SHX File Recovery

What is a .SHX file?

An SHX file contains a shape or font compiled by Autodesk AutoCAD from an .SHP shape file or .PFB font file. It stores shape definitions, as well as font definitions for displaying custom text. SHX files support many Type 1 PostScript fonts.

How to recover lost .SHX files?

Sometimes while working with a computer, laptop or other stationary or mobile devices, you may encounter various bugs, freezes, hardware or software failures, even in spite of regular updates and junk cleaning. As a result, an important .SHX file may be deleted.

By no means should you think that the only way to recover a .SHX file is always to create it once more.

Use programs for recovering .SHX files if a file was lost after accidental or deliberate deleting, formatting the memory card or the internal storage, cleaning the storage device, after a virus attack or a system failure.
