How To Recover Deleted Files On Mac OS X With Disk Drill Software
Last week, we asked our community about their thoughts of Mac data recovery. While only a few did know about such a possibility, most of them weren’t really impressed either. The reason was simple enough: even we haven’t been able to find an effective Mac data recovery software that is easy to use. The data recovery software industry works in extremes: they’re either for the ultimate tech-savvy or quite ineffective. So, as a result of all these, most people believe that it’s impossible to recover deleted files in Mac without deep tech knowledge. But, you know what? They are wrong.
Disk Drill for Mac OS X — The Solution
Disk Drill is a piece of software that is going to change the way you consider data recovery in Mac. It is one of the best data recovery software for Mac OS X we have seen. Disk Drill also offers useful sets of features, such as Disk Cleanup and Disk Health Monitor. Provoked by these features, we got our hands on the latest version of Disk Drill in the previous week and we were impressed by the performance and the brand-new UI. So, we also thought of giving you an in-depth tutorial on how to use Disk Drill to recover deleted files on Mac OS X.
In this step-by-step tutorial, we will tell you how you can recover lost/corrupted/deleted files in Mac in just a few clicks. It doesn’t matter if you’re completely new to data recovery and have no idea on how to recover deleted files on Mac, this guide will help you.
A Brief Intro
There are a few things to note before we begin data recovery on Mac using Disk Drill.
- In this tutorial, we are going to recover some deleted files from a USB Drive, connected to the Mac.
- Disk Drill can be used for general file recovery from your Mac itself if you want. Depending on version of macOS you’re using, certain permissions should be allowed.
- Cleverfiles, the developer, has included some additional features like Duplicate Finder in Disk Drill; it needs to be noted that we are covering only the data recovery part here.
- Disk Drill is compatible with many platforms including Android and iOS. So, if you wanted to recover some deleted photos or text messages from your Android phone, you can do that using Disk Drill.
Now that you have an idea about the software and the data recovery process, shall we get into the steps.
How to Recover Deleted Files on Mac Using Disk Drill
Let’s get into the steps quickly.
You have to download and install Disk Drill from the official website of Cleverfiles. It’s a small package and is quick enough to finish the installation in minutes. Once you have opened the main UI, you can see the list of existing Drives in the Mac.
Connect the USB Drive from where you’d like to recover deleted files. Wait for Disk Drill to detect the drive and show it in the Drive list.
Click the ‘Recover’ button on the right side to start scanning.
Disk Drill will start scanning the connected drive for recoverable files as soon as you hit the Recover button.
Depending on the size and type of the files inside the disk, the process may take up to a few minutes. It has to be noted that Disk Drill tries every Data Recovery method by default.
In a minute or two, you will be able to see a few folders of data found in the USB Drive. Click on the folder named Found Files and you can see the list of the files that can be recovered.
Once you have selected the files you want back, click on the ‘Recover’ button on top.
Wait for a few seconds or minutes when Disk Drill recovers the selected files. According to our experience, it is clear that Disk Drill has one of the quickest data recovery engines ever.
The program was able to recover a huge amount of data in a few seconds, which is great. The files recovered will be automatically saved to a destination.
You can always go back and recover more files if you want. Or, in case you want to recover things later, there is also an option to save the Recovery Session.
So, that is, folks, how you recover deleted files from macOS device using Disk Drill for Mac OS X.
The Bottom Line
