iDisksoft Data Recovery for Mac is an application that helps you retrieve lost files from your computer. No matter the reasons that caused the disappearance of data, this program offers an easy solution to recover the files you can't find on your Mac.
The utility comes with a simple and intuitive interface that provides four handy recovery modes. First, you are required to select the module that fits your recovery needs and choose the drive or the volume you wish to scan. Depending on the recovery mode you select, you may have other scanning filters to enable. For instance, the 'Deep recovery' mode lets you narrow the search of lost data to specific file types, such as video and audio files, photos, documents, and archives, with the possibility to select specific extensions for each file category. Once the scan is over, you are informed about the number of files that were identified and their total size. Then, you are expected to select the items you want to recover. The preview panel will help you decide which files are worth saving at the computer location you determine.
The application is designed to recover lost data from hard disks and external drives, such as iPod, USB drives, and other media storage devices. In addition, it has the ability to retrieve lost partitions and deleted volumes. The tool allows you to search for specific file types and extensions, but unfortunately it doesn't provide additional scan filters, like the name, the size, and the creation date of the files you want to recover.
