about Disk Drill and DiskDigger, R-Studio, Recuva · · Helpful Not helpful

Highlights From a review i previously wrote on my website:

The program itself is quite clean looking, and easy to figure out .

Disk Drill found over 164,000 total deleted files on the deep scan. …

I obviously don’t have time to go through them all and verify them

So I randomly picked 30 pictures, 30 videos etc and made sure they were not corrupted

To my surprise I actually found some found some large video files in there that I thought I had lost forever, including some wedding footage from years ago and the only footage of a friend who passed away 3 years ago other programs had failed to find them before which is a good sign for the program.

Lost a whole folder of important files on my Mac. Disk Drill scanned and found every file and successfully recovered my files. Easy to use and effective. The deep scan found everything I needed and even more it found all of the deleted files from years before.
I've downloaded it here: http://download.cnet.com/Disk-Drill/3000-2094_4-75984417.html

Bloody shareware

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.

It is labelled "free with limited functionality" which means that you need to buy the software to enjoy the full version

Disk Drill for Windows is freeware, try it http://download.cnet.com/Disk-Drill/3000-2094_4-76277044.html

Disk Drill for Mac is "free with limited functionality" but Disk Drill for Windows is freeware!

I've recovered all my photos for Free! Review: http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/download/system-desktop-tools/disk-drill-10188-3330359/

It is indeed free for windows so I would suggest adding another Disk Drill entry to alternativeto called "Disk Drill (Windows)" and label it as freeware and rename the mac version to "Disk Drill (Mac)"

We prefer not to add different versions for a product separately, as stated in our FAQ.

I have just written about the absolutely free version for Windows in the description and in the platform note.

I love Disk Drill’s interface. It’s quite simple and Disk Drill offers an amazing tutorial and a number of prompts inside it to help you find the right way.

This application is definitely an awesome Mac app and should be installed on every OS X computer on the first launch. What is great is that Clevefiles have a lot of cool features in Disk Drill Basic edition. The Free edition lets you recover deleted files using Recovery Vault, in case your disk was protected beforehand.

pros:

  • great interface;
  • feature-rich Basic version;
  • preview option before recovery;
  • free undelete from Recovery Vault.

cons:

  • PRO version is a bit pricey.
