[cont'd] 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.
