There are quite a few data recovery software for Mac solutions available online. Spending hours trying to make sense of it all can be a tedious task, so I have decided to give you my top choice for data recovery (that happens to work great on any Mac platform). The tool is made by EaseUS and is a professional solution data recovery software for Mac. So far I have been able to get any piece of data I needed with the help of this tool so I have been doing some promotion of it.
Naturally there are also data recovery programs that work without a fee, but are rarely able to handle all the various file types and storage devices. Finding the time to get just the tool you need can be time consuming, so sticking to a piece of software that always works seems like a good plan for me.
If you do opt for a free solution though, be sure to check that it does not come with any ads and that it will work for the file types you are trying to restore (as well as for the way you lost your data- deletion, corruption etc.).
It is also worth a mention that some solutions work for some devices. For example the Mac recovery program I listed, also works on any hard drives, USB devices, the PC and even other Apple products, such as the iPad, iPod and the iPhone!
All in all, be careful when selecting data recovery software. Make sure it will work before using it.
