Standard Data Recovery for Mac

Manage your Data Recovery

Need to make an Advanced Scan but don't have the time for it to finish? Mac Data Recovery has you covered. You can save the scan and turn the already scanned data into an image file. This image file can be reopened through Mac file recovery software whenever you wish to continue the process. You can also free preview what files the scan has recuperated to find out whether the data you needed can be recovered, both during and after the scan.

Recover Lost or Deleted Partitions

Severely damaged or corrupt hard drives or volumes become inaccessible, making it difficult to access data. Stellar Phoenix Mac Data recovery has feature 'Can't Find Volume' option and recover lost data from such a drive or volume. This option also helps to retrieve data from an accidentally deleted BootCamp Partition.

Recover Lost or Deleted Partitions

Scan and Deep Scan Options

Data can be lost in many ways – it may become inaccessible by partition deletion, or simply get accidentally erased. Depending on how your data was lost, you can choose to save time on overly thorough scanning. In case drive is heavily corrupt and you are not able to find your data, run Deep Scan. Deep scan takes more time but scan the drive sector by sector and recovers all the data required by you.

Key Features:

Recover from Different File Systems icon

Recover from Different File Systems

Many of us have to manage data between different computers and operating systems, so it is important to have software that can work with different file systems and drive formats. Although the Mac Data Recovery software works only on Mac computers, it can access and recover data from various storage device formats. Whether your storage device uses one of HFS, HFS+, FAT, ex-FAT, or NTFS file systems, data recovery for Mac will be able to scan and recover data from these devices.

Recover from Encrypted Hard Drives icon

Recover from Encrypted Hard Drives

Since we store a lot of information about our lives on our computers, it is important to have that data protected. However, this can cause some issues with different software because of more difficult access to the password-protected storage device. You will have no such worries with Mac Data Recovery tool! Just enter the drive’s password as you would normally and gain access to recovery options for that drive. Keep in mind that losing an encrypted drive’s password will render it completely inaccessible and useless, even for Mac file recovery software.

Customized Scanning icon

Customized Scanning

By default, Mac Data Recovery will look for any kind of deleted or lost files (Recover Everything). But, if you know exactly what type of files you need to recover, you can pick between Documents, Emails, Video, Audio files, and Photos to make the Mac data recovery process faster and easier. The Software will scan the specified drive looking for that type of files based upon your selection. Once the software list the files which you were looking for, you can preview files before saving them.

Recovers Completely Trashed Files icon

Recovers Completely Trashed Files

Permanently deleting files can free up space on a hard drive but makes that deleted data impossible to restore by native Mac OS tools. Mac Data Recovery can help you retrieve files even if they have been deleted from Trash and restore them fully to a location of your choice. Emptying the Trash folder will never again result in losing that one important document you did not think you would ever need again.

Time Machine Backup Recovery icon

Time Machine Backup Recovery

The most reliable measure against data loss is data backup and Time Machine is the default and most popular backup application for Mac computers. But, same as with any kind of files on any storage device, your most precious Time Machine backup drive can get deleted or corrupted at any given time. Fortunately, data recovery for Mac has you covered because it supports Time Machine-designated drives and restores data from them as it would from any other drive. This allows Mac data recovery to add an extra layer of data protection on top of the existing backup protection as well as the main file storage system.

User-Friendly Interface icon

User-Friendly Interface

If you are new to data formats, file systems, and data recovery as a whole, many of the benefits of Mac Data Recovery may seem confusing and complicated. But do not worry, as the Mac Data Recovery software’s graphical user interface (GUI) is simple and easy to navigate. Most of the aforementioned benefits are only a part of the basic scanning and recovery processes and don’t need to be selected separately. All you have to do is choose what types of files to look for, which drive to scan, and pick between Scan and Deep Scan options, depending on how much you want to save time. You can also customize how the scan results are displayed via the intuitive Mac Data Recovery interface.

Create Hard Drive Images icon

Create Hard Drive Images

Although data recovery on Mac can be a good method of retrieving lost files and safeguarding your system, you can also prevent data loss before it happens. Stellar Data Recovery Mac tool lets you do exactly that via Create Image. The Create Image option takes all the data on your hard drive and compresses it into a .DMG image file. This image file can be opened afterwards in Mac data recovery program to restore files and folders compressed within the hard drive image. This reduces the risk of data loss pretty much completely.

Yes, Stellar Phoenix Mac Data Recovery Professional is perfectly compatible with 64 Bit version, and it works flawlessly on macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 and below macOS or OSX versions.

Yes, you can. All of the most frequently used file formats can be recovered with ease. If you know a file extension that is not being restored by the software, you can easily add it to the existing list under Preferences/Add Header. You can also filter out a certain file type or format to speed up your recovery process.

The Demo version of data recovery for Mac supports scanning and file preview of files smaller than 10 MB, allowing you to see whether your lost files can be recovered at all. To fully recover lost data, you will need the full version of Mac Data Recovery.

Recovery images (.dmg) are specialized, compressed files, containing base information about the data that you can use to fully restore the files listed in it. Stellar Phoenix Mac Data Recovery scan images cannot be mounted alone or within other programs – they are meant to be used only with Stellar Phoenix Mac Data Recovery. Similar images from other recovery programs cannot be used with Mac Data Recovery either.

This depends mainly on the size of the drive you are scanning, as well as whether the Deep Scan option is chosen. Deep Scan checks every single block it can locate on the drive to fully rebuild lost information, making it more time-consuming. Applying filters for both data types (Photo, Video, Audio) and file formats (such as JPEG, BMP, etc.) can shorten data recovery a lot, if you know that you need only certain types of data.

Yes, they will appear in the drive list, alongside all of your internal storage devices. Stellar Phoenix Data Recovery for Mac supports HFS, HFS+, FAT, FAT16, FAT32, ex-FAT, and NTFS formats. You can choose the new directory for recovered files as well.

Yes. You will, however, need a rescue disc containing a functioning macOS to boot the system and have Mac Data Recovery either on this separate media or on healthy partitions of your computer. After successfully booting, open Mac Data Recovery and create a recoverable image of the original, broken boot volume.

Seeing how bad sectors usually result from physical damage, the best solution would be to create a recovery image of the potentially damaged drive as soon as possible to avoid further damage. After that, the image can be used to recover all the files that have not been damaged yet.

As for the bad sectors themselves, no recovery or repair software can fix them. It would take a specialized service, like Stellar Laboratory Services (only in select European countries), to potentially repair the drive fully and remove the bad sectors.

Yes, but only if you have the password. Encrypted hard drives can be affected by viruses, corruption, or physical damage same as any other drive and such issues can be fixed with Mac Data Recovery. After entering the password, the encrypted drive will be seen as a normal drive, giving you the same scanning and Mac recovery options.

However, if you have lost the drive’s password, regular software, including Mac Data Recovery, will not be able to help and only sophisticated specialists might be able to break into your drive and retrieve your data because of how complex modern encryption methods are.

Yes. Mac Data Recovery explores all bits located on a drive, attempting to find recognizable file formats and rebuilding them. Deleting files from Trash doesn’t overwrite them, but rather opens up their location fully for new data to be written on, giving the old data a chance to be restored. Just avoid writing tons of new data on the drive you want to recover files from, because writing over older data will make it permanently lost.
