.XLSX is the standard extension for 2007 and later versions of Excel files, part of the MS Office suite.

 

Try opening them in either Libre Office, or if you have a version of Excel older than 2007 you need the file converter package from MS, a free download. Google 'MS Office 2003 file converters'.

Sucks to hear. Few weeks and lots of data old. Still holding my hopes someone else has some ideas, but I was already thinking what you confirmed.

If the file itself is corrupt, then there's little hope of recovery. When drives corrupt and file utilities attempt to recover, it's very much hit or miss whether you'll get any data intact.
