Old PDF files now show as Corrupted

I have some old PDF files that were saved in my vault way back in 2014/2015 at that time they were fine but now when I try to access them I get a file corrupted error massage.
Is there way to fix theses files.

If you don’t have a backup, there is no way.

Cryptomator is an encryption tool, it does not provide a protection from data corruption or bit rotting.

That said, if the vault is stored in the cloud, you should try if your cloud provider offers a restore feature. Then you can restore an older version of the vault and try if the files are still corrupted. Please don’t forget to save your current vault somewhere else to not loose any data.
