The Best Data Recovery Software for Mac OS X

Disk Drill is an invaluable do-it-yourself data recovery OS X tool. No other data recovery software for Mac is as easy to use. Whatever the cause of your data loss - accidental deletion, Disk Utility error, data corruption - we can help you get it back.

Recover Data From Virtually Any Storage Device

No matter what type of storage device you've lost data from, if you can normally connect it to your Mac and view the contents, Disk Drill can scan it. Even if you're currently having trouble accessing your hard drive or external device, there's a good chance our free data recovery software for Mac will be able to rescue data from it. We can help if you have:
  • Deleted files from your Mac's internal hard drive and deleted documents from a USB flash drive
  • Lost a partition on an external hard drive and lost music on an MP3 player
  • Erased photos from a camera and erased videos from a camcorder
  • Lost music on your iPod (Nano, Mini, Shuffle or Classic)
  • Deleted books on an e-reader
  • Been unable to access a memory card (SD card, Flash card, XD card, etc.)

Recovery For All Major File Types and File Systems

Disk Drill has several powerful scanning processes, which means Mac data recovery for OS X has never been this comprehensive. File systems that Disk Drill can scan include:

  • HFS & HFS+
  • FAT/FAT32/exFAT
  • NTFS
  • EXT3/EXT4
Our Deep Scan method works on ANY file system - and even on volumes with a missing or corrupted file system. Learn more about our scanning methods...

The list of file types we can recover is equally comprehensive. Our Quick Scan and Undelete Unprotected Data methods can recover ANY file type, but they can't be used in all situations. Our Deep Scan method can be used in any situation and is able to recognize and recover over 80 different file types, including:

  • Photo files like JPG, PNG and TIFF
  • Graphic files like AI, PSD and INDD
  • RAW camera files like CR2, NEF and DNG
  • Video files like AVI, DV and MP4
  • Music files like AIF, MP3 and WAV
  • Document files like DOCX, PPTX and XLSX

Scan and Preview Files for Free

The best thing about Disk Drill is that you don't have to buy anything until you are sure that your data can be recovered. You can scan your drive and preview your files with Disk Drill Basic. Once you are sure that your files can be recovered, you can quickly upgrade to Disk Drill PRO. And if you install Disk Drill Basic before you lose any data, several of Disk Drill’s data protection features allow for free data recovery on your Mac!

Protect Data and Never Lose It Again

Disk Drill also has several free data protection features that really set it apart from the pack. Once you have these features enabled, you’ll never have to worry about Mac data recovery again:

  • Guaranteed Recovery - Keeps an invisible copy of every file you put in your Mac's Trash
  • Recovery Vault - Keeps a record of all metadata for deleted files, so that they can quickly be recovered with names and file locations intact
  • S.M.A.R.T. Monitoring - Warns you of hard drive trouble before it fails

Rebuild, Rescue and Remount

If you have a failing drive, lost partition, or need to prevent precious data from being overwritten during the scan process, Disk Drill has several innovative ways to maximize your data recovery:

  • Backup Into DMG Image - Backs up an entire hard drive or partition from a failing drive onto a new drive as a DMG file
  • Remount Volume as Read Only - Protects a non-system volume during a scan so that your data isn't overwritten by OSX or another app
  • Universal Partition Search - Recovers partitions on HFS+, FAT and NTFS volumes and creates a virtual partition for any ones that are found
  • Scan for Lost HFS+ Partition - Finds and rebuilds HFS+ partitions on your Mac that have been reformatted
  • Rebuild HFS+ Catalog File - Rebuilds the catalog of HFS+ partitions that won't mount correctly
