Fix CorelDRAW File Corruption? Prevent It!

February 16, 2016

I had a client ask if I could help recover a corrupt file. While there is a chance of recovering a file right after corruption occurs, the chances get even more slim over time. For those who want a recipe to try and recover corrupt CorelDRAW files, I’ve written previous tutorials.

Now let’s talk about the file that the client is requesting I help them recover. It is 65 pages! I can’t say it enough, don’t create a single file with that many pages. You are asking for trouble! This is a big part of the reason that I don’t have problems with corrupt files. I know what to avoid!

Not only is this file filled with pages, many of those pages include data imported from AutoCAD with thousands of objects. Combining very large numbers of objects with a very large number of pages is a guaranteed recipe for disaster.

So instead of asking how to recover a corrupt file, ask how you can avoid getting a corrupt file in the first place. When you are given advice, don’t fight against it!
