  • Windows 98/Me/2000/XP/Vista/7/8/10/11 or Windows Server 2003/2008/2012/2016 and above


Just install Illustrator Recovery Kit and use the DEMO version to check whether the file can be recovered.


A copy of data in the Post Script format is often saved in the source project in addition to the Illustrator format for compatibility purposes. Illustrator Recovery Kit repairs and saves each data format to a separate file:

  • Adobe Illustrator to .ai files
  • Post Script to .pdf files

In some cases, the program manages to save more data to a .pdf file. You can verify it by opening the file in Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat. In this case, it's even more convenient to convert the .pdf file to the .ai format using any suitable converter. Otherwise, do the following:

  1. Open the .pdf file in Adobe Acrobat
  2. Save the file in the .ps or .eps format
  3. Open the saved file(s) in Adobe Illustrator
  4. Save the project to an .ai file


Since, as a result of recovery, it is sometimes possible to recover data in Adobe Acrobat format (.pdf files) more than in .ai form (Adobe Illustrator), users must convert PDF files to AI files correctly.

What is the reason that the restored .pdf file is larger than the restored .ai file? The .pdf file is larger due to the added compatibility of Adobe Illustrator files with other Adobe products. You can undo this compatibility manually and reduce the size of files with Adobe Illustrator graphic projects. But this is not very convenient in subsequent work with the file of the graphic project Adobe Illustrator. It is convenient to use Adobe Acrobat to convert PDF files to AI files. So, to convert PDF to AI:

  1. Open the restored .pdf file in Adobe Acrobat
  2. Select – File | Save as…
  3. Specify the file type – Encapsulated PostScript (*.eps)
  4. Click – Settings... button
  5. In the Range section, select – All
  6. Click – OK
  7. Click – Save
  8. Open saved .eps file(s) in Adobe Illustrator
  9. Select – File | Save as… in the main menu
  10. Now select File Type, indicate Adobe Illustrator (*.AI)
  11. Click – Save button

Converting PDF to AI can also be done using third-party services or special tools.
