Review

Disk Drill is a feature-rich Mac program created to help you analyze the current S.M.A.R.T. status of your drives, check disk space usage, recover lost data, and so much more. This capable application brings you a straightforward interface and easy to configure settings, so you can easily handle it on your Mac, no matter your computer experience level. Still, on the YouTube channel of the developer, you will find plenty of useful tutorials that teach you how to work with Disk Drill. You can access the videos by going to the "Help" menu of the program and clicking the "Video Tutorials" button.

The application will perform various tests to determine the current state of your drives and reveal a complete report based on the results. You can analyze local drives or almost any storage device you could think of, like a USB stick, an Apple tablet, an Android phone, etc. This utility will also help you recover lost data from your device or back up partitions from your Mac to a DMG file.

Another useful feature is the app's ability to immediately find and delete duplicated files from your Mac. This characteristic comes in handy if you want to easily reclaim disk space on your computer and get rid of unnecessary file copies.

I also like the fact that you can set a master password in the "Preferences" panel to prevent unauthorized users from accessing the backed up data and your current Disk Drill settings. more

I've used Disk Drill for Mac version 4 - great software! You need to update the current version.

Well, the program is "free" for scanning, but for recovery you have to pay at least $89.
