    2. Extraction: It extracts the recoverable data from the damaged file, including slides, text, images, and other multimedia elements.
    3. Rebuilding: The software rebuilds the file structure and repairs any damaged components to restore the file to its original state.
    4. Preview and Recovery: After the repair process, the software provides a preview of the recovered data, allowing users to verify the integrity of the recovered file. Users can then save the recovered file to a desired location.

    .PPTX Recovery is a useful tool for individuals or organizations that heavily rely on PowerPoint presentations and need to recover important files that have become corrupted or damaged due to various reasons, such as system crashes, file system errors, virus attacks, or unexpected power outages.
