No more corrupt files

File Repair is a useful tool for repairing files that have been corrupted.

Has a virus destroyed some of your files? What about a network interruption or another unforeseen event? Antivirus programs can locate and eradicate malware on your computer, but you'll probably need another tool to help you attempt to repair corrupted files.

File Repair is one of those tools. With a very simple interface, most users will find File Repair easy to navigate and use. Essentially what the program does is scan files on your PC that are in some way damaged and creates a new, usable file where it can extract as much of the recovered data as possible.

File Repair works with corrupted Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint files, as well as Access databases, Zip or RAR archives, images, PDF documents, videos and even some music files. Files that your computer says are not in a recognizable format, that are unable to be read or accessed and ones where the application in question can't open the file type are what File Repair has the best chances of fixing.

In fact, the only real complaint some users might have about File Repair is that the interface is quite plain. Some of the files also take a good amount of time to scan, and some might not be able to be fixed at all.

File Repair is a handy piece of freeware that'll help repair corrupted files.
