Review

This application is designed to recover lost files from external drives. However, the program's name may mislead you, since the tool not only supports selecting external drives, but also your Mac's hard drive. It has the ability to scan for images, audio, and video files, documents and archives, and other types of files.

The utility opens with a clean interface that allows you to select the types of files you wish to search for. Unfortunately, the app doesn't provide advanced scan filters to narrow the search based on the file size or the date of creation. Yet, the tool informs you in real time about the number of recovered items. You have the ability to stop the scan process at any moment, though note that you can't resume it at a later time. Once the scanning is over, it displays the results conveniently organized by file category and grouped by extension. You have the chance to preview selected files, so you can decide more easily on the items worth recovering.

In short, Free External Hard Drive Recovery offers a simple solution to recover all kinds of deleted, formatted, corrupted, or lost files up to 200 MB. The scan operation can be performed both on internal and external drives.
