I get an error that this file is corrupt or not readable. Is it possible to do PowerPoint recovery? Posted the link as I don't have rights to attach files.

If this is a Windows file run sfc /scannow.

 

The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces corrupted and incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.
 
Click on the Start orb rsz_1rsz_1rsz_start_orb_zpshjewtibd.png and then type cmd in the Search programs and files box.
 
In the pane above the search box Programs will appear with cmd below it, right click on cmd and select Run as administrator.
 
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, enter the password, or click Allow.
 
This will open the Elevated Command Prompt, it will look similar to the image below.
 
command%20prompt%20w8_zpsxjmewau9.png
 
Copy and paste sfc /scannow in the command prompt, then press Enter to start the scan.  
 
If the scan finds no integrity  problems the scan will stop.  Type in exit, then press Enter to stop the scan.
 
If integrity issues are found in the scan please post the CBS log using the instructions below.
 
Click on the Start orb rsz_1rsz_1rsz_start_orb_zpshjewtibd.png then type cmd in the Search box. 
 
CMD will appear above the search box, right click on it and select Run as administrator.
 
When the Elevated Command Prompt opens copy and paste the command below, then press Enter.
 
copy %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log "%userprofile%\Desktop\cbs.txt"
 
This will place a new icon on the desktop titled CBS.  Double click on this icon to open 
the CBS log, copy and paste the log in your topic.
 
This log usually is very large, for this reason you should use a host website like Dropbox to post the log.  You can start a free 30 day trial.  Once you have loaded the log at Dropbox post a link to the website.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

It is still useful in troubleshooting. You can also try import the slides by going to the home on a new document, choosing new slide, reuse slides, then from the window that pops up on the right, open a power point file, choose the damaged file.

 

If there is no backup of the file anywhere or a copy in an email attachment anywhere, your options are limited to a third party recovery tool. Most of those will be a paid software and are not guaranteed. But I can say that I use usually in such circumstances the PowerPoint Recovery Toolbox. If you want to try it or use another known program. http://www.oemailrecovery.com/powerpoint_recovery.html
