MiniTool Data Recovery for Mac helps you recover files from your hard drive or an external drive. With just a few clicks, you can run a scan and find the files you're looking for.


Four options: This program can work to recover files in four different ways. These include Undelete Recovery, Damaged Partition Recovery, Lost Partition Recovery, and Digital Media Recovery, which is the option best suited for an external drive. All scans run quickly and display results, so you don't have to wait around to get your files back.

Lots of help: Tips show up periodically as you're working in the program to help you find the right tool. There is also a Technical Support page that includes links to a Manual, FAQs Page, and an email address for 24/7 technical support.


Intimidating interface: Once you get past the initial screen by making a selection about the type of recovery you want to attempt, the app's interface can get a little overwhelming, especially for beginners. However, if you're willing to invest a little time in reading the manual and the other Help resources, you can figure out what the next steps are regardless of your level of computer knowledge.

Bottom Line

MiniTool Data Recovery for Mac is a useful and versatile program that can help you recover many files you otherwise wouldn't be able to access. Although it can get a bit technical as you work through the steps of data recovery, the various resources provided can give you all the information you need to complete a successful retrieval of your files. The program is free to try with a limit of 1MB of restored data, and it costs $79 to buy.
