Mac OS X File Recovery has introduced Data Recovery Guru 1.0 for Mac OS X (10.6 and higher), a utility that recovers files that have been accidentally deleted due to user error or hardware malfunction.

It requires 10.6 or later. Data Recovery Guru 1.0 costs US$99 and is available worldwide directly from the Mac OS X File Recovery website ( A free demo version is available for download.
