Irvine Data Recovery Specialist Known for Reasonable Pricing Discusses PDF File Format Issues

Irvine, CA-based Hard Drive Recovery Group is a company whose services go well beyond that of just helping clients get back lost computer data. Evidence of this comes in the form of the many informational data-related blogs that the company regularly likes to post to its website. This includes its most recent post which talks about how to make ultra-common PDF file format data more useful; especially when it comes to editing these trustworthy and popular types of data files.

A company representative stated, “We posted this new blog because as data recovery experts, we are very familiar with the most common types of file formats that computer users work with. Over the years, it also has become very clear to us that most people working on laptops and PCs are not making as much use of PDF-type file formats as they can. Those who read our latest blog and are not familiar with the useful PDF file information that’s in it will then be able to do much more with this oft-used type of file format after reading it.”

The new Hard Drive Recovery Group blog started by saying that PDF file formats should be familiar to anyone that uses their computer very often. It’s a popular file format for businesses because the people that access a document cannot affect the original document’s state at all. This leads to much stability around the workplace when it comes to file sharing. The new blog also clearly stated why this inability to edit a PDF document is good in some ways, it’s also this file formats Achille’s heel when it comes to working with it. Next mentioned in the new blog article is that PDF-related applications such as Adobe Acrobat are under-utilized by computer users. That’s because most people mistakenly see them as just a means to open and read PDF files. In reality, Adobe Acrobat is a computer program that almost anyone can access that can do much more than that with PDF files. This includes being able to add comments next to the text and make some small edits. Total editioning features can be accessed with the purchase of Adobe Document Cloud. A subscription service that can be purchased by individuals or through a business account. The article warns businesses to be careful though because the more employees that have access to Adobe DC, the more it will cost.

Also discussed in this latest Hard Drive Recovery Group blog is that other apps will allow computer users to edit PDF files. Therefore, making the PDF file format a much more useful one. Some of these 3rd-party apps are also obtained by purchasing them outright or getting a monthly subscription to use them. Many will let also let a user do a limited amount of editing for free and for more extensive editing an upgrade will need to be purchased. Some also have a free trial period before payment is required. These 3rd-party PDF editing programs include PDF Xchange, PDFsam, and Sejda Online PDF Editor. The post mentioned that there are apps available for phones that will allow someone to edit PDF files for free. A great way to go if only a few edits need to be made to a PDF document. Lastly, this recently posted article talked about other ways that edits can be made to PDF files. This refers mainly to converting PDF files into other file formats. This includes such formats as those used by the popular Microsoft Word and Google Docs. There are very few computers that don’t have one or the other of these file formats ready to use.

The company representative added that they have 30-years of experience recovering PDF and other file types from hard drives that have crashed. So, no matter what file type was stored on a computer drive that failed, they have a very high success when it comes to retrieving lost data. Those in Irvine and the surrounding areas that can’t access computer data because of a hard drive crash or other computer memory component failure can contact the Hard Drive Recovery Group by phone, email, or by filling out the form that’s found on their website.
