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.

This app has restored successfully photo libraries (from Apple's Photos app) that were lost since I accidentally formatted my external drive, which was formatted as APFS.
I am surprised it worked and that it worked pretty fast as well.
The main reason is: Apple is still not documenting APFS, which is why big brands like TechTool or DiskWarrior still don't have compatible apps.
How can some unknown Chinese company then offer an app that can indeed restore lost apps and files?
I purchased a pro license through that website. It took like 10 minutes until I got the e-mail confirmation, but I got it.
I googled that website and found that many are reporting fraudulent activiaties for, but I got my license key, it worked, and it got me back gigabytes of lost files, bundles and apps that resided on a lost APFS partition!
This makes this app (including the other Chinese apps such as EaseUS Recovery) unique, since NOBODY else offers real file/directory restore from APFS!
An lastly: If you restore executables (Apps), you'll probably find your apps not able to be opened. You have to do a "sudo chmod +x" on the executables (for usual Mac apps, these are normally inside the appbundle, in the "->Contents-MacOS" folder), then your restored apps will run again, too.

I like this product!!! I've tried to recover some deleted Excel docs from my Mac Sierra for a while now and every tool was actually given him a lot of info, but crypted and not helpful. Also, some tools would not find my file. with iBoysoft I managed to get my files listed in seconds, without having to look through what the tool was picking. I actually stopped the process of scanning once all my files were visible. For somebody who's not very technical, this helped a lot! Thx!
