Today I’m going to rewiew few apps that recovers lost data. There are about 10 applications that make this function, but only three of them are simple, functional and worth considering.
There are important things that you should remember about this software:
I made this list of apps relying only on user’s reviews on forums and discussions.apple.com. Therefore, do not criticize strictly and suggest your soft that helps you to recover data.
Disk Drill is the most popular and well-known soft which has a number of functions from developers.
In fact it is the whole station of data recovery for Mac OS X. It is easy and the price is good. You can download free version at this link.
This soft is also very qualitative. Besides, developer promise quality assurance in the form of money back in 30 days. It has similar functionality as Disk Drill except for a few useful features (link).
This soft is one more option for solving the problem presented for users. Worth to note that this soft has very skimpy functional in comparison with others. It has old interface which looks like something created for OS X 10.6. It’s good only if you didn’t like previous two apps.
So I got this short list of apps. In fact there are a many different apps but only these get positive rewiews (wiki link).
Perhaps, the free soft should be mentioned too. Why am I doing this in the and of my rewiew? Because it won’t suit everyone. I’m talking about TestDisk. There is no GUI and you should know exactly what are you doing while working with this soft. (It’s recommended only for advanced users). To be honest I didn’t get it and was afraid to break something. Mac users with experince surely know about this soft and use it successfully. But I’m not one of them
There how it was: I read forums, collected information about apps, checked demo versions and made couple sreens. I would like to make more but you may be bored to read so many text. That’s why I decided to make a few more rewiews dedicated to the functionlal of these apps.
Do not delete files you needed, do not clean somebody’s Recycle Bin, and other bad things. Do backups regulary, use Time Machine. For those who doesn’t like Time Machine in some reasons there are many alternatives. Sure you need to search for them and pay for them, but they allow you to be confident about safity of your files.
P.S. If all of a sudden …
…You dropped your Macbook and the disc can not be read, you can do two things
There is no other way to get your data back. Apps can not recover data from broken or damaged devices.
