Mac OS X File Recovery has introduced Photo Recovery Guru 1.0 for OS X (10.6 and higher), an utility app that recovers movie and picture files that have been accidentally deleted due to user error or hardware malfunction. It costs US$19.99 and is available worldwide through the Mac App Store in the Photography category.
A targeted and less expensive version of their popular file recovery product, Data Recovery Guru, Photo Recovery Guru is customized to allow the user to focus on the recovery of photo, image, and movie file formats that have been accidentally erased. On hard disks, digital cameras, mobile phones, USB thumb drives, memory cards and gaming devices, picture files that appear to have been deleted actually remain until written over by new data.
Photo Recovery Guru locates and “unerases” these seemingly deleted pictures, picking up data remnants and recovering them for use. It generates preview thumbnails of recoverable files and can recover files at the same time it’s scanning for lost files.
