One of the best things about Disk Drill is that you can scan your drive and see if your files are recoverable completely for free. Simply download the free edition, Disk Drill Basic, from the cleverfiles.com website to get started with our Apple hard drive data recovery software.
It is best to activate Disk Drill’s data protection features as soon as you install it: Recovery Vault, Guaranteed Recovery and S.M.A.R.T. monitoring. These features will help minimize the chance of data loss on your computer and ensure you can always recover MacBook Air data.
When Disk Drill starts using its Deep Scan feature it doesn't care if your hard drive is FAT, NTFS, or whatever. It breaks all data into a series of bits to be able to collect the smallest pieces into a structure. Disk Drill starts to apply its profound knowledge of file signatures. Once the known signature is discovered, it's easy to restore file types like .jpg, .doc, .xls, etc.
