In sync with Microsoft

As Microsoft Office files evolve, and we evolve with them.

Every time that Microsoft launches a new version of their popular office software we adapt all our tools to the new version. This is continuous work since Microsoft Office files can change with each new version.

We analyze each new file format at a binary level using reverse engineering techniques. Once we understand the new binary structure and its data objects, we develop new functions to enable our software to read and decode them. After that, a period follows where we listen to our client's feedback to improve and refine the recovery capabilities and performance of the new features.

This is why since 1999, we have released so many hundreds of new versions. This is also why our software can recover so many file elements and can recover files of many different versions: 95, 98, 2000, 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2019 to date.

Thank you!!! Having tried every trick I know (plus a few that I didn't!), and used all of the normal data recovery tools to fix a totally corrupted database without ANY success at all, AccessFIX was the only tool that managed to recover any of the very important data (...)

This is not only impressive, it's astounding! AccessFIX rightly deserves praise (...).

AccessFIX recovered 16 tables where the table definitions were lost - incredible!

Thank you once again. Recovering the days work of 22 industrious people is no mean feat.

Thank you!

Office System IT Lab (Microsoft MVP)

I would like to send a testimonial. My company develops Access applications and sometimes a customer can have a corrupted database (due to network failures).

In many cases it's possible to fix it with MS-Access Compact/Repair utility (on Tools menu) or with MS-JetComp (a free utility available from Microsoft).

In other cases, however, we face a more severe database corruption. For this situations, Cimaware's AccessFIX" has been able to recover the entire database (records, tables, indexes and relationships).

It's a must-have tool.

T. Greyhavens


Thank you for developing such a great product. Our database was completely corrupted and would shut down Access every time we tried to repair it.

I ran your program once and it recovered the entire file with the exception of a single corrupted record.

You saved us an entire morning's worth of work.

Just wanted to give you some feedback. We managed to repair our corrupt Database and didn’t lose any Data.

Thanks a million for your help, and for your great software

J. Enjoy the rest of your week.

Our subscriber list, written in Access, crashed and would not open. "This database is in an unexpected state; Microsoft Access can't open it" was the message I received.

I tried all the available fixes I could find through online forums, Microsoft, etc. A "consultant" wanted a $300 deposit just to begin working on our corrupted database. Then I found your software through a Google search.

Your software repaired the file in less than ten minutes. I wish I had found you guys sooner -- I lost a lot of sleep over this one!

Thank you soooo much. Sincerely,

D. Migowski


... A first inspection showed all forms including my latest changes.

Thank you very much for the good job you did on our broken databases.

I am 100% satisfied!

Ludique Limited

The installation of AccessFix worked perfectly, thanks very much for your help.

I can't count how much time, effort and money this marvellous tool has saved me.

Each time I use it, it does in seconds what would take hours 'by hand'.

Worth every penny. Brilliant.

Robert Johnston

Enterprise Stationery Ltd

I just purchased your software and used it to recover deleted records in Access.

Brilliant. Thanks. Got me out of a problem.

Paul Jordan


Many thanks, I am extremely grateful. Have just purchased and run the program. I must say I am really impressed because I’ve tried these others:

32fsu32.exe, aer.exe, ExcelRecoveryToolboxSetup.exe, Nucleus-Kernel-Excel.exe, RecoveryFix-Excel-Demo.exe, RecoveryToolboxForExcelInstall.exe, RepairMyExcel-Setup.exe, ser.exe and xr-5.0.12746-demo.exe.

They are mostly a waste of time and Cimaware’s Excelfix is by far the best product. I am hugely relieved at being able to recover my file as right now it is very important.

Really pleased with the result! Thank you so much for your assistance.

M. Hulderman

LAN Services Manager

I tried this and was successful. Thanks for your response. We've come to rely on ExcelFIX, as I'm certain others have.

Thanks again.

Thank you so much for recovering my excel spreadsheet!!!

Your company is truly amazing. Not only did you do a terrific job recovering my corrupted file, but you did it much faster than I ever expected.

It is rare that a company exceeds expectations. That was the best money I EVER spent on software!

Thank you for great customer service. I have been very impressed by your ExcelFIX program...

It has saved me time and a few gray hairs!!

Thanks again.

Thanks for all suggestions. We tried different computers, platforms, programs, names, Data Recovery Lab etc. Nothing would open the corrupted file.

Purchased ExcelFIX and quickly restored the files.

Nate Troyer

Thank you so very much.

Your product is amazing and it worked like a charm.

Out of all of the demo software I downloaded; your software is the only one that was able to extract the text out of my corrupt document.

I am extremely happy with my first technical support experience and I am happy that Cimaware software has such diligent and knowledgeable people behind their software. The process of moving the activation to another machine went smoothly and quickly.

It is always comforting to know that there are smart and helpful people behind the software you use.

Dan Raemaeker

Thanks for your help. Your program is truly a miracle.

I cannot thank the creators enough. They have saved me weeks worth or work, and the program could not be easier to use.

My best to you all.

When you develop a great product like this and only charge what you charge you truly understand the need for the product while considering small business budget limitations.

Next to MS Windows & MS Office, this may be the greatest applications I have ever used.

Thank you very much! I had to take a moment more of your time to say thank you.

I manage a national consumer financial firm and we attempt to provide outstanding customer service. I am typically disappointed by other vendors with inferior service that I have become accustomed to.

You read my email. You understood it, since you replied as I asked you to. You responded completely and offered additional information.

Im not kidding, thank you for your intelligent, courteous and prompt response. If you have superiors, please forward this commendation of your personal and your firms outstanding customer service.



Thank-you. In this day and age it is refreshing to see great customer support like this.

Thanks again.
