Disk Drill 4 finds more data. It’s our best Disk Drill ever.
Easier access to numerous features + faster and more informative scans + simple yet powerful management of found items + embedded preview = the elevated user experience! Enjoy simpler scan progress notifications and embedded tutorials.
Updated FAT32, NTFS, HFS+ and APFS recovery algorithms, powered by Disk Drill’s clever scans, simply find more recoverable files. In many test cases we’ve seen up to a 200% recovery efficiency and quality boost.
Securely delete any files and folders, for good! This new free module will destroy unwanted files on your storage device beyond any future recovery.
Analyze your Time Machine backups and safely extract any data you may need. No need to restore or roll back your historic snapshots.
Deep Scan is one of the most advanced Disk Drill’s recovery algorithms. It works even when hard drives lose their formatting and disk space is marked as unallocated. This Disk Drill release concentrates on raw photos and videos, and substantially improves their recovery in so many way.
While it’s still close to impossible to recover deleted data from T2-protected storage devices, and we all know how tricky SSD recovery is, Disk Drill 4 goes beyond T2 protections and ensures you no longer get empty scans on those drives. You can now extract the existing data in case of its accidental corruption or partition issues.
* This is a developing feature, and a priority for our team these days.
We haven’t just brought the long-awaited Dark Mode to Disk Drill, we’ve also optimized it for the new macOS in terms of features, internal technologies, code, speed, etc.
Disk Drill’s iOS recovery not only gets highlighted in the new sidebar as a separate recovery mode, we’ve also added support for the all-new Apple’s iOS 14.
Got an unsupported disk image that you would want Disk Drill to scan for lost data? We are adding the support of DSK, BIN, DAT, RAW, and DD formats to our arsenal.
We are adding Data Shredder and Free Disk Space Erasure as separate free extras that help prevent further data recovery. In addition to your entire drives, Clean Up mode can now map specific folders.
With every new minor and major release we are adding new features, polishing the familiar ones, advancing our algorithms. With Disk Drill 4 for macOS we wanted to invest our best talent into the most important features for the majority of our customers, our powerful data recovery methods, like Quick, Deep, and Clever Scans, Search for Lost Partitions, etc. And we believe, we achieved many of these goals since Disk Drill 3.
However, we couldn’t but improve multiple other sides of our brainchild, and here are just a few of them:
Local Time Machine snapshots are now included in scans for lost data
More informative and effective pausing and resuming of scans: improved clever scans that require uninterrupted scanning time
Substantial Deep Scan speed improvements when scanning for raw image formats
Improved recovery of fragmented directories helps with locating original file names and structures
Dynamic monitoring and detection of newly connected or changed devices and partitions
Increased installation speed
Portable Mode enhancements when running Disk Drill without actual deployment onto a live system
Disk Drill can be launched in Recovery Mode through Terminal without the need to create a bootable drive
Better notifications on filtered objects, background scans, and more
Multiple data protection improvements in Recovery Vault and Guaranteed Recovery
Faster scans and data removals in Clean Up mode
Better listing of RAID arrays available for recovery
