The best file recovery software for Mac OSX Lion?
Posted 03 February 2013 - 11:46 PM
Today I was very stupid and while I was adding files to my external hard drive, I accidentally replaced a folder with different files in it instead of merging it with the folder that already existed. I am a graphic designer and the folder that I replaced was almost 2 years of graphic design work that I've done.
I was wondering what would be the best software for data recovery for the price? It is under 20 gb of lost files. I ran VirtualLab Data Recovery and it showed me that it pulled PSD's (Photoshop) and INDD (InDesign) files so that must mean that those are it? (It wont let me view big files over 5 mb, which would be nice to make sure that it can recover the files that I needed and not jarble. VirtualLab wants $99 for 500 gb of recovery but I definitely don't need that much. The lowest package they have is $40 for 100 mb that doesn't work for me either. I don't know what to do. I'm trying not to be really sad.
Thankfully I had some designs in other places!
Thank you so much,

Data Rescue for Mac by Prosoft has always gotten good reviews.
My buddy used the PC version with good results a number of years ago.

backtrack 5 has forensic carving tools built into it. if you know anything about linux, i highly suggest you put it on a live disc or usb and boot into it then try to "carve" your hard drive for the missing files. it has 3-4 carving programs all free, all will get files of any size

I have used Data Rescue for Mac by Prosoft before and had great results. It ranges from 80-90 dollars depending on where you get it but something tells me 2 years worth of graphic design is probably worth the money! Hope this turns out well for you! Good luck!

Data Rescue or Boomerang. Both great but Boomerang is a bit more expensive.
