In its place(that is in the same folder) is a file without an extension and labelled with eight random letters and numbers, hexadecimal style. It is also the correct size and last edited date. I found if I rename that file with an .xls or .xlsx extension, it will open, and it will include the data from the last save. It's totally frustrating the way it is crashing, but hope this helps restore your data.
    That Worked for me. Thanks very much!!!!!!
