By recognizing file headers, this feature lets the software conduct a deep scan and find out all the missing multimedia files.

Select Specific File Type or Region for Recovery

Select Specific File Type or Region for Recovery

You can scan an entire Mac drive or restrict the scope of scanning to a specific region to recover your photos, videos, and audio files. This helps save a lot of time in case you know the exact location on the hard drive or volume, where a photo or media file existed before being deleted. The files found are then available for preview and recovery. Similarly, you can instruct the software to scan the storage media for specific file types for effective Mac photo recovery.

Recovery of Unicode Files

Recovery of Unicode Files
