    Had an excel spreadsheet with my tax reports and how much interest i have to pay and it's completely corrupted. I think I removed my USB while it was open.

    Anyone know how I can recover it?

      You might be lucky - the file might have been cached at some point. Try looking in /tmp for Excel files (or, if you are using Windows, something like %AppData%\Local\Microsoft\Excel maybe).
