After a year using of Disk Drill, I also decided to share my impressions. First of all, I will tell you about the disadvantages. Actually, there are not a lot of them. It is more about a free version. It does not allow me to use all the functions of the application. Then I decided to try a PRO version. And now I will tell you about the advantages. First of all, I work on Windows OS. I guess you know about its reliability. Or the lack of it. The system crashes twice a year. So, every time I have to reinstall the whole system. Sometimes I have important files on the damaged disk. It is the case when the application helps me to recover them. The instruction on the official website is quite clear. So everybody can deal with that. Moreover, it allows recovering data from different resources.
I work with lots of files. It’s hard to monitor all of them. I delete ones I do not need anymore. But sometimes I can delete mix them up and delete useful files by a mistake. Disk Drill helps me in such situations. I used to have a lot of problems. Every time I made a mistake, my boss was anger at me. So, I had to spend extra time creating deleted files all over again. My colleague recommended this application to me. I was using a free version. It has some helpful features. But not the full functionality of the app. That is why I got a paid version. I do not think everybody needs it. But if your work is connected with a big amount of data, and you have to free the storage, I can recommend you to buy that. Anyway, you have an opportunity to try that for free.
You can probably recover some files if you don’t use it. I used Disk Drill to help me recover some files. Down side is all the metadata was lost and everything had a raw file name. It was equivalent to looking through a burned down house but I found stuff.
Get Disk Drill. It’s worked wonders for restoring my sessions after a major crash.
Guys, If you wanna retrieve data from a formatted external hard drive please install Disk Drill & run Deep Scan. Thank you.
I’ve been using Disk Drill for quite a while and now I decided to write a review on it. I think it’s a great recovery tool both for Mac and Windows. I have two computers and I decided to try the app on both of them. I managed to restore many files I needed. It’s difficult to make a comparison to decide where it works better but I don’t think there is any need in it because it works decently in both cases. About its tools. I use disk health a lot, data protection and quite often data recovery. I haven’t noticed any disadvantages of using it. Of course, it’s important to mention that it has a free and paid version and the paid one gives more opportunities. I don’t think it’s surprising for anyone but still. I’d also add that Disk Drill can work with Android and iOS but honestly, I haven’t tried it with my smartphones. I’m sure at “big versions” only.
Many thanks to
for recommending a great and powerful rescue tool in Disk Drill. That is something I’m glad to have in my toolkit for the next time something goes wrong, and it did rescue the data, even if I ran into more trouble mounting it later. <3
Disk Drill located the lost partition and restored everything to an SD card. I’ve copied that twice. The most recent backup is 1/19 so I *think* that means everything can be restored to the new Mac on Tuesday.
Today has been horrifically stressful. Disk Drill was worth $90.
I read the negative comments on the web about this product and do not understand it. Competitors? I used Disk Drill and it recovered a massive amount of files from my 2TB drive. Yes! it is a bit pricey but you get what you pay for, it delivers.
Disk Drill I F***ing love you!
Same thing happened to me recently and a program called Disk Drill saved my life. Got all my files back in the same organized folders with the same names.
I purchased some software a few years ago called “Disk Drill” as one of mine had failed. Managed to save all 15yrs worth of images.
Have you tried Disk Drill? That saved my HDD very recently!!
Disk drill has recovered an absolute treasure trove from what I thought was a dead network drive. Possibly the best birthday gift ever to get some of these back 👌🏼
Downloaded a recovery application called Disk Drill and had it scan the usb file. It found thousands of files which were previously undetectable on the in car viewer and home computer.
No bullshit I accidentally delete the partition on my hard drive the other day & lost majority of my music from 2016-2019. Big shout out to the ppl at DiskDrill for HDD recovery!
oh thank the gods. if the drives are still booting seriously check out Disk Drill… i was able to pull a ton of stuff that i thought was gone. (i nuked 2 backup drives because i swapped their power supplies.)
i use disk drill for mac not sure if its available for windows i recovered 2TB of data on external drive in 17 hours
I got disk drill and I got all the photos form the wedding but it cost me $125
Somehow lost a couple thousand photos from spring to summer last year. Just wiped and gone. Not sure what happened and they weren’t backed up to the cloud. Invested in
Disk Drill and recovered some precious photos. What a worthy investment.
The hovering one: my memory card corrupted but I rescued the JPEG with disk drill. That’s the problem with only having one card slot! I am trialling Lightroom & finding it much more complicated than I thought it would be. I was using the phone version in error, which is easier
Great software, Disk Drill helped me to recover RAW photos from a corrupted SD card. Highly recommended!
Tired Of Accidentally deleting files on your USB Stick
Download Disk Drill and Restore your deleted Files
I Accidentally Deleted 57 Photos from my USB Stick and thanks to Disk Drill i managed to restore those 57 files to my desktop
Sorry bro. Use Disk Drill Pro. It’s amazing.
This AM cleaning person disconnected power from Time Machine Drive (MacOS 10.15.7) as it was backing up,corrupting disk
Disk Utility-couldn’t repair
Tech-Tool Pro13 -Couldn’t repair
#DIsk_Drill_Pro got temp directory up (read only) so data could be mounted and copied
I was able to recover 1.95 TB of my lost data with Disk Drill by
. Excellent work!
Disk Drill saved me and my files! Amazing what a Google search can do. Recovered approx 95% of my photos from my damaged memory card. Thank you! #photography >>
Np… the other month,… I literally Shift+Delete’d a directory… just as bad as deleting from recycling bin. I stopped using the HD right away and found Disk Drill which actually showed sooooo many files/dirs I deleted/moved in the past. I was able to recover my documents.
Disk Drill has completely recovered USB drives for me, several times. I have it and would be happy to try. Just don’t reformat the discs (or do anything to them really)
Recently, my most critical hard drive failed. 4TB of drone video work, seemingly gone. After many days of trying to clone the drive and then restore any data at all, Disk Drill seems to have helped me recover most of it. Money well spent.
^^ yes and in case of emergency please invest in Disk Drill to recover files.
So…The partition map on a 6TB drive suddenly went and I couldn’t mount it. Tried all the Terminal tricks for creating a mount location, etc. Nothing. I went shopping.
Disk Drill got all but one file back. 2600 movies plus who knows how many subtitles and associated junk.
Disk Drill has worked very well for me, when USB drives have failed. I haven’t used it for deleted files myself, but it’s one of the features of the software, and everything else has been great. Not too expensive.
check into Disk Drill!! has successfully restored hard drives for a friend of mine in the past.
THANK YOU DISK DRILL!! I have to say I was extremely skeptical and other software wanted my to pay so much money for very little. My problem was an “easy” issue. Had a SD Cart formatted in FAT that my MAC could not read, and I wanted to recover the material safely, had only audio material in there, not very heavy, about 200MB, took 30 minutes to scan, and recovered it for free, I am very very grateful and if I could do a donation to Disk Drill I would !!
Disk Drill, I permanently deleted 300gb of files off my macbook last year and this recovered it all in an hour
I had the same problem last week my 1TB harddrive crashed with almost 500gb of raws mov BTS that I hadnt processed but I recovered all of them with disk drill in 2days and its easy to use.
I rarely write a review about software but this application is different, this application saved my life many times before , as for studies I always work with ton of files and folders and many times I deleted important work and I cannot forget the day when I deleted my presentation by mistake and empty the trash to clean up my desktop and suddenly after all the hard work that I did and I have the presentation next day , I donot have my work that I did , I froze at this moment , I opened diskdrill and scan the data and recover it with couple of clicks , I seriously can’t be thankful for any software like this one
Disk Drill is the best.
Pay for disk drill and you will find peace bro 😉
Disk Drill – Best Free Mac Data Recovery Software in 2020! https://cleverfiles.com
download disk drill and every thing will be fine
hope it helps you
My Mac had 11.43 GB of duplicate files and I cleaned them with Disk Drill by 508 software. Excellent work! http://cleverfiles.com
Disk Drill worked for me. Try to recover them as soon as possible though, you stand a better chance trying ASAP, before they are overwritten over by new docs/data you save.
Oh wait, the open source one is testdisk. Disk Drill is the one that -somehow- made me able to access my files the normal way again.
Hey dude I had one go on me recently and before sending it off for expensive retrieval I downloaded a program called Disk Drill. It took almost 7 hours but low and behold full recovery and now the drive is working normal
Disk Drill is the best software I’ve used, unfortunately it’s not cheap, but it has recovered files for me that other software had completely missed.
This has not been a paid advertisement for Disk Drill, but thank god for it.
I just recovered most of the files from a drive that had been formatted with a program called Disk Drill. Definitely give that a shot
Wooooow. Disk Drill just saved my whole fucking life.
