Introduction

What do you do when the presentation that you have been working on for more than a month now refuses to open -- PowerPoint just displays the message that this presentation is corrupted. I know that's not a very useful message at all. Just in case someone you know is wailing over a corrupt presentation, you can explain to them the many reasons why a presentation can get corrupted -- and you can also ask them why they did not keep a backup copy of their work? But that won't be too helpful! It's better you look at options that will help you recover the presentation -- our review product does just that.
