My computer shut down when it had a problem, and I lost a PowerPoint that I spent 3 hrs working on. How do I recover my PowerPoint?

PowerPoint has become increasingly important and popular to educational institutions, companies, and many other organizations to create training materials, product presentations, annual reports, and much more. It's nerve-racking when your well-designed and valuable PPT presentations are lost, especially when your PPT presentations were made with great shapes, animations, images, media player files, sound files, tables, word art, basic shapes, stars and banners, callouts and every image object. Unfortunately, you may not have extra time to make such a valuable PowerPoint again. You’ll ask, is it possible to recover lost PowerPoint files? Yes, of course, and there are two ways.

2Two Ways to Perform PowerPoint Recovery

Before you recover the PowerPoint, there is one thing you need to know. If you lost the PowerPoint by saving another PowerPoint with the same name, you will not be able to get the PowerPoint back with its original contents. This is because the original contents of the PPT have been overwritten by the new one you stored, and are now impossible to get back.

Method 1 Recover PowerPoint from Temp Folder

When you find that your PowerPoint is missing, the first thing you can try to do is to search the Temp Folder in your computer. Find any files that are the same size as your PPT and try to open them in PowerPoint. They may be the files you are looking for.

3. After searching, select those files that are the same size as your PowerPoint and try to open them in PPT.

Method 2 Recover PPT with a PowerPoint Recovery Tool

If the first method does not work, try to use a PowerPoint Recovery tool. If your PPT file is not overwritten by new files, it must be stored somewhere on your computer's hard drive, you just can't see or access it.
