Why I am receiving "Excel File Corrupted" with Windows 10?

Recommended Posts

Are you running into that error for EVERY excel file or just a specific file? What version of Microsoft Office are you running. 2010 or 2013?


Excel has been working fine for me after upgrade. I know that doesn't help you but just giving the "fyi".

Sorry for all the questions, just need to get a clear picture.


1 - Are you getting errors for ALL excel files you try to open?

2 - When are you getting the error?

3- Are the files stored in a OneDrive or Dropbox folder?

4 - If you create new excel files, are you able to open and edit etc? No corruption?

5 - Any chance you can send someone the files and see if they can edit?

I have the same problem as you. When I try to open Word or Excel file received by email or from my drive located on my server i receive this message: Impossible d'ouvrir le fichier. Le fichier est corrompu (Unable to open file. The file is corrupted).


To ''solve'' the problem I need to put the file needed on my desktop before opening it.


It is like Windows 10 block the opening of this kind of file when they come from an external source.
