When you open your Powerpoint presentation file, Powerpoint halts or terminates and you receive the following error(s):
The file is corrupted. Check if this file is sent to you as an email attachment through the Internet as files have the tendency to corrupt if they are being transmitted via cyberspace. To deal with this, users can make use of Windows XP's build in Zip function tool or a 3rd party software such a winzip to protect the file before sending across. Also check if you're running an earlier version of Powerpoint to view a file that was created with a newer version of Powerpoint. As prevention is better than cure, you may want to know the right way to reduce the chance of Powerpoint corruption.
There're several methods to salvaging a corrupted Powerpoint file and hopefully recover some data back.
Use Slides from Files
Locate a TMP file
Occasionally when you lose your file, there may be a TMP file available. This usually only happens when you lose the file while saving, or if you were working on it when PowerPoint or Windows crashed. Nevertheless, it’s worth checking.
Open the presentation in Word
Some text may be recovered by using this method.
