Recovery Software for Failed Data
Whether your files have been accidentally deleted through a failed save attempt, they can probably be rescued by data recovery software.
Disk Drill is a recovery software that can be used for both Mac computers and PCs and recovers data from almost all types of storage devices.
After you have downloaded the software, open it as you would open any other application.
In the center of the interface is a pane that includes a column reading “Device/Disk.” Listed here will be all devices in or connected to your machine. If you don’t have the files in this location already, you’ll need to transfer them over or at least connect the device so that Disk Drill can read it. You’ll know it’s ready and available if its name appears in this column.
A gray down-arrow to the left of a device indicates that it has sub-devices that you can select from. Simply click on that arrow to reveal a list of those segmented devices.
Select the device you want to recover files from. To the right are buttons reading “All recovery methods” and “Search for lost data.” We can stick with the default “All recovery methods” for now. With that default option selected, click on the blue “Search for lost data” button.
You will now see Disk Drill reading through the files from your selected location. Remember that it’s looking through not only currently available files, but also all the deleted ones.
You can wait for Disk Drill to complete its scan, or you can click on “Review found items” whenever you want. You can also choose to “Stop scanning” at any time by selecting the top-left button pointed to in the image below.
Now you’ll see the scanned files that are ready to be recovered. Click the checkbox of the ones you want to target. You can do this for individual files or for batches. It’s entirely up to your preference. If you want to recover all the scanned files, select “Recover all”.
You can also narrow the files down to smaller segments by selecting the gray down-arrow and clicking the checkbox to the left of the file. Then, choose the blue “Recover” option.
If you click on any single file, you’ll get an image to the right of the pane. That image will either be a blank thumbnail or a whole, previewed image. If a whole image shows up, the file is almost certainly recoverable. If it’s a blank thumbnail, the chances diminish (but aren’t necessarily zero).
Once your files are recovered, Disk Drill will ask where you’d like to store them. Choose any location you want to save to but note the path so that you know where to find the files. With that done, you can enjoy your recovered files and resume your affairs.
