Almost two and a half years after version 4 was released, today the new version 5.0 of the Disk Drill application is available for Mac and Windows for data recovery of files and folders that have already been deleted and includes a completely new user interface, among other things .
Costs only if help is possible
The most important information to keep in mind about Disk Drill: The app is free to download and run on hard drives where data loss has occurred. Even without payment, Disk Drill provides information here about possible recovery operations and their expected success rate.
In case of an emergency, only those that the application can help out of the proverbial jam are asked to pay. Here, the estimated $89 for the license is still a lot of money, depending on the accidentally deleted project, photo album, or text, but probably invested without batting an eyelid. Who likes to write his thesis twice?
Reconstructs over 450 file formats
Disk Drill’s new Edition 5 is compatible with macOS Ventura as well as Apple’s M processors and can reconstruct over 450 file formats – 40 more file types than before, according to the developers.
In addition, Disk Drill is said to be improved to recover up to 30 percent more of the lost data on your own system.
The recent update mainly focused on the new multimedia format support and can now also recover Google Pixel Motion Photos, Insta360, Canon RAW files, RED Cinema videos and more.
Disk Drill has been actively developed since 2011 and introduces itself in the embedded video. The new version 5 can be installed from macOS Catalina and provides information on the most important innovations on this product page.
