Disk Drill Media Recovery 1.7 | Mac Os X | 6.6 MB
Disk Drill Media Recovery will recover data from any external drive mounted to your Mac (internal hard drives cannot be accessed by this edition of Disk Drill). Disk Drill is the most user-friendly data recovery software for Mac, it can recover lost data from any external disk you can mount to your Mac: USB flash thumb drives, cameras, card-readers, external hard drives, iPods (Shuffle, Nano, Classic, Mini), mobile phones, other Macs connected in target mode, etc. NB: if you need to recover data from your main hard drive, connect this Mac to another one in target mode. This is also the way to recover lost data from other Macs, in fact. Disk Drill Media Recovery features several data recovery algorithms and works with any mountable disk via USB or FireWire, and even mounted disk images.
Depending on the scanning method, Disk Drill will recover your lost pictures and photos, music, documents, applications, specific files and other data. "Quick Scan" and "Search for lost partitions" are capable of recovering previously deleted data if its meta-data is still stored in the file system, or can be reconstructed. Alternatively, "Deep Scan" works on a lower level and analyzes disks as binary entities; it can get your data back based on file signatures, however, original filenames, locations and properties might be unrecoverable.
Disk Drill Media Recovery supports all known file systems: HFS, HFS+, FAT16 and FAT32, NTFS, EXT3, EXT4 and actually any other file system, or even disks that were formatted or initialized and currently have no file system on them. If your data is still there and recoverable, Disk Drill will get it back for you.
** Disk Drill as a data protection tool **
Many users find Disk Drill's features for DMG backups extremely useful: save your data by creating a Disk Image (DMG) of any failing disk or partition for further data recovery, so you no longer need the original media. Later on you can mount this Disk Image to your Mac and recover data from it.
*NEW* Have you ever moved something to Trash to realize just moments after emptying it that… it was the only copy? Guaranteed Recovery comes to the rescue! Since version 1.5 Disk Drill Media Recovery introduces the much needed "Recently Deleted" feature to your Mac, so you can take your time to recover deleted items even when your Trash is emptied.
Disk Drill can also monitor your ATA, SATA and eSATA disks for hardware failures by polling S.M.A.R.T. status of available hard drives.
Requirements: Mac OS X 10.6.6 or later
