I would like to take a bet that there's not too many of you out there that have a clue about data recovery. Chances are, you probably wouldn't even think about it until that point that you lose a vital piece of data and decide to investigate ways of getting it back before you pull your hair out. Disk Drill is a data recovery application for Mac that helps you get back your lost information from any mountable media on your computer, scans many different Mac file systems and undeletes Mac OS files
Disk Drill Mac Data Recovery Software is a new app from developer Cleverfiles that recovers data from Mac's HFS and HFS+as well as Windows' FAT, NTFS & other file systems right on your Mac. This means that if your computer crashes or if you delete files by accident they can be found and brought back to life by using its two powerful Mac recovery methods. It does this by monitoring hard drive file activity and stores relevant information for recovery using the Recovery Vault feature. This is the quick method but, if you wish, you can restore the file from data stored on the drive via the Deep Scan tool. Live Smart monitoring will intuitively tell you if you have a file that could be failing and you can easily create a virtual clone of every single byte of that file and recreate it. Disk Drill data recovery for Mac OS X locates and recovers deleted files from any mountable media like your main drive, external hard disk, memory cards and iPod Classic etc. This includes the ability to recover deleted  photos, music, documents, applications, specific Mac OS X and many other file formats. Insert any memory card or USB drive into your Mac directly or using a card reader, scan it with Disk Drill and recover any deleted data on Macintosh.
The basic point of Disk Drill is to protect and restore all of the storage media on your computer and the free version offers Recovery Vault protection and recovery, monitoring, byte level disk imaging and you can scan a drive for a lost file but you will need the paid version for data recovery. Disk Drill is not cheap at around ninety bucks for the single Mac user but there really isn't a price you can put on losing a file, is there. You only have to save one file to have easily have the app pay for itself. Maybe it's time to preempt a disaster and take a long hard look at this very professional set of recovery tools. Then maybe the next time you foolishly press that 'empty trash' button on your computers it won't be the end of the world.
