    "Where other tools failed, this one worked!"

    May 23, 2014  |   By borogoves

    Version: MiniTool Data Recovery 2.3

    Pros

    Found all the important files I was looking for in my damaged hard drive. It shows preserved directory structure when it can find it.

    It took a full day to scan the disk prior to being able to restore files--that's pretty standard apparently. But once scanned, the lookup of filenames and restoring individual files was really zippy.

    Cons

    Not terribly intuitive to use; but hopefully you're not doing this every day. Doesn't have prebuilt filename filters for a lot of file types common to Mac (for example, you can't filter on '.key' to look for Keynote files).

    You *think* you're going to be able to recreate your hard drive from the files themselves, but it's so much harder when the directory structure isn't intact. So many directories on the Mac have parallel structures, or have structures that you never see except when you're trying to recover something like your email or your photo library.

    Summary

    Perfectly manageable disk recovery at a good price.
