Editors' Review

Card Data Recovery for Mac enables you to recover lost files from all types of Mac-OS-X-based devices, iPhones, external drives, and more. Just connect your device or select a hard drive scan to find accidentally deleted or otherwise compromised items you thought you'd lost for good.


Quick scans: Whether you're scanning an external device or your own hard drive, this app works quickly. Just choose the item you want to scan to get started, and then let the program do the rest.

Convenient groupings: When presenting scan results, recoverable files are organized into categories in the interface's left-land column. To see what any particular found file actually contains, just select it from one of the groups on the left, and a preview will show up in a box on the right-hand side of the interface.


No intro: When you first open the app, your only options are to select Quick or Raw recovery, with brief descriptions of each below the title. While this is the main function of the app, the Help documents and other resources aren't available until later. You just have to jump in and start a scan before you ever get to those options.

Bottom Line

This program offers nice versatility in terms of the types of devices it can scan and the way it presents the results. The interface is good, but the lack of any type of introduction could be confusing for novice users. The full version of Card Data Recovery for Mac costs $39.95, but you can try out the scanning options for free. The trial version offers no test recovery options.
