I must have tried 6 or 7 different 'online free fixes' without success. I tried this one and it worked. Considering it was a 236 page, 90MB document that hadn't been changed for 10yrs...very happy to get it back. I would use this service again in the future.

It is an excellent service, fast, simple to use and does not require any subscription. I was able to repair a damaged pdf file in minutes and at a reasonable cost. It has been of great help to me.

All files with the .pdf extensions gave the same "Root object missing" error. The reason is not known, because Anti-Virus has failed any malware on my computer. Technical support also confirmed that the file was not virus-encoded. Out of 5 broken files, only 2 files were repaired. The service could not return the rest of the files, since the structure of these files was heavily overwritten, as they explained to me in technical support, of course I did not pay for them. Thank you very much for the support and for fixing the files.

Wow guys, take it easy! If you knew which file I was able to repair, you would rip me off 2 times more :ROLF: First, the file was recovered from a formatted hard drive, and then the data was extracted from the damaged .pdf file. I will order pizza for you now!!!

Damn, I have to keep this site bookmarked! I had to parse text and pictures from a PDF document, this was a test task. When I unsubscribed that the file needs to be restored, HR replied that this is included in the TK. I fixed the file through you, did not bother at all, and sent the solved task for verification. The answer hasn't come yet, but I know I got through to work!

If you look at the service through the eyes of a UX designer, then the service is very convenient, you can retrieve the fixed file without help. But if you look through the eyes of the UI, there are too many comments on one page. P.S file was repaired without errors

Often they bring to print pdfs with a large number of pages of different formats that need to be sent to different printers. Tired of writing out page sizes and messing with print ranges. I found a script on the Internet for processing PDF with pages of different sizes in a file, but after updating Adobe Acrobat problems appeared, it periodically began to display a message about a damaged file. I decided to try your online service, it really repaired all the pages with their sizes, but damn the price is tough! I'm afraid not all of my clients can agree with these prices: price for printing + price for repair (if the file is damaged)

My .PDF file was damaged, even in the auto save temp files folder, I could not restore the stable version of the file. Why this happened - no one knows, the virus is blamed on the support forum, although I have an Anti-Virus programs. I had to pay $5 for a partial restoration of the book (restored: 198 pages out of 214)

I needed to fix the damaged .PDF file of the online magazine, the content of this file included articles and advertising between articles. The file was restored without links to articles and advertisements, it does not open when clicked on title of article

Very pleased with the recovery. I restored the .PDF file without payment, since I only had one page with a form where the text was damaged. The service has restored the correct application form.


  • 09-04-2020

The service was fast and the process was simple. In fact, they were able to recover/repair my PDF when several other activity-specific softwares could not. And all for $5! I'd highly recommend it.

This service helps to recover corrupted Acrobat file


  • 04-03-2020

Adobe Reader doesn't read a corrupted file and shows stupid error "File does not begin with %PDF." Any way to fix manually damaged .pdf file like as rename file as "pdfFilename.pdf", "PDFfilename.pdf", ".pdfFileName.pdf" - not working for me. After uploaded file I see that I have got wrong file, and my file is fine. Damn, good that I could see the preview.

Needed a critical document recovered. From googling to a solution to having the file in my hand was less than 5 minutes. Wonderful service! It is an international transaction so watch out for your card vendor tacking on a few extra cents.

Recently I came across a strange thing. On my Samsung computer, Adobe Acrobat is installed to work on viewing and editing large pdf files. But some time ago, for some strange reason, I was unable to open a document with important data about my work. Instead, I saw many blank sheets. I very soon need to send this content to my boss. I realized that the solution needs to be found quickly. But I did not have extremely good ideas. So I turned to a friend from IT. He showed me a couple of resources. There I got a link to this online service. I did not have much time left. I laid my hopes on the service. And he did not disappoint. After the end of work, this online service has restored all my work. There were no more blank pages. I was saved. So I decided to write a praise here. I will continue to use it. I'll tell my friends about him.

I had a bad time. A friend returned my flash drive. But on it for some reason, the files were corrupted. I started looking for a solution. I tried to eliminate everything by several methods. But I was not satisfied completely. Or the free program only partially restored my PDF. Instead of the text with the images, some kind of hieroglyphs and broken pictures were opened. He was able to fix the error in the PDF file. "The root object is missing or invalid." I was able to open it with my Adobe Acrobat X. This time everything was fine. The file was completely restored. Without any hieroglyphics and broken images. I was satisfied. Disadvantages in this service, I have not yet found. But if I find them. I will change my feedback and assessment. The developers would like to continue their work. Over such very useful things for everyone.

The service helped me a lot with the restoration of one of the rare series comics. The network managed to find only the broken pdf file. But this service coped without criticism. Thanks to the developers.
