Can you recover crashed Excel 2013 file with a file that begins with ~$ ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My Excel 2013 (Windows 10) suddenly crashed and rebooted. When it did, it had an earlier timestamp than I recall last saving. I noticed a file with same name and extension in the same folder and a more accurate modified timestamp to what I had thought to have last saved -- except that it begins with "~$xxxxxxx.xlsm" Is it possible to recover anything from this?

    Newbie enough to get myself into trouble. :0) Eyes are crossed and growth is pain ... but working on it.
