PDFs are awesome and something that I pretty much use on a daily basis. The thing with PDFs is that it seems like way more can go wrong with these than say a Word document or a PowerPoint presentation. That is why we are taking a closer look at this PDF Fixer which claims to be able to fix ANY corrupted or damaged PDF!

The Program Review
Let’s face it there is nothing more annoying than getting a PDF and having it be corrupted so it either does not open or it does and have the information is messed up! There are some other PDF fixing programs most notably Ghostscript and PDFTK and these can be great, but they are not as in-depth or as good as what we have here with PDF Fixer.
Look, there is a whole lot of tech and science that goes into the way that PDF Fixer works and manages to fix a PDF. You do not need to know all the technical mumbo jumbo, but what this does is it basically takes all of the corrupted data and restructures it so it is no longer corrupted.
They claim that no matter how corrupted the PDF is, this is going to be able to take care of it. While I would probably just stick to doing one PDF at a time. This can let you repair multiple PDFs at the same time which if you have a business, I guess could be a real time saver and save you a lot of hassle in the long term.
I am sure most people will just want their PDF repaired, but there are some other handy features here. For example, if you fix a PDF, you can then export all of the fixed data somewhere else if you want. It will be able to detect a bad/corrupted PDF before you even open it.
While I have not used it, there is a portable version of this available which you can use on your mobile device. So, if you do use your phone or a tablet to read PDFs for work or whatever, you can do that with this. The mobile/portable version of this is a separate download so make sure you download the right one.
One of the best things about PDF Fixer is the asking price. This is not going to cost you a penny, you can download and use both versions for free. I always think that if a program is free, there is no harm in giving it a try. If you do any kind of work with PDFs then this is something you most certainly need to have.
- This is completely free to download and use
- It is made to be as easy to use as possible
- No easier way for you to fix a corrupted/damaged PDF
- The way it can fix multiple PDFs at once could be a real time-saver for you
- The UI is easy to figure out, but it is not exactly nice to look at
- I really cannot think of another con!
