Data Recovery Software Helps in Mac Data Loss Situation

Lost files can be a nightmare, and being unsure if things that were deleted will be recoverable makes it quite a bit worse. In this post I got a chance to check out the data recovery software for Mac data loss situation, and it has all the makings of the best little tool I hope I don’t need to use.

The Data Recovery for Mac is a utility designed to do two things: scan and target your lost files, and then recover them back to you. Any device, local or remote, internal or USB/Firewire that your Mac can see and mount as a drive is fair game for scanning-although be mindful of the size of the disks you choose to scan; as with anything, larger disks take longer to complete.

How Does It Work?

After downloading the trial version and then drag it to Applications, you start the Data Recovery for Mac, the interface is almost too simple. I thought I was missing something when the option-yes, the one option of Scan Now-was the only button available.

Note: In the trial, recovery is not available, but regardless of version, the scanning stuff is extremely straightforward.

Simply select a disk to scan for lost files in the left hand column, tell the application if you wish to scan only deleted items or deleted and regular items, and click Scan button. Then wait and watch the progress bar slide across the bottom of the screen.

When the scan completes a list of all the files found during the scan, is displayed with the middle pane of the application window displaying a list of types of files found. When a type is selected, the left column displays all of the files of that type that were found. You can preview if the files you target to recover. (Pay attention, only photo files can be previewed.)

What about Recovery?

To recover a file, again paid version only, you simply select the file or files to recover and click the Recovery button. Clicking recovery will prompt you for a location to recover the files and for a folder name. The folder created will contain the recovered files. When the files have been recovered, you will get a pop-up letting you know the process is complete.

Because the scan of the hard disk took quite a while, when I was able to try recovering a file, there were no external disks attached to recover the file into, so I needed to recover it to a location on the hard disk, which prompted the warning dialog. This is the reason why I really like this software.

With the warning acknowledged, the software will warn you that you are not able to save the recovered data to the path where your lost files were stored before. This can help you in avoiding the data overwritten situation!

The experience of using the Data Recovery for Mac was very painless. There was no need to ask for help or look online to figure out how the application worked and what it was all about, and the pricing for the program seems appropriate as well.

Conclusion-Backup is the King Though You Have This Software

Backups are great and can be extremely helpful, but they don’t help you go back to the copy that was just removed from the trash. Though the software actually works, but it is not a replacement for backup, but a companion to them. So build a backup for your files is a good idea to protect your files away from the data loss problem. Get more information please go to our official website
