Mac Data Recovery Guru 2.0 launches today, bringing advanced file recovery. Not only can Mac Data Recovery Guru resurrect deleted files, it can find files lost to faulty drives, even drives suffering from the “click of death.”
The new interface lets users browse their deleted files, and recover them by file type. Simply click on the lost file and it will show a preview of the contents, and click recover to save it. The only thing that can stop Data Recovery Guru 2.0 is if the file has been overwritten, or if secure delete has been used.
Mac Data Recovery Guru 2.0 benefits from speed enhancements, thanks to newly optimized code.Enhanced threading means you can carry on working while the software scans your disk.
Mac Data Recovery Guru will work on drives with failing motors or the click of death. The software simultaneously provides a surface scan and a bad sector count (if appropriate).
Mac Data Recovery Guru also offers greater device support. Any media — including flash drives, hard drives, CDs, DVDs, SSD drives and all types of memory cards — are supported. If Disk Utility can see the drive, there is a good chance that the files can be recovered.
It works with all Macintosh disks (HFS filesystems, HFS+, HFSX filesystems), Windows disks (NTFS, FAT filesystems), Linux disks (Ext2, Ext3, Ext4 filesystems), Unix disks (XFS, UFS filesystems).
Finally, file type support has been enhanced. Data Recovery Guru 2.0 will get data fragments of any kind of data and provide it in a variety of formats (such as any raw text embedded anywhere on a system, or jpegs embedded in PSDs, etc).
Data Recovery Guru is available from www.macosxfilerecovery.com for US$99. A limited version is available as a free download.
