Free Mac Video Recovery is an easy-to-use application that lets you recover lost files. The program is specialized in retrieving media files that were accidentally deleted, formatted, damaged, or virus infected. The tool supports recovering data from various storage devices, including internal and external hard drives, memory cards, portable devices, digital cameras, tablets, and camcorders.
Using the application is a hassle-free task. First, you need to select the categories of files you wish to recover. Then, you are required to determine the drive that will be the subject of the scan operation. While the scan is in progress, you have the chance to see in real time the number of recovered files and the estimated time until the process is completed. Once the search is over, the tool displays the results thoroughly organized into categories of files. Within each category, the recovered items are sorted conveniently by file extension, so you can browse only the types of files you are interested in. Unfortunately, advanced filters like file size, file extension, or creation and modification date cannot be enabled prior to starting the scan operation. However, it is good to know that you have the ability to preview the files before recovery. This can help you decide whether the retrieved files are worth recovering or not.
To conclude, Free Mac Video Recovery is designed for home users looking for a simple and intuitive application that can recover photos, music, and video files. Yet, you can recover up to 200 MB data for free. To overcome this limitation, you are required to buy the pro version.
