From Cloud BT


We found iBoySoft Data Recovery a very impressive and well grounded software that recovered our data with no hassles. We tested out the product on both Windows and Mac in a few scenarios and were pleased with the results. In most cases, 95% of our data was able to be located. We were pleased with the additional functionality, for example, pausing and restarting the scan (Windows and Mac) and being able to only show particular type of files (Mac only). Learn more >>

on the free trial, if you have a video longer than 30 seconds, there's no point in recovering it.

Accidentally deleted my primary Mac account, and I was desperately searching for answers to get my project back, until I run into iboysoft, by far the best recovery application on the market right now. Easy to use and fast

Had a disk drive which unfortunately became uninitializeable. While other Software couldn't restore the Data, iBoysoft Data recovery was the only software which also restored the Names and Folders of my Data, which saved me a lot of hassle. 5/5 would recommend

I had previously accidentally deleted a very important file of mine, I believed I would never see this again and began to panic... until I came across iboysoft which located the file for me in minuets. absolutely thrilled that I have now recovered the file, thank you iboysoft!

I bought your software as the hard drive (APFS) from my old MacBook pro did not get properly mounted after one hard power off. The data is perfectly fine and your software was able to quickly detect and restore the files. Unfortunately none of the restored file is functional. I have followed your instructions (Find Lost APFS Partitions) from iBoysoft tech support and the files are now correctly restored. Thanks for your assistance.
