Cisdem Data Recovery is a simple and efficient recovery tool that offers to restore data you lost accidentally. The application helps you recover files from both internal and external storage media. The array of supported files is extensive, ranging from popular document, media, and archive files to less common formats.

Unlike similar programs, the utility doesn't install on your Mac's hard drive. It downloads from the Internet every time you launch it and becomes functional after entering your system's password. This way, the risk of overwriting existing data is highly reduced. Once these procedures are done, it displays a simple and intuitive interface, divided into four recovery modes. Each category is suggestively named and comes with a brief description of the files it can retrieve. After selecting a specific module, you can select the drive you wish to scan and enable the recovery process. You have the ability to narrow the search by selecting file extensions that should be omitted during scanning. The program performs a thorough search that lasts quite long, but the results are satisfactory. The recovered files are displayed conveniently organized by file extension, allowing you to browse and preview each recovered item. You will appreciate the ability to restore files selectively, so that you won't waste valuable storage space by saving unwanted files.

Cisdem Data Recovery may not be the fastest file recovery tool, but the accuracy of the results exceeds the average recovery rate of other similar programs. The lack of advanced searching filters like file name, date, size, etc., should not be considered a drawback, since such criteria may lead to inappropriate results whenever the users select the wrong parameters.
