Everyone’s welcome to download and start protecting and recovering their data since Disk Drill beta is completely free, and has absolutely no functioning time limit staying free forever.

CleverFiles Disk Drill offers several data recovery methods: deep scan, quick scan and recovery from its own Vault. Disk Drill supports all file systems and will attempt to recover your data even from not partitioned media including hard disks or memory cards with corrupted file system, etc. Disk Drill knows a lot of most popular formats and their binary signatures so it can find deleted data and recover it even when there’s only physical (raw, binary) access to your drive. You can easily recover your lost photos, music, documents, archives, videos and other data with the new software by CleverFiles. Disk Drill has been designed natively for Mac OS, it has a clean Mac-style wizard-like user interface, is very easy to use and features a very detailed explanation of its functionality and data recovery steps in a handy built-in tutorial.

Disk Drill also protects your data from unexpected damage by implementing its own Recovery Vault technology which monitors your file activity in the background and solves the problem of effective data recovery from HFS/HFS+ Mac file system. It also supports protecting FAT partitions, but the real power is revealed when you recover data from Mac drives. It’s widely known that when a file is deleted in Mac OS from HFS/HFS+ partition, all its details are completely erased, and even if you manage to recover the file in a binary mode, its name, location and other properties are completely lost. When recovering many files in binary mode you get the long list of randomly named items, and it’s hard to tell where the needed data actually is. However, if your disk was protected with Recovery Vault by CleverFiles, this is no longer a problem! In just a few minutes (or even seconds) Recovery Vault will show you which files were deleted preserving all their properties, names, locations. And you are ready for guaranteed recovery. With Recovery Vault you are protected from hard disk problems, unexpected data loss due to crashes, erroneous re-partitioning, etc. More than that, Recovery Vault has absolutely no impact on your Mac’s speed, as it was designed specifically to work in the way to not distract a user from his regular computer-related activities.

Remember, that Disk Drill is free while it is in beta. CleverFiles will officially announce the end of the free campaign with the release of Disk Drill final some time in future. No final release date has been specified yet.
