with numbers and trends, that’s definitely disheartening. If you’re willing to do a bit of sleuthing though, you might just be able to regain what you’ve lost. What should you do exactly to accomplish such a feat? Read on and find out.

Getting into AutoRecovery

There’s a chance that Excel itself managed to save the file before the crash completely halted your computer. If that’s the case, you only have to open the program once again and check whether copies of your work have been made. Do take note that these might not be as updated as you’d like, given that their recentness depends on the AutoRecovery’s interval. With that said, after you’ve made sure that you didn’t lose everything you’ve done so far, you might want to tinker with Excel’s options and set a shorter interval.

By the way, if you really want to make sure that you’re not going to start from scratch, it’s best to immediately save a copy of the recovered spreadsheet. Closing the software right after checking what AutoRecovery has managed to do, essentially means that you haven’t seen anything of value – in other words, the software immediately deletes those files and you’ll really have to work right from the beginning. Once again, do not forget to save (through the Save As function, of course).

Prepare for the Next Case

Managing to get your files back for now doesn’t mean you won’t be facing a similar problem in the future. Likewise, there’s no guarantee that you’ll always have a lot of time for troubleshooting. That’s why you have to make sure that you’re sufficiently prepared for another crash. Well, one thing you could do to make the search easier next time around is to set another location for your AutoRecovery backups. Begin by going to Excel’s Preferences menu and going to the Personal Settings screen. From there, find “AutoRecover Files” in the list and click Modify.

You’ll be given the option to choose another folder in which copies of your work will be sent. For most people, the best choice here is to set the Desktop as the directory of choice. Why’s that? It is much more accessible than Microsoft Office’s often-hidden system folders, meaning there won’t be much suspense after restarting your Mac – it wouldn’t even be necessary to worry about your spreadsheet while waiting for the program to load, given that you’ll get to find out your fate with just a glance.

excel recoveryConsider Another Possibility

Lost progress (or losing entire files) isn’t always due to crashes. Sometimes, they’re the outcome of a sudden power loss. If you’re beginning to doubt your area’s power supply, you might want to consider investing in a reliable battery backup. Such a device doesn’t really cost much, but it’s potential in saving you from future headaches is arguably unparalleled. By the way, do keep in mind that battery backups are only capable of providing several minutes of extended use – so once the power cuts, quickly save your work.

On Making the Right Choices

As you should have realized by now, it isn’t enough to just have the necessary knowledge in file recovery. You will also have to rely on your drive for preparedness in staying one step ahead of the problem. Simply put, the more thought you put into keeping your files protected from crashes, outages, or any other issues, the more likely you’ll dodge the most common Excel dilemmas.

A USB-C HUB Might Save USB-C Interfaces on NEW MacBook Pro

You might have heard of four USB-C Interfaces on NEW MacBook Pro. Given the fact that Apple HDMI cable is expensive and one cable matches with one feature, we now check on third party accessories for better solution.

Actually these HUBs come out the time 12-inch MacBook goes public. The above Satechi, for instance, is a pretty good choice. But Arc Hub we introduce to you today will fulfill every demand in interface expansion.

This round HUB comes from Bourge Design. If you have a plan to buy a New MacBook or 12-inch MacBook (with USB-Cs and nothing else), Arc Hub might be what you expect.

This little thing calls 7 types of interface together:

  • USB-C *2
  • USB 3.0 *2
  • HDMI
  • MiniDisplay
  • SD Card Reader

All interfaces are covered in a small round box, and the metal body with glass cover looks very attractive.

The function is very powerful as well. HDMI supports 4K display output, while two USB-Cs agree with the 2nd generation Thunderbolt 3 standard and USB 3.0 reaches a transmission speed of 115Mbps. All Needs Satisfied + Fine Appearance Design, Bourge Design indeed makes a HUB that matches with NEW MacBook Pro.

Arc Hub is expected to go public in January with a pricing of $105.

Here’s the Story about NEW MacBook Pro: Why Just Open the Lid to Start up

Morning News on 31st Oct, there are actually some small features about NEW MacBook Pro not mentioned on the Launch Ceremony, for instance, a small modification expects to lessen the usage of power switch. When your NEW MacBook Pro is off, by just opening the lid, it will automatically power on without pressing the power switch.

This is about Apple Inc.’s special love for simplicity, which is always about Steven Jobs. There was a saying that he liked ideas of design in toasters, a simple product with only one button which you just press to start up, and it will bounce and stop heating after completion. No need to press any other power switch to heat.

This idea holds important influences for many Apple products, among which IPad puts itself forward. Very few users use and shut it down afterward. Starting from OS X Mavericks, clicking power switch means Sleep by default settings. Up till now, most users tend to close the lid and leave it Sleep with very low power consumption.

NEW MacBook Pro keeps this feature and steps further: If you open the lid on power off, it automatically start up for it logically thinks that you want to use it. Thanks to a quicker flash memory, NEW MacBook Pro startup process takes only 10 secs more than wakeup. It is just like another Sleep process.

Steven Jobs has a record that might involve this story:

He admits when death comes in its way, he prefers a faith in afterlife. And he said, “Clap! Then you are gone.” Then he stops with indifferent smile. “Maybe that’s why I don’t like the idea adding an Apple switch.”

Of course the power switch entity is still present (power switch merges with Touch ID on some advanced MacBook), and you can still use it to force a reset.

Why NEW Macbook Pro doesn’t have a SD Card Slot? To No Avail!

NEW Macbook Pro has been very controversial with enthusiasts and abhorrers, and the comments polarize a lot. This is because Macbook Pro has a number of modifications, for instance, all adopt USB Type-C interface, and cancel SD card lot, while it keeps 3.5mm headphone jack which iPhone 7 gives up.

In a recent interview, Phil Schiller, senior vice president of worldwide marketing at Apple Inc. gives positive reaction to many questions, covering the SD card lot and 3.5mm headphone jack. What are his answers then?

Why NEW Macbook Pro gives up SD card lot for camera memory card?

Phil Schiller: We get multiple justifications. Firstly, SD card lot looks redundant, and it leaves a tail outside when you plug it in. What’s more, there are many quick USD Readers, so SD card lot is not a must. And one card lot only reads one card; you still need a card reader if you get many memory cards. So we determine the cancel of SD card lot as a tradeoff. Besides, more and more cameras are equipped with wireless transmission feature, it’s very functional. Such being the case, why a SD card lot? We should say it as a progress.

Why keep 3.5mm headphone jack on New MacBook Pro? Doesn’t it discord with NEW iPhone?

Phil Schiller: It doesn’t. This is MacBook Pro, remember? If the 3.5mm jack is just for headphone, then it’s unnecessary, while wireless is a better solution. But there are still many people use 3.5mm jack to do audio work, so it’s better to keep it.

Actually, the second answer makes a lot of sense, whilst the first one might be farfetched. To have a SD card lot seems not indeed the most portable way. There are memory cards like CF for people to use after all. It is a truth that card reader is a basic device for photographers, but it cannot be used as an excuse to cancel SD card lot. Anyway, Apple has always engaged in “forcing users to accept new habit”, and along the way users think it no big deal over time.
