Clearwater, Florida, USA — “When design file corruption brings your project to a halt, you don’t have time to mess around. You need the file salvaged now! You need help. The newest release of FileFixer gives you that help at a whole new level of speed and ease.
For those readers who haven’t had the pleasure of making its acquaintance, FileFixer is Axiom’s comprehensive MicroStation design file analysis and repair software. There are two versions, the original FileFixer, which specializes in analysis and repair of V7 design files (the design file format used prior to the introduction of MicroStation V8) and FileFixer for V8, which specializes in analysis and repair of MicroStation V8 design files.
The newest release of FileFixer gives you the exact technical data you need to understand what’s wrong with your MicroStation files and how to use FileFixer to get the show back on the road, fast!
Previously FileFixer created a report displaying an error number and a one-line description of each corruption it found. The new FileFixer generates a hyperlinked report that can send you to the exact user’s guide paragraph you need, speeding your full understanding of the problem, so you fix your design file that much faster. Here’s how it works: Say you’ve got a project deadline on your hands and a dead design file that FileFixer is reporting as having error “619″. [Editor's note: FileFixer for V8 reports error 619 for V8 elements which have one or more coordinates dangerously close to or outside the V8 design plane or cube.] You probably don’t have a lot of time to study up on the different forms of file corruption, because your boss wants the project done now. The great thing is there’s no research required! Just click on one of the report’s hyperlinked error numbers and a detailed explanation of that error is displayed on your screen. These new report hyperlinks provide the shortcut that power users have dreamed of and bring an unprecedented level of assistance that newcomers will immediately appreciate.
But that’s just the beginning of the story. Detailed, specific help like this has also been added to all of FileFixer’s settings dialog boxes such as General Settings, Search Settings, Repair Settings and so on.
Using its default settings, FileFixer can detect and repair the majority of V7 and V8 design file corruptions automatically. But, let’s face it, design file corruption is infinitely diverse. Any bit, containing “0″ or “1″, out of the millions of bits in a large design file, can potentially contain the wrong value and corrupt the file. To handle this broad range of potential corruption, MicroStation users may need to use FileFixer’s non-default search or repair settings to fully salvage a file. Each of FileFixer’s search and repair settings are thoroughly described in its user’s guide, including advice for when each setting should be used. But what’s the fastest way to find the exact search or repair setting needed to bring a corrupted file back to life?
New in the latest versions of FileFixer and FileFixer for V8, each settings dialog box now includes a help button that immediately displays the relevant section of the FileFixer user’s guide. Instant access to the precise help you need!
Install the newest V7 or V8 release of FileFixer and you will never be more than a mouse click away from the exact help you need in order to understand why a project file is misbehaving and what to do about it.
Smart CAD Managers know FileFixer is not just for emergencies. They also use FileFixer for preventative maintenance. They schedule regular searches for problems in their project files. FileFixer lets you detect and handle damaged files before they impact your projects.
Entirely new forms of file corruption have been discovered in V8 files submitted to Axiom by MicroStation users. FileFixer is the only application that can open and salvage the most severely corrupted V8 files. There is no other solution.
