Large Excel files corrupting

Large Excel files corrupting

TROVE
New member | Level 2

Multiple users work on 100+ Gigabyte-sized Excel files. Every so often a file won't open and states its corrupted. Generally have latest OS, Microsoft 365 and mainly accessed from a Mac. One user has an old PC which cannot save >1.0Gb files. He found the latest corrupted file version though I have restored 4 versions going back in time without success. Already this means losing 3-4 days off work. This is costing us lots of time and money.

 

Any thoughts? All suggestions gratefully received.

Hello there @TROVE, thanks for posting your question here. 

Are all users getting the exact same error message when they try to open these Excel sheets?

If so, a screenshot of it would be super helpful. 

Also, does it happen consistently to every Excel file or specific ones?

Give me a nudge whenever you have a moment to check this out, cheers!
