There is plenty of data recovery software for Mac to choose from, which makes it rather challenging to find the best one that suits your needs.

Generally speaking, you should pay attention to the following criteria when looking for the best data recovery software for Mac:

  • It should allow you to preview lost or deleted files before making a purchase.
  • It must support mainstream file formats, such as images, videos, audio, documents, etc.
  • It should be capable of restoring deleted or lost data from all kinds of data loss scenarios.
  • It should be able to recover lost data from various storage devices with a high recovery rate.
  • It must be fast, easy to use, updated, and safe.
  • It should be compatible with the latest macOS operating system and those still in use.
