DBF Doctor v.1.24 Quickly Revives Corrupted DBF Files with Minimal Data Loss

Astersoft Co. Ltd. announces the release of version 1.24 of DBF Doctor, a powerful tool that recovers damaged DBF files. DBF Doctor performs an in-depth analysis of headers and data structures within damaged files. It then accurately restores damaged data within minutes using powerful built-in artificial intelligence procedures that automatically restore DBF data without manual intervention. This makes DBF Doctor especially useful to people who have no knowledge of DBF recovery techniques. Advanced users have options to recover data manually. The intuitive display identifies damaged records in red so that they can quickly locate and repair them.

DBF Doctor recognizes all popular DBF formats, including Dbase III/IV, FoxPro, and Visual FoxPro. DBF Doctor is designed for ease of use and maximum productivity in the Windows environment.

The intuitively transparent interface allows anyone to start working with the program in a couple of minutes without tutorials or lengthy training. To start a recovery session, users select a corrupt file and open it in DBF Doctor. The recovered file contents will quickly be displayed. The repaired file can then be saved to a new location or the file data structure can be printed out.
