PDF files are very popular when it comes to dealing with document sharing via network or emails. Invented by Adobe systems and perfected over the seventeen years, PDF is the international standard for capturing and reviewing rick text information from any application on any computer with virtually anyone and anywhere. Just because the document is not application or computer specific, it is quite famous with people. It is considered more safe and secure.
Many times, when user downloads or shares some PDF file online, it gets corrupt or inaccessible and hence the data contained in the file is damaged. For example, if a PDF 'A' is being downloaded and read several times online, there are chances that after some days the document may get corrupt leading to complete or semi data loss.

"There was an error opening this document. The file is damaged and could not be repaired."
