No matter what type of storage device you've lost data from, if you can normally connect it to your Mac and view the contents, Disk Drill can scan it. Even if you're currently having trouble accessing your hard drive or external device, there's a good chance our data recovery software for Mac will be able to rescue data from it. Disk Drill can help if you have:

  • Deleted files from your Mac's internal hard drive and deleted documents from a USB flash drive
  • Lost a partition on an external hard drive and lost music on an MP3 player
  • Erased photos from a camera and erased videos from a camcorder
  • Lost music on your iPod (Nano, Mini, Shuffle or Classic)
  • Deleted books on an e-reader
  • Been unable to access a memory card (SD card, Flash card, XD card, etc.)

File systems that Disk Drill can scan include:

  • HFS & HFS+
  • FAT/FAT32/exFAT
  • NTFS
  • EXT3/EXT4

The list of file types Disk Drill can recover is equally comprehensive. Quick Scan and Undelete Unprotected Data methods can recover ANY file type, but they can't be used in all situations. The Deep Scan method can be used in any situation and is able to recognize and recover over 80 different file types, including:

  • Photo files like JPG, PNG and TIFF
  • Graphic files like AI, PSD and INDD
  • RAW camera files like CR2, NEF and DNG
  • Video files like AVI, DV and MP4
  • Music files like AIF, MP3 and WAV
  • Document files like DOCX, PPTX and XLSX
