When you first launch Disk Drill, you are presented with a guided tour and tutorial of its features. The developers understand how agonizing it is to lose and try to recover important data.

Disk Drill is an app that knows exactly how to recover lost files on Mac OS X and supports most major file types and file systems. It can recover your files from practically any storage device, including iPhone and Android devices. Disk Drill offers free bonus tools like disk cleanup and space visualization, duplicate files finder, bootable data recovery drive, precise backups, disk health monitoring.
So for example, if you delete files off a camera media card, your chances of recovering them are greater the less you reuse the card after those files are deleted. The more you use the card, the more you overwrite deleted data.
To use Disk Drill, simply click the Recover Data button in the menu bar, select the drive you want to recover, and then click »”Quick Scan” or »”Deep scan” to start the recovery process. To make the scanning go faster, you can specify the type of files you want to recover, e.g., pictures, videos, text documents, audio files.
Disk Drill will give you results of its search, at which time you can preview and select the files you want to restore.
