How to repair a PDF document RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I am having a problem trying to open a PDF file. Every time I attempt to open, Adobe Reader loads, but displays a rather cryptic error message: There was an error opening this document. Access denied. Can anyone suggest a way of recovering this file?

  • Make these steps:

    Step 1

    Open your favorite Web browser and click “File” from the toolbar.

    Step 2

    Click “Open” and then click “Browse” to find the PDF file on your hard drive. Select “All Files” from the Files drop-down menu and select the “PDF Filename” of the file you think is corrupted.

    Step 3

    Click “Open” and then click “OK.” If the file opens, then the server is the problem, not the file. If you get an error message, you can try to repair the file.

    I think so far you would have tried multiple solutions and tips to recover from this issue, i suggest you to go through this thread on- http://www.filerepairforum.com/forum/adobe/adobe-aa/pdf/417-%E2%80%8Bdamaged-pdf-file-cannot-open

  • Make use of PDF Toolkit it is absolutely free, how it works see below:

    - Click the "PDF Toolkit" link in the Resources section to download the PDF Toolkit program. Double-click the downloaded file and extract the contents into any directory on your local hard drive.

    - Double-click the "Setup.exe" file and click "Next." Click "Install." Click "Finish" when the installation is complete. The PDF Toolkit program will open automatically.

    - Click the "Repair a PDF" button. Click "OK." Click on the corrupted PDF file to select it and press the "Open" button. The PDF Toolkit program will repair the corrupted file and add "_fixed" to the file name, while saving it in the same directory as the corrupted file.

  • Hello Nicholas,

    The current forum is for developers (Office related questions). What Office application do you use for opening a pdf file? What code do you use to open a file?

    Anyway,  I'd suggest asking non-programming questions on Microsoft Community forums instead.

  • Hi.

    You can recover your PDF file along with its entire contents included. Sysinfotools PDF Recovery Tool supports recovery of text as well image fro the PDF Format. This way, it becomes easy to repair corrupt PDF files consisting of graphics, text, as well as images can be recovered without compromising on data integrity or loss.
