Review of Softtote Mac Data Recovery Free
As we all know, there are so many free Windows utilities to solve each kind of problems for our PCs. How about Mac? Unlike Windows freeware, there aren’t many free tools for Mac OS X, especially for Mac data recovery. Luckily, I found one piece of Mac Data Recovery Software—Softtote Mac Data Recovery Free.
Softtote Mac Data Recovery Free is a totally free Mac utility to recover the common bmp, jpg, png, tiff, mp3 files from Mac-based internal/external, USB device, SD card, digital camera, and so on. It is workable for Mac OS X 10.6~10.9, including the newly released Mavericks! What’s more, it is made up of three wizards: File, Photo and Lost Partition Recovery, which will scan all your deleted, formatted, lost and inaccessible data. Among these features, what attracts me most is that it has no limitation for recovery, because most freeware only enables us to recover 1 GB data. So, it is really nice to use this good Mac freeware.
Some Mac users maybe ask “How can we make sure they are lost files and all lost files have been found?” Good Question! This software can also enable you to preview found files and you can make a choice to decide which files to recover. Moreover, it can recognize NTFS, HFS, HFS+, HFX, FAT, EXT2 and other file systems, which seems really powerful for Mac data recovery. Now, let’s see the main interface:
From the picture above, we can see how easy to handle this software, even a novice can handle this well. Right? Now, get to know these three wizards one by one:
File Recovery: This wizard enables you to deep scan and quick scan your lost files on your partition. Also, deleted files can be also as a choice to scan. It can scan your lost, formatted, deleted and inaccessible documents, emails, recycle bin, photos, videos, audio files in different file formats.
Photo Recovery: This allows you to deep scan photo, videos, and audio files with different formats, including png, tiff, gif, bmp, mp3 and so on.
Lost Partition Recovery: If you had formatted or lost your partition, this function can help you find your lost partition and all the files on it. However, you must make sure that your data on the device hasn’t been overwritten.
Having introduced this Mac Data Recovery Free, how do you feel? If you still want to find a good free data recovery tool for your Mac, this will be your choice. However, it has some limitation to recover Mac lost files, but there is no problem to deep scan and quick scan your lost files. If you want to recover other type of files, I suggest you use their Pro version Softtote Mac Data Recovery for data recovery.
