Repair a CDR file

You are reading this article because you probably have a damaged CDR file and want to repair it. There are several ways to repair a CDR file, either online or directly on the computer. All methods to repair a CDR file are based on a recovery scan of the file and then a report of the repaired data.

All repair services automatically analyze the internal structure of the damaged CDR file through a combination of special algorithms tuned specifically for CorelDraw data from different versions of the software.

It is important to notice that not every CDR file could be restored and it is always a good idea to keep a backup copy of any document file you are working on.

In most cases, the damaged file recovery services of CorelDraw, take into account the peculiarities of the data stored for the different versions of CorelDRAW. All recoverable data is identified and controlled. It is possible that some objects or relationships between objects may become broken during recovery, but unfortunately perfect recovery is not always possible and is dependent on how much data in a file was corrupted.
