Then, under Documents, check the box next to the presentation file extension you need (PPT and PPTX for PowerPoint, KEY for Keynote, ODP for OpenOffice, etc.).
Losing a critical PowerPoint or Keynote presentation can be a disaster. But data recovery of presentations on your Mac is possible – and Disk Drill can help.
Even after files are deleted, your Mac often saves an invisible copy of the file for a while, until it is overwritten by new data. Disk Drill will scan your Mac and check for any hidden files. It can also help repair lost or corrupted partitions, so if you’re having trouble seeing files on an external drive, it may be able to help with that too.
Check out the steps below for a quick overview of Mac data recovery for presentations. The best part is that the Basic edition of Disk Drill is completely free, so there is no risk in downloading the app and giving it a try.
Download the free Disk Drill Basic Edition app. Once you have downloaded the installation file, double-click it and follow the installation instructions. When finished, launch the app.

Since you know the exact file type you need for presentations recovery on Mac, go straight to Disk Drill > Preferences on the top menu bar. Select the “File Types” tab. Click the “Clear Selection” button at the bottom to clear all currently selected file types.
Select the drive you lost your presentation files on and then click the “Recover” button. Disk Drill will run all of its Mac data recovery tools for presentations and display the results. Carefully review the list of files presented and note that your original file name may have been lost. You can preview each file by clicking the “eye” icon next to each file name. Be sure to preview the whole file because that is the only way to ensure that the file is not corrupted.
If you have found the presentations you need to recover on Mac OS X, simply select them and then click the “Recover” button. Disk Drill will walk you through the upgrade to Disk Drill PRO and then your recovery process will be complete.
Disk Drill will scan deep when you encounter a case with hardly any file structure left. No matter what type of drive you need to recover – FAT, NTFS, etc. – it'll look for a file signature until it's found. Then Disk Drill will do the best job of putting the fragments together and not only recovering PPT, KEY, or ODP files, but also XLS, DOC, AVI, MP4, JPG, and others.
