Bloody shareware

about Disk Drill Jul 2012

This entry is badly labelled. Disk Drill is not free. A free version does exist, but the feature you probably want it for, recovering your files, has a steep $89 price tag. To reiterate, the free trial of Disk Drill will show you your deleted files, but it WILL NOT recover them. I had to tell people this because it really annoyed me when I found out.

about Disk Drill Jun 2011

This software rules! It took quite long to "deep scan" a 1 TB raid 0 broken disk, but it popped out a vast majority of the files I assumed I had lost forever. And the same is doing for the other volume. Impressive! The customer care is fast and the developers are very active. This program (I use the one on app store, but those are quite the same) is a little jewel. If you ever will have the sadness to face a RAID 0 brokedown, consider this app for a spin.
