Breckenridge, Colorado – Mac OS X File Recovery today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Mac Data Recovery Guru 2.5, an important update to its data recovery utility for OS X. Mac Data Recovery Guru recovers all common file types from any kind of device due to user error, accidental formatting, hardware malfunction, or any other cause of data loss that does not involve overwriting the original file.
Employing content-based file scanning, Mac Data Recovery Guru opens the device in read-only mode to ensure files are not accidentally overwritten. Mac Data Recovery Guru shows users previews of deleted files and displays what data can be recovered in a familiar, column-based window similarly employed when users browse files in the OS X Finder.
Since most devices allow files to remain intact until written over by new data, there is a very high chance of recovering lost data after the device has been formatted or a file has been deleted. However, many data recovery apps are significantly large, meaning that even downloading the data recovery app onto the drive in question runs the risk of overwriting the data to be recovered. To avoid this common pitfall, Mac Data Recovery Guru is very small in size and remains the safe, first-step choice in any data recovery scenario.

Regardless of location, Mac Data Recovery Guru recovers all text on a device. The latest version of Mac Data Recovery Guru now includes the ability to scan for embedded files, such as JPEGS embedded in PDF files or Photoshop files embedded in Illustrator files. The new feature is a unique, processor-intensive addition that is particularly well-suited to forensics investigation and analysis. The update also features many stability and performance improvements.
“Data Recovery Guru works in conjunction with backup software to provide a more real time solution for getting back deleted files,” says Derek Schauland of TechRepublic (5 Jul 2012). “The experience of using Data Recovery Guru was very painless. There was no need to ask for help or look online to figure out how the application worked and what it was all about, and the pricing for the program seems appropriate as well. It has all the makings of the best little tool I hope I don’t need to use.”
Featuring a thorough, high-speed scan, Mac Data Recovery Guru allows users can browse through and recover deleted files during the scanning process. Selected files appear as text or graphic previews and can be immediately recovered the moment they appear in the scan window. Mac Data Recovery Guru works on any device that acts as drive on the Mac, including those that are not visible. With the ability to see and scan devices that OS X does not display, Mac Data Recovery Guru offers users the option to search for deleted files only or to search for deleted and regular files. Even in many severe cases, Mac Data Recovery Guru can recover deleted files.

“What really makes Data Recovery Guru shine is how incredibly easy it is to use,” says J. Glenn K¸nzler of MacTrast (March 2012) “Simply select the volume you want to recover files on, and click the “start scan” button. You can even review the results it retrieves while the program continues to run. I overall found Data Recovery Guru to be an extremely simple and effective solution for recovering lost files, and grant it a rating of 4 out of 5 stars.”
“Mac Data Recovery Guru has two priorities,” says Ben Slaney, CEO of Mac OS X File Recovery. “The first priority is its ease of use. Our simple, uncluttered, two-button interface allows for 2-step Mac data recovery and is as easy as using the Finder built into Mac OS X. The second priority is that the advanced application produces outstanding results. Its scan will find deleted files (even on physically failing hard drives) that other apps miss. Additionally, Mac Data Recovery Guru can scan and recover files from an unprecedented number of different kinds of devices. Mac Data Recovery Guru is the best and easiest data recovery utility available.”
