CleverFiles has released version 5 of Disk Drill for Mac, which is fully compatible with the latest macOS Ventura and recovers lost data from iPhones and iPads running the latest iOS and iPadOS 16.
According to the folks at CleverFiles, the new version introduces numerous usability and under-the-hood enhancements. With just a few clicks, Disk Drill 5 can start scanning for lost data on your computer’s internal or external drive, connected mobile devices, memory cards, digital cameras, and more.
In addition to Quick Scan, which searches for any recently deleted files regardless of their type, the updated Deep Scan can reconstruct over 450 file formats while reading your storage devices sector-by-sector in a binary mode. With the new recovery chance prediction feature, users can see how well the data will be restored with labeling that indicates high, medium, or low chances of recovery. Additionally, it’s now easier to manage recoverable data with the new file labeling, advanced filters, sorting, and improved preview.
Previously, it wasn’t possible to recover data directly from RAID arrays using Disk Drill, but that changed with the release of the new version, which introduces data recovery from Windows and Linux software RAID arrays. What’s more,, the new Disk Drill 5 for Mac can now mount, scan, and undelete your files from virtual hard disk drives in VHD and VHDX formats.
Disk Drill 5 recognizes over 40 new file formats for musicians, photographers, designers, video producers, and other professionals – Google Pixel Motion Photos, Insta360, Canon raw images, True Motion, RED Cinema videos, XD, XMIND, and more. Depending on your recovery case, on an average scan, Disk Drill finds up to 30% more lost files, according to the folks at CleverFiles. Other new features in version 5:
° Additional recoverable file entities: full-disk scans may now produce additional recoverable file trees under the new “Lost data structures” group in the scan results section.
° Cross-platform scan session management” scan sessions are now cross-platform, so you can scan a device on your Mac, save the session, and open it on your Windows computer to instantly see all found files without having to scan the same storage device twice. The feature also makes it possible to start a scan on one computer and finish it on a different one.
° New modular user interface that’s “simplified, flexible, and modern.”
