New Corrupt PDF Recovery Tool Repairs PDFs by Data Restructuring
A new freeware tool that repairs corrupt PDF files by restructuring the damaged PDF data
Today PDFFixer.com released their new freeware tool PDF Fixer, which repairs corrupt and unreadable PDF documents by restructuring the damaged PDF data, rebuilding XREF tables and then recovers those PDF documents back.
PDF is a very common document format on the web of people’s daily work. It is a binary coded format generated by virtual printing of various files. Since most of PDF data is compressed, editing PDF files with a text editor will cause data error, or lose part of the data due to network instability during network transfer, which will cause PDF files to be damaged and corrupt. PDF readers and viewers cannot open or repair those corrupt PDF files and would prompt a few error alerts. PDF Fixer is a free PDF repair utility which repairs the XREF table by reconstructing the damaged PDF data, and then restore these damaged PDF documents into readable PDF files.
Some open source command-line tools such as PDFTK and Ghostscript both have PDF repair functions, but PDFTK can only repair PDF information problems, while Ghostscript can only regenerate XREF tables. Once users need to repair a really damaged PDF file, they will find that neither PDFTK nor Ghostscript can recover the file data, and they will keep prompting reading errors. Unlike these two tools, PDF Fixer analyzes the data that still exists in the entire damaged PDF file, then assembles all the object data and repairs it. PDF Fixer can repair many PDF files that cannot be repaired by PDFTK and Ghostscript.
