5 Free Data Recovery Tools to Recover Data from Mac Drives

5 Free Data Recovery Tools to Recover Data from Mac Drives

Data recovery is the process of recovering lost or deleted data from different storage devices including a hard disk, USB flash drive, or removable media. Have you ever lost an important file and needed it badly?

Yes, there are ways you can follow to recover data by just restoring it from any recently created backup copy from an external hard disk. There are any number of manual (as well as automated) steps of recovery that can be applied with any level of user experience. Automated data recovery can be pretty helpful and will help you restore files with recovery software, of which there are plenty of options. Paid data recovery software often performs faster, though free software alternatives are certainly worth considering.

    LazeSoft is equipped with several features. This useful data recovery software assures the recovery of all the possible deleted or missing files from different types of storage devices.

This Mac data recovery software allows you to navigate through specific drives or locations, scanning for any deleted files under that particular location.

    WonderShare Data Recovery for Mac

      Wondershare for Mac is a great tool that helps you resurrect all your important files in one go. It’ll look for important files across the storage device and find traces of all the deleted or lost files. You can later search for missing files based on their type, size, or date modified.

      RAW recovery is another advanced option in this tool, which will help you find files that aren’t recoverable by any of the other recovery methods. Basically, it’s your last resort if none of the recovery options seem to recover your important files (or volume). Simply choose the RAW recovery option and let the recovery application perform a scan of the entire drive or any specific locations. It’ll take time, depending upon the capacity of storage device. It also gives you a preview of recoverable files and folders before actual recovery.

      You can pause the scan or entire recovery procedure mid-way and resume when ready using the “Resume Recovery” option of this Mac recovery tool.  This option is pretty useful when you don’t have time to run the complete recovery procedure.

          Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

          Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

          Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

          Does technology have all the answers?

          This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

          Creating technological solutions transparently

          This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

          Technology as the connecting tool

          Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

          “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
