    "Best Mac file recovery program!!!"

    June 17, 2014  |  

    Version: R-Studio Data Recovery 4.0 build 2399

    Pros

    You can fully test the program before purchase. Lots of tutorials on their site.

    Cons

    None. Really!

    Summary

    I tried several Mac other recovery programs to save my NY photos from a broken memory card. All in vain. The problem was that the card stopped responding within app. 5 min, making even the imaging impossible. But I made up a smart trick with R-Studio for Mac: I imaged the card through several regions on it, then I combined them into a compound volume, scan it, and get all the files back. None of all other programs could do that.

    "Successful data recovery from internal MacPro RAID5"

    January 11, 2014  |   By iranewport256

    Version: R-Studio Data Recovery 4.0 build 2399

    Pros

    Supports built-in Mac Pro RAID5 of 4 disks.

    Cons

    Not easy to find necessary information in its docs.

    Summary

    As it appears, R-Studio for Mac supports internal MacPro RAID5 consisting of 4 disks. The necessary information was hidden inside its help. It became possible to recover files from such corrupted RAID.

    Pros

    Recovered file names and complete folder structure from a disk with a corrupted file system.

    A little bit confusing user interface.

    Summary

    Mistakenly an external Mac disk was connected to a Windows machine and initialized. After this all files and folders disappeared. The disk was scanned and all files were successfully recovered. Moreover, the program was able to recover the original folder structure, too.

    "I couldn't recover my deleted docs"

    August 24, 2012  |   By khrisallen

    Version: R-Studio Data Recovery 3.0 build 1452

    Pros

    nothing good

    Cons

    If you switch computers, you are out of luck so beware. I had heard this tool great reviews but after digging, it's not so great; I would recommend you try a different product and try a demo before purchasing like I did. Now I can't afford another app.

    "File recovery program for all cases."

    August 23, 2012  |   By RogerWill256

    Version: R-Studio Data Recovery 3.0 build 1452

    Pros

    I was able to recover files from our home Linux NAS and my wife's external hard drive from a Windows computer.

    Cons

    Its interface. You have to learn a little bit before starting file recovery.

    Summary

    A sudden power outage crashed our two family data storages: our NAS device and an external drive connected to my wife's Windows laptop. The first luck, it appears that the hardware is not damaged, only their file systems.
    For the hard drive the case was easy: I scanned it and the program found the crashed NTFS partition. Luckily, all wanted files were not damaged, so I just copied them to my MacBook Pro.
    But it was much trickier with the NAS device with its RAID5 and Ext3fs. I had to take the disks out of the case, connect them to my MacBook Pro using a USB3 adapter and create their images. Then I created a kind of RAID5 in R-Studio, scanned it, which took a lot of time, and found all our files.

    "Recovered all my lost videos."

    July 31, 2012  |   By gansschlag

    Version: R-Studio Data Recovery 3.0 build 1452

    Pros

    It really recovers files and they have tons of tutorials on their site.

    Cons

    I can't found one.

    Summary

    A memory card with my family vacation videos was accidentally formatted. I found their site with a tutorial on how to recover lost videos from a camera's flash card. It was for their Windows file recovery product, R-Undelete, but the same technique can be used for R-Studio for Mac, too. I followed their instructions and was able to save all recovered videos to my computer.
    It didn't recover file names, though, but as I understand that's because the scan for known file types was used, and that was the only file recovery method that could be used for my case.
