Editors' Review

+

Disk Drill for Mac is a powerful tool that lets you scan your computer or other connected device for lost files and, with the paid version, recover them. While not all files are recoverable, Disk Drill uses a variety of techniques to find or reconstruct files that were lost or accidentally deleted, and is successful in many cases.

Pros

Connect and scan: This program works on files that were stored on your computer, but it can also recover items stored on any other device that you can connect to your Mac. This makes the app a lot more useful, and streamlines your file recovery process quite a bit, since it means you can use one program for just about all of your recovery needs.

Multilevel scans: Disk Drill has two types of scans available, depending on how a file was lost and how long it's been since it was deleted. For recently deleted files, the Quick Scan is most effective and can bring back files with their original filenames intact in most cases. The Deep Scan gives you options when more time has elapsed since a file was lost, but it takes longer and can't always reconstruct the original filename.

Previews: Once a scan is completed, the Preview feature lets you see which items that showed up in the scan are actually recoverable in a useable form. That way, you can quickly determine what in the search results is worth retrieving.

Cons

Pay for recovery: Unfortunately, the free version of this app can only scan for lost files. If you want to recover them, you'll have to purchase a license for $89.

Bottom Line

Disk Drill for Mac features an intuitive interface, quick scanning technology, and a clear Tutorial to provide an overall excellent user experience. You can try out the scanner for free and view previews of the files found to determine whether or not you'd like to invest in a license for the full program.

"Easy to follow intuitive layout and thorough scan!"

December 04, 2016  |  By wplifestyle

2016-12-04 12:17:53  |  By wplifestyle

 |  Version: Disk Drill 3.0.756

Pros

1. Great recovery scanning tool! Found 64GB of recoverable data from an empty 32GB SD card.
2. Easy to follow layout
3. Light weight and responsive
4. Preview option for recoverable files give a good idea of file contents
5. Also a great tool for monitoring memory space in hard drive

Cons

Only one I can think of is when the preview for recoverable video takes a while to load (e.g., 1.5GB video files).

Summary

Overall, I think this software is a fantastic tool for anyone working with sensitive data. Having my computer stolen a year ago, I failed to backup the video files I transferred from my SD card. I was able to use Disk Drill to scan recoverable video files that date back to last year. This software's a life saver!

The most easy to use hard disk recover software that can help us accidentally deleted, partition damage, hard disk is formatted, disk or memory card damage ... and other conditions to get relief, for important files to spend such money is worth it.

Cons

None so far!

"User friendly and easy to recover"

 |  Version: Disk Drill 3.0.756

Pros

The deleted and lost data were found very quick.
I don't know well about computer or hard drive things, but I was able to use and recover deleted data easily

Cons

Have to purchase pro version for recovery

Summary

it is still very affordable since we should pay more if we want to recover the deleted data by technician. Also, it is very user friendly, so will be able to use anytime by myself.

"Data recovery the easy way"

November 24, 2016  |  By smurfishappy

2016-11-24 03:10:40  |  By smurfishappy

 |  Version: Disk Drill 3.0.756

Pros

I've tested some different trial versions of different recovery programs and Disk Drill was the only one that was able to find all "lost" images on the USB drive instantly. All other programs only showed around 20% of the lost images.
So for my current problem Disk Drill has become the by far best recovery tool.

Cons

Like with all products of this type, the demand for such a product is always because you've lost data. And as you are in some sort of critical situation the price for such a product seems pretty expensive.

Pros

Safety & user friendliness are the most lucrative features of this product.

Cons

There can be serious implications if the data so important is lost.

Summary

The product looks a good buy but you and me like every individual know that there is always a south to a north but this does not mean we as consumers should any way stay away from amenities this whole world technology offers to us. Proper usage with care will definitely benefit the buyers.
