No matter whether you’re a Windows user or a macOS user – a recovery software always comes in handy when you accidentally delete a file.
Do note that you should be able to recover most of your data – but you need to ensure a couple of things before attempting recovery.
In this article, we will take a quick look at the Remo recovery software for Mac.
How recovery works usually?
I always encourage people to know how the recovery process normally works – so that you can ensure hassle-free recovery of your files.
So, here’s what happens:
When you delete a file accidentally or for some reason – there’s a data loss, the file/data still exists (most of the time) but you lose the access to it.
The properties of the storage device might change after a data loss, but the files still reside there – unless it’s overwritten by new files. In order to keep the deleted files safe (recoverable) – you need to make sure that you do not write anything new to the storage device.
It’s a very simple process – without unnecessary technical jargon, and I won’t complicate things either. But, if you are curious – you should check out the Wikipedia page for Data Recovery.
Now, let us move on to the review.
Remo Recover: Key Features
A software utility isn’t worth installing unless it offers a decent amount of useful features to go with. Remo Recover seems impressive and checks most of the important features required for a recovery software:
- Recover data from Mac volumes
- Trash file recovery
- Advanced scanning algorithms to recover files from HFS+, HFSX, FAT16, and FAT32 partitions.
- “Find tool” to quickly locate a file from the list of recovered files.
- Preview files before recovery
- Ability to save recovery session – you can just continue recovering without scanning another time.
These features should be enough to make a compelling recovery software solution for Mac users.
Don’t you think?
Wait, let’s not get carried away. We have more things to talk about…
The User Interface
Even though you consider it as a common Mac document recovery software – the user interface matters.
I’m more a user experience guy – of course, we’ll also take a look at other things as well.
For the UI, I wouldn’t say that it offers the best user experience I’ve ever encountered – but it is indeed easy to use.
Unlike some other tools, it doesn’t pile up hundreds of useless options – the UI isn’t confusing, it is pretty straightforward.
Does it Really Work?
At the end of the day, if it does what you expect – it’s a pass.
So, we tried recovering a couple of deleted files from a volume.
So, you should expect it to work – if you ensure that you did not write anything new to the affected storage drive.
As you can observe in the image above, you can choose from multiple options to recover files or specifically recover photos or if you are focusing a particular volume or drive, you can do that as well.
Even though it supports recovering data from corrupt/damaged disks – I would encourage you to go for the trial version before purchasing it.
The basic edition costs 59.97 USD while the Remo recover pro version would cost you about 95 USD.
Personally, I would go for the pro edition – but it could have been priced better.
But, you have the trial version to test drive, so you can first try it out before purchasing it.
Overall, the recovery software is good. The advantage of this software would be the number of features it offers and the simple user interface to navigate around. The working and efficiency of the data recovery software seem good enough.
The only trade-off for some people could be the price – maybe they could offer a cheaper edition for basic recovery options.
But, that’s just my opinion on it. It’s definitely something to try out!
