You can use the program in two different ways. Each way has its own advantages:

  • Restoration of corrupted files using the wizard allows you to work with multiple files across different folders. The program repairs errors and saves files in the folder you specify.
  • Restoration of corrupted files without using the wizard enables you to preview the file contents before saving.

Repairing files using the wizard

You can use a convenient step-by-step wizard to repair and save corrupted files. To launch the wizard, select the “Wizard” option in the “File” menu.

Program for repair corrupted files


There are detailed instructions in the upper part of the wizard window. By following them, you will easily repair corrupted files. The option “Show wizard when launching the program” will let the program automatically open the wizard window every time it is launched. Press “Next” to continue.

Select files for recovery

At this step you must specify the corrupted files to be repaired and saved. Here you have access to the following functions:

  • “Add files” – you can select files that are in different folders for processing;
  • “Delete file” – deletes the selected file from the list;
  • “Delete files” – clears the whole list;
  • “View” – changes the file list display. The following options are available: “Symbols”, “List”, and “Table”;
  • “Sort” – changes the column and direction of the sorting.

Press “Next” to continue.

Choosing the recovery algorithm

At this step you must specify the type of file processing. The following options are available:

  • “Analyze” lets you quickly find and repair logical errors in the file structure. This is enough in most cases.
  • “Research” lets you analyze the file structure in more detail. This method lets you save more information from the original files, but it takes much longer than “Analyze”.

Press “Next” to continue.

Saving repaired files

At this step you have to specify the options for saving repaired files. The following options are available:

  • “Path for saving” – all repaired files will be saved in this folder. To choose a folder, press “Browse” and select a folder.
  • “Overwrite files with the same name” – if you select this option, then files with the same name will be overwritten. Otherwise, if files have the same name, they will be renamed.
  • “Save catalogue structure” – if you select this option, files will be saved with consideration of the original catalogue structure. Otherwise all files will be saved in the folder specified in the “Path for saving”.
  • “Open folder when task is finished” – when the task is finished, the folder that was selected in the “Path for saving” will open.

Press “Next” to continue and wait for the task to finish.

Selecting the file to be recovered

In the left part of the program’s interface, select the folder that contains the necessary files. Comfy File Repair will display the directory contents and you can select the corrupted files form the list.

Viewing the file contents

If the file’s logical structure is corrupted, then the program will not be able to display its contents. To view the file contents, you have to use the “Analyze” or “Research” functions from the “File” section in the main program menu. The functions become available after you select the file.

Saving repaired files

After carrying out the functions “Repair”, “Save” or “Save all”, the program will launch the “File saving wizard”. Follow the wizard’s instructions to successfully recover and save files.
