I created a 3 sheet workbook in MS Excel for Mac and had been working on it for several days.

When I last tried to save it the dreaded spinning wheel appeared and the program froze. I left it for some time but nothing happened so I used Force Quit. When I reopened the file I found it had only 1 blank sheet and the tab name changed to the file name.

I have a 2009 MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard and MS Office for Mac 2008 and the MS applications have been running slowly recently.

To make matters worse I have no backup as I had been travelling and the portable drive I use for Time Machine had also gone belly up.

Is there anyone with a similar problem, or who knows the possible cause?
