Helps you recover data from both internal and external storage devices, as well as from lost partitions and formatted hard disks
Data loss is a reality given that most people have accidentally deleted documents from their computer's hard drive, as well as lost files either from lost partitions or malware corrupting data after an infection.
Even if you haven't been through any of the scenarios presented above, you might have at least once emptied your Mac's Trash bin and then remembered about an old file you deleted but still need.
Support for data recovery from both internal and external devices
Either way, having a data recovery application on your Mac is a necessity, and the Wondershare Recoverit utility tries to fill this niche by allowing you to recover any data from any storage device affected by one of the data loss situations we've already presented.
The Wondershare Recoverit app comes with a point and click streamlined user interface designed to make it very easy to pick the type of recovery task you want to perform.
Its startup screen makes it simple to choose between trash, lost partitions, formatted disks, deleted files, external devices, or malware attack recovery tasks, as well as a recovery scenario fit for most types of data loss, appropriately named “All – Around Recovery.”
It should be noted that if you want to undelete files from your Mac's startup disk, you need to disable macOS' System Integrity Protection feature.
Streamlined recovery workflow with a few bugs ans quirks
If you are willing to forfeit SIP's protection, you can do so by rebooting your Mac, holding down the Command + R keys to enter Recovery Mode, and running the “csrutil disable” command in a Terminal window you can open via the Utilities menu at the top. Once you finish recovering your files, you can rapidly toggle back on the SIP feature by going through the same process and running the “csrutil enable” command.
This being said, after the recovery scanning process ends, Wondershare Recoverit will present you with the list of files it has managed to find allowing you to choose the ones you want to restore by clicking the Recover button on the bottom right side of the recovery screen.
As a downside, Wondershare Recoverit does come with a quite annoying issue, as it will display a rainbow spinning ball of death instead of the macOS mouse pointer once in a while, with its interface completely locking until the mouse pointer restores.
Well-rounded and straightforward data recovery utility for Macs
Additionally, Wondershare Recoverit's registration form does not support copying and pasting, and thus it requires you to manually input both the e-mail and the 30+ characters registration key.
On the whole, the already mentioned bugs notwithstanding, Wondershare Recoverit did its job properly throughout our testing period, and it did manage to recover all of the files we deleted on both internal and external disks.
This coupled with its extensive support for a multitude of external and internal storage devices, as well as a large assortment of file system types (e.g., APFS, HFS+, HFS X, NTFS, and FAT/exFAT), make Wondershare Recoverit an excellent tool for mitigating data loss scenarios without drawing a sweat.
