Data Rescue 4 For Mac
Do-it-Yourself Hard Drive Recovery Software

Mac
Data Rescue 4 is shipped on a 16GB USB drive
The Best Mac Data Recovery
Data Rescue is completely safe to use. It does not write to the hard drive or attempt any risky repairs. Data Rescue is the safest, most powerful data recovery software for Mac. It is the very same software used by many data recovery services, law enforcement, all major branches of the U.S. Military and major intelligence agencies.
Quick Scan
Utilizes existing directory info even if your Mac hard drive does not mount. This type of scan usually takes just a few minutes but can take longer in more severe cases. Quick Scan should be tried first in most cases.
Deep Scan
Utilizes the most advanced techniques to find every recoverable file on your Mac hard drive. This type of scan typically takes three minutes per gigabyte but can take longer in more severe data loss cases.
Deleted Files Scan
Will search your Mac hard drive for recently deleted files. Use this scan when your Mac hard drive is working properly but you accidentally deleted one or more Mac files.
Clone
Makes an exact copy of your Mac hard drive. The clone can then be scanned which helps improve recoverability. This function is used in the most severe cases where hardware problems may be present.
FileIQ
Is a powerful feature which enables Data Rescue® 4 to learn new Mac file types. Simply drag sample files to the Data Rescue® 4 drop-in bin and Data Rescue® 4 will learn these new Mac file types.

Rating: 3/5 Data Rescue 4 Drive November 11, 2016 The first one didn't work properly. I had call ProSoft to get a replacement. Not a good practice when someone is having a hard time recovering data from a crashed hard disk. Eventually, I did get all my video transferred to a new drive, but i was nervous about the delay. Not OWC's problem. Their service is excellent and have never had a problem with their excellent support.

Rating: 4/5 Worked for this Luddite August 22, 2016 You can unring the bell! I thought I had lost 40 gb of raw images - three weeks on the road, some pictures I thought might be important. Gone and I don't know how. (Getting some idea about my geek quotient here?) After the scan I began to open files but only got cryptic symbols that had no resmblence to what I was hoping for. So I began the process of acceptance - which is what I would have had to do if I hadn't peeked at the files folder before I trashed it. And they were the NEF files I'd lost. Got them back just as I'd lost them, without a clue. So, if Data Rescue worked for me, it can work for anybody.

Rating: 5/5 Simple, powerful, effective recovery tool March 27, 2016 Data Rescue 4 got me out of a jamb. A failed 1TB drive with critical docs on it that I had tried resurrecting for over two months. I had a noisy mechanical failure on a low usage drive (it does happen more than you think it would). It wouldn't even mount, and was invisible to everything else.

Data Rescue 4 could see it, mount it and recover almost everything on it. Docs resurrected, as well as audio and video files. It did take over two days to block-segment scan and clone the drive to another drive ... just let it run. Then I did my successful file recovery on the clone. Be sure to read all of the manual before you begin; it's short, and will get you started quickly.

Here's another tip: Also get a dock from OWC that positions your dying drive in a VERTICAL POSITION. Reading a mechanically failing drive in that orientation is far more likely to work. Pulling data off in that fashion gives you your best chance at maximum data recovery. Good Luck!

Rating: 5/5 I hope I never have to use it April 17, 2015 It may sound negative at first, but the idea of having to perform an "Emergency Hard Drive or File Recovery" is not appealing to me, at all. Having such a quality product & software available, offers just enough peace of mind, that I can say I'm ready, if something drastic should happen.

Rating: 5/5 Extraordinary recovery! January 15, 2015 100% recovery from a "dead" laptop HD that absolutely refused to mount! Couldn't be happier with a product, but over the years I've always been pleased by Prosoft Engineering's products! This is another well-executed piece of software!
