CorelDRAW is the well-known, widely-used vector graphics editor. The main format for the files it creates is CDR. Just as any other file formats, the CDR files can also get damaged, corrupted and broken, blocking you from accessing their content. Considering that usually CDR files include entire days of graphical work, losing the data they contain can be quite troublesome. The good news is that resort solutions still exist, and one great example of such solutions is the neat tool called Recovery Toolbox for CorelDRAW. It’s not guaranteed to work every time and for every damaged file, but it’s still better to try it than just to despair and do nothing.
Recovery Toolbox for CorelDRAW works only with CDR files. Other types of CorelDRAW files, like CDX, CDT and CMX are not supported. Anyway, it supports recovering CDR files regardless of the CorelDRAW version you apply, as long as it's, at least, CorelDRAW 10.
This tool is also pretty powerful, as it's capable of recovering compressed graphics objects and images from the damaged files. Furthermore, it lets you preview the repaired CDR files before saving them. The easy-to-use interface can be used with ease by anyone.
In conclusion, it’s worth giving this tool a try when you need to fix broken CDR CorelDraw files, which might be the ones to save your day.
