VirtualLab Data Recovery for Mac

CNET Editors' review

With its comprehensive features, good design, and easy-to-use menu, VirtualLab Data Recovery for Mac offers a great tool for those who need to restore files and drives. With its additional ability to recover iPods and partition drives, the program incorporates nearly everything a user would need for recovery.

Upon startup, VirtualLab Data Recovery for Mac guides the user on how to start their first recovery by pointing them to the recovery modules on the left. The program also gives the link to its user guide for those who might need it, but most won't with the program's well-designed main menu and clearly-labeled buttons. On the left side, the user is able to select the type of device or drive to restore. This includes full disks and drives, partitions, deleted files, RAID, photos, and even iPods, which is a feature not found on similar programs. In the lower-right corner, the user can enter an activation key, or purchase one at the click of a button. The program can be tried out for free with a 1MB recovered file size limit, while purchasing the full version removes this limitation. Clicking one of the left-side options brings up choices in the main menu, which are similarly easy to identify. Users first need to choose a description of the nature of the disk or drive problem. Then, they need to select the particular drive on which to take action. All of the available drives on the testing computer identified correctly. All scans completed quickly, as one would expect from this type of program.

As a disk scan and restore utility, VirtualLab Data Recovery for Mac works well and is a pleasure to look at and use, making it a good choice for many users.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of VirtualLab Data Recovery for Mac 4.0.27. The trial version can recover up to 1MB only.

    "Recommended"

    April 16, 2014  |   By croleyjanelle

    Version: VirtualLab Data Recovery 4.0.27

    Pros

    I've been around computers all my life and always want the best out of everything I have. When it comes to data recovery softwares, the best I found so far has to be VirtualLab Data Recovery, it's fast, does the job it needs to do and it's a little too easy to use. I recommend this software to anyone who wants to get back all the deleted files or files lost after formatting

    Cons

    good results

    Summary

    It also works well on my macbook air.

    "VIrtuallab is everything you need"

    April 11, 2014  |   By pace98

    Version: VirtualLab Data Recovery 4.0.27

    Pros

    If you need a file recovery for your tool kit & for regular/emergency usage VirtualLab Data Recovery is the best you can get. For a usb drive, a backup drive, the pc's drive, wherever, this is what I use now. I tried different free apps for this but nothing can compare with how VirtualLab gets the data back.

    Cons

    its just the best i found

    "Recovered!"

    April 7, 2014  |   By blackwood11

    Version: VirtualLab Data Recovery 4.0.27

    Pros

    I bought my friends Mac a couple of days ago and cleaned it all up. Two days after that, he came back to get some of his files he forgot to save. He was upset when I gave him the news, but fortunately I could get all his files back with VirtualLab Data Recovery and put a smile on his face

    Cons

    Its free to try

    "Easy to use even for me"

    April 4, 2014  |   By danathompson61

    Version: VirtualLab Data Recovery 4.0.27

    Pros

    When I deleted my files from my PC I thought they would be lost forever. A friend of mine told me to try VirtualLab Data Recovery in order to get all my files back but I'm not what you call a computer wiz and did not know if I could do it. Surprisingly, this program is very easy to use and it did not take me long to get my data back. I'm glad that I got this program and it's so easy to use

    Cons

    I would recommend it to literally anyone who has a computer

    March 30, 2014  |   By bradley5443

    Version: VirtualLab Data Recovery 4.0.27

    Pros

    Wow!!! I have tried to wipe my hard drive with several software using multiple algorithms only to find that your VirtualLab Data Recovery could recover it. I guess I am not sure if this is a curse or a blessing ;) but I think you should develop a deletion program that even YOU cannot recover. You guys did a great job!!

    Cons

    Great job.

    March 25, 2014  |   By kyle-gibbs

    Version: VirtualLab Data Recovery 4.0.27

    Pros

    I've restored my daughter's music and I think every song is there. I'm really impressed with VirtualLab Data Recovery and will probably purchase it for all my Mac problems. Thank you also for responding last night, I was really upset because she didn't know I had accidentally lost her songs in Itunes. When I connected her Ipod think I could put them back in, they vanished from there too

    Cons

    Very good for mac

    "I got my files back"

    March 21, 2014  |   By whishill

    Version: VirtualLab Data Recovery 4.0.27

    Pros

    EAsy program even for beginers

    Cons

    I didnt find it until now

    Summary

    When I saw my files being deleted by my little brother I thought they will be lost for good. Even though I pressed cancel, a big part of my files were already lost. Thank God I found VirtualLab Data Recovery and used it to get all my data back. I really like this program and will keep it in my PC at least until my kid brother will learn not to delete random folders

    "Try It...."

    March 19, 2014  |   By suttonsucca

    Version: VirtualLab Data Recovery 4.0.27

    Pros

    You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by having it. Most of us are human, we make mistakes and this can take care of those mistakes, or another app could inadvertently delete a file, whatever. Every one of us should have a file recovery method in place. VirtualLab Data Recovery is for now a no brainer

    Cons

    I recommend
