Data Rescue

Perhaps the most recognized name in mac data recovery, Data Recue is a fully featured software package that allows you to recover crashed, corrupted or non-mounting hard drives, damaged or deleted files, even those deleted by Command + Delete or the Trash Bin being emptied and even recover files from reformatted or erased drives. It works equally well on your main drive as it does additional or external drives and is an efficient and effective package.

#3. DiskWarrior


DiskWarrior is a slightly different product to others here, rather than simply looking for old files in the case of a disk failure it seeks to recreate the entire disk structure, using files it finds along the way. This, it claims, allows DiskWarrior to find more files than other recovery packages, and the awards it has won tend to back this up. For an accidentally deleted file this is not the software to turn to, but it is ideal for recovering data from drive.
