Nice application! Much, much faster than “PC Inspector Smart Recovery” application using VMWare

    I tried free version of Disk Drill on several of my external HFS hard drives: recovery works perfect!

    OK, been trying to break this but can't… It just does what it says on the tin… It’s an app that I will keep at hand for all the Macs at home… Not only well prepared but with a GUI that looks good.

Disk Drill Mac data recovery software available for free at cleverfiles.com. Not a bad free Christmas present for Mac owners!
  • Disk Drill offers a solution to data recovery that I found to be interesting enough for a chin rub and a thumbs up. In fifteen minutes it had found over one thousand deleted images. One thousand! This app scored high on my list of awesome Mac apps. Cody Fink
  • I would like to thank you all again for this great piece of software. In the past I have tried various recovery software packages but Disk Drill is so simple to use, there is no great learning curve, and it works every time for me. Deda ARBEZ
