The first step in lost data recovery on Mac OS X is to download and install the Disk Drill app. Simply click the Download button at the top of this page to begin. Disk Drill Free allows you to scan your drive and determine if your files have a good chance of being recovered. Upgrading to Disk Drill PRO will allow you to complete the recovery process.
The best way to recover lost files on Mac is actually to protect them in advance! This way you never need to worry about it. Disk Drill offers various ways of protecting your data for free: Recovery Vault, Guaranteed Recovery and S.M.A.R.T. monitoring.
When Disk Drill needs to look into the core structure of the files it doesn't care if your drive is FAT, NTFS, etc. Our app for lost data recovery on Mac applies all of its knowledge of file signatures to be able to put the remaining fragments together. Once it identifies the binary signature it easily recovers lost files like .jpg, .doc, .xls, etc.
