How to recover corrupted PDF file?

Q – I have saved all my data into PDF file format. Once I tried to open the file, they denied to open with an error message “The file is damaged and could not be repaired.” Is there any solution available to recover the corrupted PDF file?


I am suggesting you a solution here and I hope this will help you to fix the issue. You can disable enhanced security mode from the PDF document. To do this, follow the steps –

  • Open Adobe Reader
  • Go to Edit > Preferences
  • Uncheck ‘Enabled enhanced security mode’ option to make sure the Protected View is off
  • Click ok and launch the program again

This might be helpful for you to resolve the issue.
