About Data Rescue
Data Rescue focuses on data recovery, rather than hard drive repair. Data
Rescue analyzes your entire hard drive looking for your data, then it
meticulously re-assembles your files and stores them in a safe location,
including icons, dates and file hierarchy. Data Rescue recovers this data
while leaving the original disk untouched. For emergency use, Data Rescue
ships on the latest Mac bootable CD.

About Data Recycler
Data Recycler X provides instant undelete that protects the user from
accidental file deletion. By protecting drive space being occupied by
deleted files, Data Recycler allows the user to recycle the deleted trash
and return all (or selected) files back to the user in perfect condition.
