In this how-to, we've broken up the steps by file system. HFS and HFS+ are typically encountered in native Mac OS X drives. FAT systems are found on many different types of devices from flash drives to camera memory cards. NTFS is the file system used with most Windows operating systems. It is possible to scan other file systems as well, such as the Linux EXT3 and EXT4, but we'll focus on the above three for this article.
All of these drives, regardless of their origin, can be scanned for deleted files by Disk Drill. None of these scanning techniques are very difficult to use, but they do vary in approach. Read on for a brief overview of the steps. For more tutorials, see How to Install Disk Drill and How to Recover Lost Files with Disk Drill Basic in our Knowledgebase.
