Apple Mac Data Recovery

Mac is a series of personal computer designed, developed, manufactured, and marketed by Apple™ which uses its own designed and developed operating system called MAC OS. The original Mac used “Motorola” and “IBM” processors, however recently they have launched their new hardware based on Intel x86 processors. The Mac OS which is used natively on Mac hardware was originally known as “System Software,” the current version of Mac OS is Mac OS X which has been code named like puma, jaguar, panther, tiger and leopard.

Mac OS X saves data using HFS and HFS+ (Extended and Journaled) file system; like all other platforms, Mac users also face data loss, some of the most common causes for data loss which are supported at DiskDoctor Data Recovery have been indicated below.

What are My Data Recovery Options?

DiskDoctor Data Recovery' has been serving Mac users as well as printing, graphics design, animation, and entertainment industries that mostly use Mac platforms.

If your device has displayed any of the symptoms listed above, then you may consider any of the following recommendations.

DIY (Do It Yourself)

Although data storage devices in most of the Mac laptops and desktops are not easily accessible, but if one is technically savvy and comfortable in handling the data storage devices, and sure about physical fitness of their data storage device, then they can download demo versions of recovery software to determine whether the issue could be addressed using a recovery utility before spending money to purchase the software. If this helps, then more power to you.

Note: Data storage devices in most Mac machines are not easily accessible; and any attempt trying to get the hard disk drive out may result in unnecessary damage to the machine itself. Therefore, we do not recommend this solution to most; as we have observed the situations getting out of hand while attempting DIY quite often mostly due to inexperience. And often destroying any chances of future recovery attempts.

Get Professional Help

If your data is vital, then seeking professional help to recover is the only way to go about it. Professional help includes only well established and reputed data recovery companies with a proven track record.

Taking your disk drive to a computer store for data recovery purpose equates asking a nurse for brain surgery; as 99% of the computer stores' recovery capabilities are quite inadequate as data recovery services is not their core business.

How Much Data Recovery Would Cost?

The recovery cost for a single Mac hard disk drive with HFS or HFS+ can run a wide range (anything from $350 to $3000 depending upon the nature of problem). It may not be possible for us to offer an exact recovery cost without diagnosing the data storage media. The best thing would be bringing or shipping the problem drive to our lab. We will perform a free evaluation of your device and give you an exact dollar quote based on the challenge on hand. The diagnosis process takes 2-6 hours and is performed as soon as we receive the faulty data storage media. So, we prefer to offer free diagnosis (a saving of $150) before we give you a no-obligation firm recovery quote. At that time, you can decide whether to go ahead with the recovery process or decline it. Upon your quote approval, we will try to fix the drive problems, recover the data, and a list of files and directories of recovered data will be emailed to you for verification. The recovery cost is independent of the size of recovered data. No recovery results in zero charge except return shipping.
