Editors' Review

MiniTool Mac Data Recovery is an app designed to allow you to recover data from disk drives that have had a crash or sustained damage, either physical or logical. Whether you've accidentally deleted files or partitions, or had the disk go flaky on you, tools like MiniTool Mac Data Recovery become critical to recover information. MiniTool Mac Data Recovery installs easily.

MiniTool Mac Data Recovery presents you with a number of capabilities. The primary goal of the software is to try to recover data from a drive that has been erased, tagged as reformatted, or undergone partition changes. If a drive has been corrupted, MiniTool Mac Data Recovery can often recover many files, although success depends on the damage to the filesystem. The MiniTool Mac Data Recovery interface is clean and simple. There are four big icons to initiate the recovery process, depending on the type of damage you have sustained. We tested MiniTool Mac Data Recovery on several drives that had been reformatted or had partition changes committed, and it was successful in getting most of the files recovered in those scenarios. We also tried MiniTool Mac Data Recovery with an external drive that had suffered a head crash that disabled some of the drive area, and the utility recovered a good number of files.

While guaranteeing total recovery in cases of disk issues is impossible, MiniTool Mac Data Recovery does its best. We were impressed with it in our testing and would recommend it for anyone having issues. It's a nicely done utility, and a lifesaver when you need it.

"Easy, Free and gets the job done."

October 27, 2013  |  By alcam95

 |  Version: MiniTool Mac Data Recovery 2.0

Pros

I got all my photos back that i had lost and it really didn't take much time at all. The process is easy to follow and i was amazed that it retrieved files i thought i had lost months ago.

Cons

The only con i really had was mainly because of my own ignorance of technical terms. When it asked to pick which external device, i was slightly confused as to which one to pick as it all just seemed like jargon. Eventually figured it out however, and obviously not everyone would have the same problem i did.

Summary

Always wary of downloading files off the internet, i found myself in a desperate situation after my photos miraculously deleted after plugging into my mac ( not the first time). Luckily this software worked and everything i needed was returned. Highly recommended.

"cool product"

July 01, 2013  |  By DaVidOrner

The trial version detects all I want to recover from my iPhone 4 and I will purchase it to perform the recovery. Thanks.

Cons

I upgraded to IOS 6 on my iPhone 4 and lost all images on my iPhone. Some of these were very important. Recovered all. Great product!!

Summary

I tried your software and great that it worked for me! I have a small shop and I rely so much on the text messages from clients. This is such a helpful tool! I'm very glad I've learned how to extract SMS from iPhone. It's really convenient! I like that there's a preview of the messages that I can check first. Thank you!

"Supports iPods, BUT BEWARE - not all iPods."

December 14, 2012  |  By madinagoodway

 |  Version: MiniTool Mac Data Recovery 2.0

Pros

This is probably a great product for recovering data from iPod, as long as you have the right kind of iPod.

Cons

Nowhere does it say it doesn't support iPod with iOS.

Summary

On developer's website it says "It support IDE, SATA, SCSI, USB hard disk, memory card, USB flash drive and iPod." Nowhere does it say it doesn't support iPod with iOS, not even in CNet's Publisher's Description. I am disappointed at the lack of this piece of essential data. Hoping to get my money back which the developer has agreed to.
