There are few things more annoying than opening a PDF file and finding an error that prevents you from reading it. That now has a solution, or at least we want to give you an alternative: at FormatPDF we have just launched our new PDF repair tool, a feature that allows you to recover damaged PDFs online. With 1 click and without having to install anything on your computer.
Magic? Not so much. This is a web application that runs a code that allows the recovery of broken PDF documents. What we have done is to connect this code to our tool, so that you can repair your damaged PDF documents without any difficulty. It is as easy as uploading your broken PDF and waiting for the result to open:
If you want to see how it works and you don't have any broken PDFs handy, there is a website called corrupt-a-file.net that allows you to corrupt .pdf files online. Try breaking one of your PDF documents, and then use our file repair tool to see if we can fix it.
Of course, there will be situations where we will not be able to recover your file. In case your document is password protected, we recommend that you make use of our online PDF unlocker, which we launched a year and a half ago.
