What are file extensions of those files, which are You trying to open now?
What were those before You .. deleted those?
Have You checked Your backups?

Are You sure that file was .xlsx?
If Your change extension to .xls then it would open.
... I don't know or guess - what should be there... ? ... almost empty file.
How about those backups?

Unfortunately, I had these on my computer and these were deleted. I don't have backups or links too. Do you have any opinion on how to get those deleted files without any loss?
