Hi Dustin. Here's my scenario. My wife created an excel file using the USB. Unfortunately, she doesn't have a backup. We tried changing the extension and back again, did not work. I tried several recommendation from YouTube, can't seem to find the right answer. Went to Best buy Geek Squad, no help there either. I need to be able to open the file but it's corrupted and for some reason, it created a password ***** my wife didn't put one in. can you help?

Prior to this event, when we tried opening the file, it gave us an error code 0x80070570. We tried opening again and it said corrupt file. Dustin, my wife is checking the charges, she saw the $5 and $42? What is the $42 charge for? I thought it's $39 for remote assistance.
