Multiple Recovery Methods

As a invaluable Mac data recovery software, Disk Drill helps to rescue your data no matter what happened and no matter who’s responsible for data loss: accidental deletion, Disk Utility error, data corruption, etc., with several powerful scanning methods.

  • Undelete from Recovery Vault
    When something is deleted Recovery Vault makes it possible to recover not only the file itself, but also its properties, such as original file name, location, etc. This method is extremely precise and support all file types and all original properties.
  • Quick Scan(Pro)
    Using Quick Scan you can locate deleted items on FAT and NTFS disks, this scanning method is fast and accurate, but is unlikely to find data deleted long ago. Is very fast, but not precise as not all deleted files still exist in the areas of search.
  • Deep Scan
    Deep Scan is your last call for help if nothing else works or if data loss is really severe. While it’s not capable of recovering original file names and locations, as well as other meta-data of recovered items, Deep Scan does an impressive job of getting files that were deleted/lost many days ago.
  • Universal Partition Search
    Recover partitions on HFS+, FAT and NTFS volumes. It works on a disk level, and treats the disk as binary entity, quickly scanning the disk for signatures of known partition headers. Any found partition is mounted as a virtual Disk Image and can then be scanned for lost files.
  • Scan for Lost HFS Partition
    To find and rebuild HFS+ partitions on your Mac that have been reformatted, you can choose this method. It works on a partition level, scans the partition for the backup copy of the HFS+ partition header. It then uses the backup copy to attempt to recover the data structures that existed before the partition was deleted (formatted). Any found partition is mounted as a virtual Disk Image and can then be scanned for lost files.
  • Rebuild HFS+ Catalog File
    Rebuild the catalog of HFS+ partitions that won’t mount correctly. Disk Drill uses the existing partition header to locate the B-tree catalog of the HFS+ partition and optimizes it by rebuilding its B-tree structure. The newly rebuilt directory is mounted as a virtual Disk Image and can then be scanned for lost files.
  • Allocate Existing File System Data
    If the Finder fails to read your data, or Disk Utility reports your drive as unformatted, Disk drill uses its own method to scan the volume or partition and attempt to retrieve the existing data (files, folders, etc.).
