Hi dimensionav

Please have a look at this link.
This will give you an Idea of reason why some files can get corrupted. But remember, this is only a Top 5 major cause.

I always recommended to do backups of your files regularly. At least, you can always go back to a backup file when your file get corrupted.

Unfortunately I haven't, the file size is 2.5Mb (as the original should be) but there is a bunch of blank space in it.

I'm really sorry to hear that.  It happen to me a couple time also in the past. Since then, I'm backing up everything.

I was also able to fixed some files with Stellar Phoenix Excel Repair. But not all the time.
