Mac Photo Recovery from Encrypted Drives

Mac Photo Recovery from Encrypted Drives

Mac users encrypt hard drives to protect data. The encryption on drives often presents a challenge for conventional photo recovery software. However, Stellar Photo Recovery for Mac recovers photos, videos, and audio files just as efficiently from encrypted drives and volumes as from unencrypted drives.

Disk Imaging for Quick Recovery

Disk Imaging for Quick Recovery

The Mac photo recovery software recovers deleted photos, videos, and audio files from macOS storage drives that have developed bad sectors. The disk imaging feature of the software helps to retrieve lost or deleted multimedia securely, without worrying about data loss due to drive failure. Just create a disk image for such corrupt macOS drives and run the Mac photo recovery tool on the disk image instead of the storage hardware. Recovering from a disk image is both faster and safer.

Save Scan Information & Resume Recovery

Save Scan Information & Resume Recovery

This advanced photo recovery tool for Mac lets you stop a running scan and save the scan progress up to that point in the form of a file. This scanned 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, with an option to display their respective screens on a single page.

Deep Scan for Better Results

Deep Scan for Better Results

The application’s advanced scanning engine quickly finds the recoverable items for most devices. However, sometimes certain files might not turn up after a normal scan. In such cases, the software does a ‘Deep Scan’ of the storage drive to recover every bit of lost or deleted media files. This feature lets the Mac photo recovery software conduct a comprehensive scan by recognizing the file header and finding out all the missing multimedia files.

Recovers Camera Specific RAW Photos

Recovers Camera Specific RAW Photos

Stellar Photo Recovery for Mac facilitates safe RAW photo recovery on Mac from popular camera brands, including Nikon, Canon, Sony, Panasonic, Fuji, Olympus, Kodak, etc. It recovers lost or deleted camera RAW image files such as SR2, CR2, NEF, RAF, ERF, K25, and more. In addition, the efficient Mac photo recovery can also restore deleted iPhone/ iPad photos and videos in HEIC and HEVC file formats.

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 to recover only what is required.

Recovery of Unicode Files

Recovery of Unicode Files

Unicode is a character encoding standard that has widespread acceptance. The Mac photo recovery software supports the recovery of Unicode files, thus eliminating the need for a converter or any other supporting software. The exclusive feature makes the software one of the most versatile tools in the market for Unicode file recovery from Mac.

Retrieve detailed file information

Retrieve detailed file information

Along with recovering deleted photos on Mac, this powerful product also facilitates retrieving detailed information related to the recovered files. This information includes the file name, original date timestamp, camera model/name, and resolution.

File Preview with Customized Recovery

File Preview with Customized Recovery

The software shows a preview of corrupt files in safe mode, both in thumbnail view and running scan mode. You can turn on/off the file preview anytime based on your preference. Further, you can add a new file header to the list or edit an existing one, if the desired file type is not in the supported formats list.
