Disk Drill, Mac Data Recovery Software, recovers data from HFS/HFS+, FAT, NTFS & other file systems right on your Mac. It helps you undelete Mac OS files using its two powerful Mac recovery methods: Quick or Deep scanning. Disk Drill data recovery for Mac OS X locates and recovers deleted files from any mountable media like your main drive, external hard disk, memory cards, iPods Classic, etc. Disk Drill can recover photos, music, documents, applications, specific Mac OS X and other file formats.
To support data recovery on all existing file systems and undelete all imaginable file types Disk Drill features 3 scanning and recovery methods:
Undelete from Recovery Vault
Recover any file or folder exactly as it was before deletion on disks and partitions protected with Recovery Vault. All file types supported, all original properties are recovered, this method is extremely precise
Scans existing journal or file table for deleted items. Requires a working disk or partition. Is very fast, but not precise as not all deleted files still exist in the areas of search
Regardless of what happened to your disk and which file system was there before, Deep Scan attempts to extract every bit of data still remaining in any binary mess: formatted drive, lost partition, etc. It's slow and based on file signatures it already knows. The list of known file types is constantly updated. Deep Scan is your last call for help if nothing else works or if data loss is really severe. While it's not capable of recovering original file names and locations, as well as other meta-data of recovered items, Deep Scan does an impressive job of getting files that were deleted/lost many days ago.
Disk Drill is capable of data recovery on Mac OS from any mountable media: internal and external hard disks, USB flash drives and memory cards, digital cameras and camcorders, iPods Classic, other mass storage devices and disk images, etc. All file systems are supported: you can run Mac data recovery on HFS and HFS+ (journaled/extended), FAT16 and FAT32, NTFS, EXT3, EXT4 and actually any other file system, or even on disks that were formatted or initialized.
Search for lost partitions
...attach them as existing ones in Disk Drill and extract your data from them
Is your disk reported as needing to be formatted though it was easily accessible and working correctly just one reboot ago? Have you erroneously initialized your drive? Failed re-partitioning? Even free edition of Disk Drill lets you search your media for lost partitions. This operation is relatively fast and produces the so-called virtual partitions if any are found. Virtual partitions are automatically attached to disk you were searching on; then you can quick-scan them to get ALL your data back exactly as it was before, all properties, filenames, folder structures will be saved, if possible. Alternatively you can backup found partitions into DMG and continue with data recovery by scanning disk images.
Protect data now, prevent accidental loss
It's always cheaper to prevent data loss than recovery your lost data after disaster, especially taking into consideration the fact that there's always no guarantee that data can be recovered 100%. All data protection features are available in Disk Drill Basic absolutely for free.
Invisibly protects your FAT or HFS disks from accidental data loss
Totally FREE premium-class data protection solution is here thanks to CleverFiles! Recovery Vault protects your data invisibly monitoring all deleted files, their location, size and all properties. Once you need them back, launch Disk Drill, choose your protected drive and click "Undelete from Recovery Vault", all your files are recovered as if they were never deleted. Unlike many Trash Backup solutions Recovery Vault doesn't keep hard copies of deleted files saving your precious hard disk space, still being able to recover any file.
S.M.A.R.T. status monitoring
Disk Drill monitors your ATA, SATA and eSATA disks for hardware failures by polling S.M.A.R.T. status of your hard drive. Disk Drill will notify you with a visual alert or GROWL message in case something is going to happen to your disk.
Visualize your hard drive's temperature with a tiny icon in the menu bar, and display other important data about your disks on click there.
Backup disks and partitions into Disk Image (DMG)
Save precious data simply backuping any failing disk or partition into Disk Image (DMG) for further data recovery, so you no longer need the original media.
Mac-style user interface & advanced features
Disk Drill takes user experience very seriously. We designed our Mac data recovery software to be simple and intuitive to every user: no matter if you are a data recovery guru or a new Mac user.

While Disk Drill is a great data recovery software for novice users, there's a number of features Mac professionals will find extremely useful:
Advanced scanning sessions management
Save and Load scanning sessions to switch between multiple media during data recovery. This is also invaluable for Deep Scan, which may take hours - scanning progress is saved hourly. You can be sure the progress is safe and not lost. Pause, save a session and get back to your scanning process later, when you have more spare time.
Various flexible filtering, searching and sorting options help you locate exactly the items you need recovered among hundreds or thousands of files usually available after deep-scanning. Convenient preview lets you check the contents of the files you are about to recover: images, video, music, documents, etc. By using Mac OS QuickLook approach, Disk Drill's preview feature is capable of showing even formats specific to a certain Mac.
