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.

I was able to use our iMac to make the boot disk of iBoysoft Data Recovery, and I successfully recovered all of my home folder items I needed. Thank you so much!

Unfortunately the APFS software costs more than HFS version. And the problems started with Apples latest but not greatest filesystem. Thank you, Apple.And thanks iBoysoft. First I thought this was scam, but iBoysoft Data Recovery recovered big video data from a broken APFS SSD which was not playable after recovering with DiskDrill Pro. Thumbs up!

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
