could you upload the file in question so I may have a look? Perhaps the data is still in there...

Try wikisend:

Go to and upload the file there (no need to sign up).
You will then get a page that has the File ID and Download Link.
Copy either the File ID or the Download Link.
Then come back here and paste it in your reply.
