But what happens when something goes wrong? This can leave even the most technologically savvy user looking for an Android data recovery solution.

The iPhone and Apple’s other iOS devices have revolutionized the way we communicate, enjoy media, and pursue entertainment and productive endeavors on the go.

As good as the iOS and iTunes applications are, there is a definite need for iphone data recovery software.

We had the opportunity to test drive Stellar’s software suite – Mac Data Recovery. We’ve tested various Mac recovery software in the past claiming to achieve recovery under the circumstances listed by Stellar, and our experiences have been less than consistent.

With that in mind, we carried out a couple of tests to evaluate how well Mac Data Recovery performs against accidental deletion, hardware failure, and corruption related issues. We were very pleased with the results.

 

Recover Deleted Files

Even with files already emptied from trash, we have seen how Mac Data Recovery makes it easy to undo file delete operations. You would think that once deleted, your files are permanently gone. Not with this program. It makes use of advanced techniques to scan your entire hard drive for recoverable files and lets you recover them with ease. Once retrieved, you can be certain that they are restored to their original file names.

Stellar Mac Data Recovery recovers any photo, video or audio file formats and can retrieve any documents such as Word, Excel, PPT, etc.

 

Reformatted Drive

Next we tested how well the software copes with recovering Mac data from an accidentally reformatted drive. We selected the scan volume option and immediately folders were recovered. Macintosh Data Recovery then runs a more detailed search that outputs the found data to the OS X data structure. 

After going to digging through the folder hierarchy, I was able to find my test files. While this test took a little time, one must realize that the test is looking through the entire volume as opposed to searching for individual files.  Mac Data Recovery accomplished this task in what we would consider to be a standard amount of time.

 

Failed Partition

We setup a test to evaluate how well Stellar Mac Data Recovery was able to recover Mac files from a failed partition. To do this, we placed a couple of files on a drive and then botch the partition attempt. Under normal use, the files weren’t accessible or found.

We then launched Mac Data Recovery and were presented with the option of scanning for volumes, create image, and raw data recovery. We selected raw data recovery and the software immediately started populating a list of files in the botched partition. Amongst those data were the planted files we were looking for!

 

Recovery from Time Machine

This is a new added feature of the software. The Time Machine, through its regular backups, offers a great approach to ensuring data on a Mac is preserved. However, in some cases, a backup will be removed even if it is still needed or one could become damaged unexpectedly. If your Time Machine backup drive has suffered file structure corruption resulting in inaccessibility of data, this recovery software will come in handy to restore all your files in a few clicks.
 

Deleted Volume Recovery

A local hard drive can have one or multiple volumes configured for file storage. Each might have a different file storage system such as NTFS and ExFAT or they could all use the same type such as HFS+. Unexpected loss can occur in situations where an accidental reformat takes place or data corruption makes the partition inaccessible.

We tested how well the software copes with recovering Mac files from an accidentally reformatted or deleted drive. We selected the scan volume option and immediately folders were recovered. We’ve seen how Stellar Mac Data Recovery can search and rebuild corrupted volumes or volumes deleted from these formatted drives:
 
• HFS
• HFS+
• FAT
• NTFS
• ExFAT
 

CD/DVD, Mac Photo Recovery 

Lost, deleted or formatted photos, scratches on your CD and DVD rendering them unreadable – these can easily be remedied with Stellar Mac Data Recovery.

It can securely recover inaccessible files and in any format (jpeg, gif, png, etc) from a variety of hard drives, discs or external storage device.

  •  Recovers files from Mac HDD and external hard drives
  •  Retrieves data from pen drives, camera and hybrid drive
  •  Recovers data from Mac SSD, SD Cards, USB Drives etc.
