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.

"CHANCE Find but GREAT Find!"

March 12, 2016  |  By melfis_law

2016-03-12 01:04:16  |  By melfis_law

 |  Version: Disk Drill 2.4.438

Pros

- Host of scanning and recovery options!
- User friendly interface and program; no tech skills necessary!
- 100% free to scan!
- Quick download!

Cons

- A little bit costly (but otherwise worth it)!
- Room for many more features!

Summary

I work from home as a freelancer and one day I managed to lose almost everything I kept in a certain drive. It was gone! I logged in one morning and I couldn't find ANY of my work! I panicked and immediately began scouring the internet for solutions to this problem or if anyone had suffered the same fate. I stumbled upon Disk Drill after a little bit of research and I am happy to say that it is AMAZING! Sure I was a little skeptical at first, but after downloading it there were absolutely no viruses or intrusions from malicious content AND I had relocated my missing drive by the end of the day. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

"Do Not Buy This Product! Just use the free version."

March 06, 2016  |  By ediepupers

2016-03-06 10:37:06  |  By ediepupers

 |  Version: Disk Drill 2.4.437

Pros

The product works for some people, didn't work for me.

Cons

The product didn't work for me in the free version so I upgraded and purchased it. It still didn't work and the company would not give me a refund. They have a strict no refund policy.

Summary

Just be careful and make sure you've exhausted every other recovery process possible before using this one.

"Easy download and use Results"

March 01, 2016  |  By jony abraham

2016-03-01 06:47:05  |  By jony abraham

 |  Version: Disk Drill 2.4.437

Pros

i love it because I don't have to be a computer expert to use it. Multiple scan types give you the options you need when you're trying to recover files.

Cons

I wish it was a bit cheaper

Summary

I took Disk Drill because I needed to repair a drive where files had disappeared. Used the disk rebuild option. I tried other recover apps, a few,but not was satisfied they didn't fulfill my needs as great as Disk Drill, it was able to completely recover the partition, in a matter of seconds. 5 stars. By the way, I was able to preview the recovery results in free version, so that was a sure upgrade to PRO.

"Disk drill can not recover filenames, folders"

February 23, 2016  |  By Sait Egrilmez

2016-02-23 09:51:19  |  By Sait Egrilmez

 |  Version: Disk Drill 2.4.437

Pros

I think none

Cons

I can recover my files with names, and folders with one of windows based recovery software. Disk drill is my frustration. I payed disk drill pro, but I re-recovered my files with other software to gain time with original file names and folder locations

Summary

Recovering nonspecific new names and folder addresses is not real recovery. Disk Drill provide only poor recovery option without original names and folder addresses

"This tool is a good help for data recovery"

January 21, 2016  |  By djborisov1

2016-01-21 05:04:12  |  By djborisov1

 |  Version: Disk Drill 2.4.437

Pros

This tool is actually the fastest data recovery software that I tried! Easy to use and can recover lost data in just few minutes!

Cons

The Pro version costs money. The Free version can be useful, but you need to install it prior to data loss.

Summary

I had a corrupted USB with 5.97 GB of data on it. I tried several other software recovery programs with no success. Then I downloaded Disk Drill, was pleased with nice interface, and even more surprised when I ran the scan. The scan was fast, and comprehensive, finding all the data on the corrupted USB, with one more easy step, the data was recovered to a folder on my hard drive.

"Disk Drill can be a life saver if something goes wrong"

January 21, 2016  |  By starryeyeing

2016-01-21 04:52:43  |  By starryeyeing

 |  Version: Disk Drill 2.4.437

Pros

I've deleted a user, and the files associated with that user (230GB) of wedding photos then became unaccessible (hidden). Disk Drill allowed me to mount the folder and move the contents to an accessible space.

Cons

The file names are not recoverable with Deep Scan

Summary

I don't need Disk Drill very often, but when I do.. it is a game changer and life saver..
