Posted by Juno to Mac Data Recovery on December 6th, 2017

After the release of High Sierra 10.13, most users have upgraded their Mac to this new macOS. As is known to all, the default file system on macOS Mojave 10.14/High Sierra 10.13 is different from all previous macOS and is named APFS file system. So when unfortunately we lose files on Mac, we are losing files on an APFS drive.

As APFS has not been released for long, many Mac data recovery software have not supported it yet. does DiskWarrior support APFS data recovery?

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

The answer is NO. According Alsoft official declaration, although DiskWarrior 5.0 is compatible with macOS High Sierra 10.13, but Apple File System (APFS) disks are not recognized by DiskWarrior 5.0 and will not appear in the list of disks.

As DiskWarrior doesn't support APFS data recovery at all, we need to look for other Mac data recovery software to recover lost data from APFS drive, iBoysoft Mac Data Recovery is such a Mac data recovery software which can support APFS data recovery.
