Disk Drill APFS data recovery on macOS Mojave/High Sierra

Posted by Juno to Mac Data Recovery on December 7th, 2017

Disk Drill is a Mac data recovery software that is designed natively for macOS. With it, we can easily protect files from accidental deletions and recover lost files from Mac drives. After upgrading to macOS Mojave 10.14/High Sierra 10.13, our Mac hard drive will be automatically upgraded to APFS file system. So when we lost files on Mac, we are actually losing files on an APFS drive.

As APFS is quite different from all previous file systems, many Mac data recovery software has not been able to recover data from APFS drive yet. Does Disk Drill support APFS data recovery?

Does Disk Drill support APFS data recovery on macOS Mojave/High Sierra?

Strictly speaking, the answer is NO. Although Disk Drill can deep scan APFS partition, but the found files don't have folder structures. In most situations, folder structures are very important for us.

What's more, Disk Drill cannot recover data from encrypted APFS drive, so we have to find a APFS data recovery software which really supports APFS file system, recovers data from APFS drive and encrypted APFS drive?

iBoysoft Mac Data Recovery is such a APFS data recovery software that can easily recover deleted/lost files from APFS drive and encrypted APFS drive.
