February 2018, Disk Drill is the data recovery software that built for Mac OS X, Window users. It helps to scan the losing files, folder and recovery deleted or lost data from any storage device, iOS. Disk Drill is distinguished from the competition by its support of many formats (HFS, HFS +, FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, EXT3, EXT4), which allows recovering data also on the USB key or on a Windows disk. It is also funny to see that if you lend your USB key to a friend or a colleague, the latter can then find many files supposed to be erased … and that finally are not really.
✅ The Disk Drill provider gives all our readers a $34.99 Lifetime License for Disk Drill PRO.
To increase its chances of recovery, two types of safety nets can be activated: Recovery Vault or Guaranteed Recovery. The first one preserves the metadata of the deleted documents (but if the files in question are overwritten by a rewriting of new documents, the chances will be thin or null to restore them). The second one stores a duplicate of these files (within user-defined size and retention limits).
Both options can be used free of charge with Disk Drill “Basic”. In this same formula, there is the search for duplicates and the creation of a backup of his disk or a bootable external volume.

To take advantage of the more advanced restoration functions, or to revive a partition, you must switch to the Pro version ( $34.99 ). Cleverfiles also says that it has modified its algorithms to perfect these searches and restores, as well as the execution times.
The Pro version is also working on iOS and Android devices, however, the software did not know, for the moment, manage our iPhone on iOS 10 (it’s planned). With the various backup services in the cloud, it becomes difficult to lose content on your mobile. However, Disk Drill offers to recover photos, notes, text messages, SMS, voice memos or bookmarks or calendar events accidentally deleted.
✅ Disk Drill Review
In its free version, the software offers only the “scan”, a smart way to demonstrate the effectiveness of the program before offering a license that will save its data.
When the disk no longer has a valid file system, the software classifies the items by type, as below in our test. This is very convenient because you can choose to only recover photos.
Disk Drill is also able to recover a full disk or partition and save it in “DMG” format. Clearly, you can use it to make the raw backup of an external drive, for example, that you can restore to another drive.
The program allows to set up “Recovery Vault”, a system that runs in the background and makes it easier to restore a deleted file. Clearly, the program keeps a parallel file system, which avoids the tragedies (in case of unintentional deletion), especially in the event that Time Machine is not active (you are on vacation or your backup disk was not connected).
We also liked the possibility of putting a scan on pause to resume later. If the drive responds poorly or you scan large capacities, it is sometimes useful to interrupt the process and recover the CPU from the machine.
In short, a good little recovery program, located in French, with a nice interface and rather rich options. And most importantly, you can test the app for free on a damaged drive, before paying a license.
