Enhanced Video & Audio Recovery

In addition to restoring missing pictures, the Mac photo recovery software also lets you retrieve lost / deleted music collections, inaccessible video files, and Podcasts from a variety of digital media including digital cameras, iPods, USB storage devices, SD Cards, Flash Cards, Mini Disks, Zip Disks, and Mac based hard drives. The latest version of the application supports audio formats such as ACD, AIFF, AMR, AT3, AU, CAFF, DSS, IFF, M4A, M4P, MIDI, MP3, etc. and video formats such as ASF, MP4, MOV, AVI, AJP, F4V, SVI, TOD, VID, HDMOV, M4V, MPEG, etc.

Encrypted Multimedia Recovery

Most Mac users encrypt their hard drives to protect their data. The encryption on the drives often presents a challenge for conventional photo recovery Mac software. However, the Stellar Phoenix Mac Photo Recovery bypasses the encryption on hard drives to recover data just as efficiently as unencrypted drives.

Encrypted Drive Recovery

Create Image

The application provides the users option to create a complete image of the hard drive or a selected volume and save it as an image file at desired location. This image file can be used as a backup to restore data at a later stage.

Key Features:

Enhanced User Interface icon

Enhanced User Interface

The Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery (Mac) v8.0 is equipped with major UI improvements to maximize user experience. In addition to interface enhancements, various file view options (details view, list view, thumb view, cover flow view), facility to check / un-check files for recovery using space bar, ability to zoom-in / zoom-out photos by slider for thumb view, preview of pictures, audio and video etc. have been added.

Save Scan Information & Resume Recovery icon

Save Scan Information & Resume Recovery

This advanced tool lets you stop a running scan and save the scan progress up to that point in the form of a disk image (.dmg) file. This file can be later loaded into the software to resume recovery from the saved point. Additionally, the Resume Recovery features for Disk Image, Volume Image and saved scan information have been optimized and user is given an option to display their respective windows in a single page.

RAW Recovery icon

RAW Recovery

For most devices, the application’s advanced scanning engines quickly finds recoverable items. However, some desired files might not turn up after a normal scan in some cases. In such scenarios, the RAW recovery feature of the software comes in handy to search for deleted data. By recognizing file headers, this feature lets the software conduct a deep scan and find out all missing files.

Improved Preferences icon

Improved Preferences

The latest version of the software includes major improvements in the Preferences menu. It now includes options to Preview, Add new file header, and Edit file header. The file preview has been modified to support preview of corrupted files in the safe mode, both in thumbnail view and running preview. Also, if you’re unable to find the desired file format in the list of supported formats, you can then add a new file header or edit an existing one to the list.

Selective file type, hard drive / volume recovery icon

Selective file type, hard drive / volume recovery

In a unique bid, this software allows users to scan only a desired region of the hard drive or volume to find deleted media files. Any files found are then provided for preview and recovery. This feature can save a lot of time in case you know the exact location on the hard drive / volume where a photo / media file existed before being deleted. Similarly, you can instruct the software to scan the memory only for selected file types.

Recovery of Unicode Files icon

Recovery of Unicode Files

In addition to the wide range of photo, audio, and video file formats mentioned above, the Mac photo recovery software also supports the recovery of Unicode files, thus eliminating the need for a converter or any other supporting software. Keeping this in mind, the Stellar Phoenix Mac photo recovery is one of the most versatile software available in the market that helps recover photos from Mac.
