Data RescueOverview

Use Data Rescue to recover:

  • crashed, corrupted or non-mounting hard drive
  • deleted, damaged, or lost files
  • reformatted or erased hard drive

One powerful new feature found in Data Rescue 4 is BootWell. Your Mac's main hard drive (sometimes referred to as the Main HD or Boot Drive) is where all of your computer files are stored. When there is a problem with this hard drive it can be very difficult, frustrating and time-consuming to get those files back. BootWell is an all-new feature that makes recovery of your main hard drive painless, fast, and easy.

  • Works on all Mac hard drives even if they fail to mount or only partially operate
  • Recovers digital pictures from your camera media even after it has been erased or reformatted
  • Recover your entire Mac hard drive or just the files you need.
  • Recovers all file types from any HFS/HFS+ formatted hard drive
  • Tuned for all modern OS X versions 10.7.5 and later
  • Recovers from any iMac, Macbook, Macbook Pro, MacBook Air, Mac mini, MacPro, including Retina displays
  • RAW data recovery is enabled from the entire Mac hard drive
  • Supports Data recovery from NTFS-based Boot Camp Partitions


  • Fixed launching on 10.7
  • The startup disk is always shown (except in BootWell) but disabled and with a message to indicate users need to use a BootWell drive to scan. This should avoid confusion with it not showing up at all.
  • When creating a BootWell drive, the "Data Rescue" partition gets reset so pre-existing data is destroyed
  • An alert is shown at startup (only once) about DR’s change with storing multiple scans
  • Fixed double-clicking partitions (which are disabled) in Create BootWell Drive which could start the BW creation process and crash
  • Added a label to the Drive Failure Warning window to make it more clear that you have to select a drive for the Ignore/Details buttons to work
  • The source list now updates when expert mode is toggled
  • Documentation has been updated
  • The backend process’ code has been modernized for 10.7+
