Data Rescue 3 is the best digital data recovery software on the market for recovering files from a problem hard drive or that have been previously deleted. Data Rescue 3 is for computer data recovery and works when other tools fail. Data Rescue 3 is also completely safe to use since it does not attempt any risky repairs to the drive it's scanning. Data Rescue 3 is the safest, most powerful software for data recovery. Data Rescue 3 is the same software used by many data recovery services, law enforcement, all major branches of the U.S. Military and major intelligence agencies. Data Rescue 3 has saved our customers from having to use a data recovery service, which can cost thousands. You will need to save your recovered files to either an internal or external hard drive (USB or FireWire), removable media device (such as a Zip or MO) or a networked drive.
Q: Why is Data Rescue 3 different than other products on the market?
A: Focusing on data recovery, instead of hard drive repair, Data Rescue 3 will work in more cases, recover more effectively, and deliver your files in better condition than other utilities you may have tried in the past. Data Rescue 3 analyzes your entire hard drive looking for your data, then it meticulously re-assembles your files and stores them to a different location.
Q: Can I recover files that I accidentally deleted, or from a reformatted hard drive?
A: In OS X, when a file is deleted, for example by dragging it to the trash and emptying the trash, the file's name and folder information is usually erased by the system, and is therefore irretrievably lost. However in most cases, the most important part of the file - its contents - are still present on the disk. If a drive is reformatted, usually the original file catalog is permanently lost and thus recovering files by their original name and directory location is not possible and thus files are recovered by content. Finding the file by its contents alone is in general a difficult task, requiring algorithms to recognize those contents among all the billions of bytes of data on the disk. This task requires algorithms that are tailored to each specific file type. Data Rescue x made a start at this by providing support for about ten important file types that can be recovered by content. Data Rescue II increased this content scan capability by an order of magnitude, supporting more than one hundred separate file types. And Data Rescue 3 once again increases this content scan capability. (See the following questions.) If the file types you are looking for are among the supported types, there is a good chance that Data Rescue 3 will be able to find it. Beyond the ten-fold increase in number of content scan file types supported, Data Rescue 3 enhances your ability to find deleted files in another way: the Deleted Files Scan scans only the free space portion of your drive, greatly reducing the number of files that you must look for to find particular ones. In addition to all of this is FileIQ. FileIQ allows you to add your own file type to Data Rescue 3 to further increase it's capacity to recover your important files. FileIQ works by analyzing your file samples and adding the file patterns so that your User Defined file type can now be located. This vastly increases Data Rescue 3's capabilities to find your deleted files.
Q: Will Data Rescue recover all file types?
A: Data Rescue 3 has an extensive list of hundreds of file types it can recover (listed here). If the file type you are looking to recover is not listed here, there is a powerful new feature call FileIQ that allows Data Rescue 3 to learn about new file types from user-supplied samples. This greatly extends the number of potential Reconstructed file types supported.
Q: What if my drive won't mount or only partially operates?
A: Data Rescue 3 ships with a bootable DVD, so you can boot your computer directly from the DVD.
Q: Will Data Rescue 3 recover pictures from a digital camera media card, that have been deleted, reformatted or a corrupt media card?
A: Yes, Data Rescue 3 can recover digital images from digital camera media cards as well as hard drives.
Q: I only deleted one file, do I have to recover all the contents on my hard drive?
A: Data Rescue 3 allows you to preview the file before recovering it and you can select the individual files without recovering the whole drive.
Q: I am not very technical, what if I need assistance using Data Rescue 3?
A: Prosoft offers FREE pre and post technical support via phone or email.
Q: What if my drive is physically damaged?
A: Prosoft offers a "White Glove Service". This is our full-service drive recovery service where we can do hard drive failure recovery.
