TUNESKIT FEATURES

Our personal data is beside on our computers also stored on iPhones, iPad’s and such. Like our computers, our iPhone also faces the same issues of accidental deletion of data being photo’s or messages. This is where tools like TunesKit iPhone Data Recovery comes in handy. There are many similar tools around and they all work well. What sets them apart is ease of use and fast scanning/recovery. TunesKit is both really, being easy and fast.

Now what’s special ;

The reason for making TunesKit iPhone Data Recovery distinguish from all iOS data recovery solutions is that it is the fastest data recovery tool to recover lost and deleted files on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Besides, there also exist some other flashpoints in this product.

  •       1. Easy interface
    This data recovery application is totally user-friendly, the file restoring process has been streamlined to just 3 simple steps. There’s no need to worry even if you are not skilled in computer.
    Firstly, connect your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch to the computer with USB cable. Secondly, scan and preview loss data. Thirdly, select and recover deleted files.
  •       2. Highest success rate
    Based on advanced technologies and thousands of times we tested before application insurance, you are most likely to succeed in recovering all loss data with TunesKit iPhone Data Recovery.
  •       3. Free lifetime update
    Purchasing this software is definitely cost-effective on account of the service it provides – free lifetime updating. Even though Apple’s products are updated frequently, the software we provide can adapt to your needs perfectly.
  •       4. 100% safe retrieval
    Data recovered after retrieval does not overwrite existing files, as a consequence, your files will be 100% safe.

  •       1. Recover deleted iOS data
    Many facts result in data loss on iPhone/iPad/iPod touch. TunesKit iPhone Data Recovery prevent all those kind of occurrence from your data loss, for instance, you delete data mistakenly, device or screen broken, fail to upgrade iOS, forget password, operate improperly, lost iPhone, device attacked by virus, factory reset, etc.
  •       2. Maximize restore of all data kinds on iDevice
    This iOS data recovery software of high efficiency is able to retrieve about 20 kinds of lost data which covers contact lists, SMS, iMessages, photos, videos, notes, calls, WhatApp/Kik/Viber messages, voice memos, Safari bookmarks, reminders, calendars, and so on.
  •       3. Rescue deleted iOS data from iPhone/iTunes/iCloud backups
    Benefit from the state-of-the-art data recovery technology applied in TunesKit, you can easily find back all deleted data in three smart recovery modes basing on different loss situation. As for accidental erasure, just restore loss data from iPhone directly; as for device damaged, you can restore form iTunes or iCloud Back-up with ease.

RECOVER LOST DATA FROM:

PRACTICE

So all data above is just information from the developer. More important is my personal experience using this application. The interface needs some updating really as the typeface is not very prominent, this is a personal remark of course.
The selection and information provided on the screen is accurate and useful. Scanning of your iPhone is fast, really fast…. no doubt about it. After scanning an overview of found data is presented in a segmented listing.

Step One: Connect iOS device to PC

Step Two: Scan and Preview

Step Three: Select and Recover

After hitting the Recover button, the selected data is recovered really fast and also stored in your Documents Folder. One nice extra feature of TunesKit is its ability to convert Apple’s HEIC formatted images to JPG on recovery.
This setting is available in its preferences.

Note: Update your iTunes to the latest version to prevent any trouble. Also, never launch iTunes while Tuneskit is running. In case it would sync automatically, the best way is to turn off the automatic syncing in iTunes:
Go to Preferences >> Devices >> Prevent iPods, iPhones, and iPads from syncing automatically.

The list below will show you any recovery method available:


VERDICT

TunesKit iPhone Data Recovery is a time and money saver. The application comes to rescue your precious data incase of accidental deletion. It works fast and easy without any hiccups and places recovered data in a preset folder.

Its interface is providing all necessary information and even opts for a HEIC format change to JPG on recovery. Is it better or worse than the competition? I can’t tell for sure, but its scanning and recovery is blazing fast. The safe retrieval claim by the developer should set your worries aside. Just have a go at the trial version and find out yourself.

 

 

 

PATH FINDER 8 review

Slider

 

Version 8.2.4
Developer Cocoatech
Website https://cocoatech.com/#/

 

ABOUT PATH FINDER 8

Path Finder 8 is the latest version of Cocoatech’s macOS Finder replacement. Finder being the integrated file handler in macOS and really improved in Mojave OS, does come with limitations. Path Finder 8 is along with Forklift the best replacement for the basic Finder. The most important change in version 8 is ‘ Modules ‘, and the way they are organised and used.

Path Finder 7, had bottom and right shelves and a sidebar, and each of them could accommodate four modules. Path Finder 8 however changed the static modules(shelves) in flexible modules. You now may add as many modules in a single window as you need. You can arrange, dismiss or drag them away if you don’t need them any longer in the interface. ( check the video’s below )

Path Finder 8 is absolutely loaded with features. It isn’t easy to find a meaningful action which is doesn’t provide.

PREFERENCES

Slider

 

INTERFACE

The interface is fully customisable and with its dual pane option a joy to use for data handling. The menu bar is customisable as is the total interface including the new modules. Pat Finder 8 is a step forward but sadly also a step backwards in terms of functionality.

As I was trying to drag a fielder to Path Finders sidebar, I noticed it would show the inserting image ( line) but not actually granting access to the sidebar. This should be fixed asap, as it is one of the used features of a customisable interface.

If anyone really misses the ability to drag your most used folders to the sidebar, as was done in Pathfinder 7 but doesn’t work in Pathfinder 8, you can downgrade. Here’s the link to PathFinder 7 should you decide to downgrade: https://get.cocoatech.com/PF7.zip

Collect files with Drop Stack, then copy or move them in a single step. View and manipulate hidden files, is also one of its tricks to help you out.

 

 

 

MOJAVE DARK MODE
Dark Mode being a matter of taste, I still feel it add’s no real advantage other than when editing images. The full dark-mode of Mojave makes me search for icons and relevant interface features. Some areas read well ( good contrast ) but
most menu’s are harder to read due to lack of contrast. I understand business and selling points, but I feel Apple has overstepped itself with dark-mode. A good thing preferences allow us to choose and pick the mode we like and feel comfortable with. Path Finder 8 is in dark-mode or basic not without faults yet. Just check the Drop Stack area ( Left top ), and try to read any header. I can’t, maybe due to age but this is no good. Even in plain mode ( basic mode), there is
a image distortion. ( check the small image below ). This happens when you click your mouse in a screen area next to the opened Path Finder 8 interface. Suddenly lines darken en add thickness ? This shows Path Finder is still in development I guess. Its no big issue, but simply needs to be tackled in future releases(updates).

 

 

VERDICT
Path Finder 8 is the best replacement for your Mac’s Finder. It provides a full options interface and ease of use. The addition of Modules is a bonus but not something you can’t do without. However its interface is showing all customisable information or setup possible. The dual-pane and cover-flow are features you can’t do without. The dark-mode is not really my cup of tea, but may suit others. Dragging folders to the sidebar is a feature that needs to be implemented in next updates as it is one of the crucial aspects of file handling. Still I feel Path Finder to be a great improvement over macOS Finder. Path Finder will always remain our default file handler with or without modules implemented. Once you experienced the pleasure working with Path Finder, you never want to part.

PARAGON HARD DISK MANAGER 1.2 review

Slider

 

Version 1.2.241 (1.2.241)
Developer Paragon
Website https://www.paragon-software.com/home/hdm-mac/

 

ABOUT PARAGON

The company was established by a group of MIPT students in 1994. A separate mobile division, called the Mobility Division, was formed in 1995. The German office opened in 1998, the Swiss office in 2000. In 2004, the company started working with Fujitsu-Siemens on its handheld PCs Russian localization.[2] Next year, the company expanded the product line of office and gaming applications for Symbian OS and received the “Developer of the Year” award in the Handango Champion Awards 2005.[3]

In 2011, PCMag recognized the company’s flagship solution Paragon Hard Disk Manager as the best hard drive management program. Paragon Software Group also won Global Telecoms Business Innovation Award 2011 for their mobile solution.[4]

All-round solution to protect, maintain and manage your Mac drives.

  • Snapshot-driven backup & powerful recovery features
  • Resizing partitions and redistributing unused space
  • Recovering lost or accidentally deleted partitions
  • Disk copying and secure data wiping
  • NEW APFS container resizing
  • NEW macOS 10.13 High Sierra support  ( No official MOJAVE support yet )

WHY USE PARAGON HARD DISK MANAGER

The macOS built-in Disk Utility is all many users will ever need. Apple’s software handles formatting HFS+, FAT32, and exFAT volumes and partitions. The macOS Disk Utility also supports verification and repair of native OS X disks. However, there still are plenty of reasons for wanting to do more with your drives. A few examples are optimising OS X, partitioning drives, or backing up and restore data faster then Time Machine. Paragon HDM also supports the latest APFS file system but not for backing up (still in process)! Additional features are recovery of accidental deleted partitions and SIP support.

 

INSTALLATION

Installation of Paragon HDM is not difficult, but additional files need to be installed during the proces. System Preferences need to allow the additional files to install. A small mounter utility is installed during installation needed for full high-speed access to virtual drives. PARAGON VMDK MOUNTER is installed in your Mac’s applications folder.

PARAGON VMDK Mounter for Mac OS X. ( Legacy product )

The first solution with full high-speed access to virtual disks under OS X
  • Very easy to use – mount a virtual container by double clicking or using Finder’s “Open With…” context submenu
  • Powerful Command Line Interface utility allows you to create and mount a virtual container
  • High performance – high access speed to virtual disk content and high-speed data exchange between host and guest OS
  • The first and only solution with full read/write access to virtual disks (even larger than 2TB) on OS X

(Caution: SIP should only be disabled by advanced users who know what they’re doing and understand the risks associated with modifying system-level files.

PREFERENCES

DISKS & PARTITIONS

Like Disk Utility, Hard Disk Manager’s interface displays a list of all mounted volumes. HDM provides more detailed disk maps, color-coded partitions and logical disks and the file system in use: HFS+, FAT16/32, NTFS, exFAT, ExtFS, and free space. This is a definite better way to show relevant disk information. Hard Disk Manager also displays partition information as a list at the bottom of the window.

HDM can perform; format, partition, and work with non-native NTFS or ExFS volumes. You do need Paragon’s replacement drivers installed to access files. HDM works equally well with solid-state storage (SSD), USB flash drives, and Apple’s hybrid Fusion Drives as with traditional platter-based disks.

BACKUP & RESTORE

One of Paragon’s Features is Snapshot technology, which allows users to create an exact sector-level copy of the operating system and all disk data. Paragon states an improved performance in time between Time Machine and other Mac-backup solutions. The Snapshot feature, offers improved performance with system recovery times. Hows that for improvement.

The Backup and Restore function is simple, as the Create New Archive wizard detects all mounted OS X disks automatically, or you can manually select partitions from the disk map. Every backup needs to be initiated by the user as scheduled backups are not part of the Backup feature. Hard Disk Manager saves archives as Paragon Virtual Hard Drive (PVHD) images by default, which also supports incremental imaging. Incremental Imaging minimises time and storage space required for backups of the same volume(s).

VERDICT

Paragon’s Hard Disk Manager is a must for every user who needs to manage their disk in a more professional way than use of the basic macOS Disk Utility. HDM provides faster backup and restore tools than Time Machine ( see image above). The (re)sizing abilities and the recovery option takes it a step further than most applications. Full Mojave support is not available at this moment (APFS backup functionality). So if you’re already running Mojave you might wait for the update, or if APFS is not your external disks format, buy this good utility saving you time and efford.

ABOUT PARAGON

The company was established by a group of MIPT students in 1994. A separate mobile division, called the Mobility Division, was formed in 1995. The German office (Germany-based software company that develops hard drive management software, low-level file system drivers and storage technologies) opened in 1998, the Swiss office in 2000.
In 2004, the company started working with Fujitsu-Siemens on its handheld PCs Russian localization.[2] Next year, the company expanded the product line of office and gaming applications for Symbian OS and received the “Developer of the Year” award in the Handango Champion Awards 2005.[3]

INSTALLATION of NTFS for MAC

The installation of NTFS for Mac is easy and straightforward, but needs a reboot to finalise installation. It also needs to load an extra file in order to make the menu bar add-on.

WHY USE NTFS for MAC

Can’t write, copy, edit or delete files on Microsoft NTFS-formatted drives from your Mac? It’s because macOS has limited support for Windows volumes — that is, you can only read data, but can’t write or delete anything. Microsoft NTFS for Mac by Paragon Software provides blazing fast, unlimited read/write access to Microsoft NTFS hard drives, SSDs or thumb drives formatted for Windows computers! This version also supports Apple’s latest APFS file system (see image below).
This utility makes your external storage usable on any computer system Windows or Mac. So your data remains interchangeable and is fully adapted for macOS MOJAVE.

 

PREFERENCES

Beside the menu bar add-on, Paragon’s NTFS for Mac also has some preferences to set. Here you may choose to activate the new MOJAVE dark look which looks great. Even if you have never used the Disk Utility you will find it very easy to learn the simple interface.

Slider

 

PERFORMANCE

Microsoft NTFS is one of the primary file systems of Windows. If you work on a Mac computer and need to read or write files from HDD, SSD or a flash drive formatted under Windows, you need Microsoft NTFS for Mac by Paragon Software. Write, edit, copy, move and delete files on Microsoft NTFS volumes from your Mac! Fast, seamless, easy to use. Mount, unmount, verify, format or set any of your Microsoft NTFS volumes as a startup drive.

Microsoft NTFS for Mac by Paragon Software is the fastest file system driver on the market: 6x times faster than competing solutions ( scans ).

 

ERASE & VERIFY
Volumes can be created, erased and formatted just like one would do using Apple’s Disk Utility application. The difference is that the Paragon allows you to do these activities on NTFS drives. You can manage your volumes easily from one place.
The verification of a volume will take some time depending on the size of the volume. Is you use ‘ verify ‘, on your basic partition your system becomes unusable for a few minutes, till finished.

 

VERDICT
Running a Mac and have NTFS formatted external disks, you definitely need NTFS for Mac. It is well prices ( check) for offers!, and enables read and write access to your NTFs drives no matter what size. The speed at which you can read and write the data on these drives is the best of any competitor if there really is one. Anyone who needs to use Mac and Windows computers, needs this app for easy data transfer.
The interface is best of any application found, and the application itself offers additional drive tools for taking full control. The latest version also supports Mojave and APFS format to complete a perfect application. It is without real competition and deserves a full 5 star reward.

 

 

CLEANMYMAC X review

Version 4.0.1
Developer MacPaw Inc.
Website. https://macpaw.com/cleanmymac

 

CLEANMYMAC X  version 4.0.1

Reviewing software like CleanMyMac automatically pops the question, ‘ Does a Mac need maintenance’ ? A valid remark considering MAC’s are less affected by system failures to windows systems. This latest update of CleanMyMac is renamed to CleanMyMac X.
However an average Mac user, changing to latest software versions, doing lots of trials and uses his mac daily, will in time accumulate leftovers, tons of caches or unused apps in the OSX-system. This is where a software package like CleanMyMac X, is a good option for optimizing your system and keeps your mac running smoothly.

 

PREFERENCES

Slider

 

MENU HELPER WIDGET

The updated Menu bar widget is one of my favorite changes to CleanMyMac X. CleanMyMac Menu now shows you lots of useful information about your Mac’s system.
You can free up memory, remove trash, and run a speed test on your network, all straight from the Menu bar widget.

 

CHANGES IN CLEANMYMAC X

A complete redesign of CleanMyMac is one of the things you’ll notice first ! The interface is stunningly good and well designed.

These are the major features and upgrades of CleanMyMac X:

  • Smart Scan: The all-in-one center for analysis and optimization of your Mac. Now it includes Cleanup, Protection, and Speed scanners, all launched with a single click.
  • CleanMyMac Assistant: An intelligent adviser that provides useful explanations, suggests further optimization steps and reminds about regular cleanups.
  • Malware Removal: Your Mac’s guard, checking yoursystem for vulnerabilities and removing malicious files.Includes a dedicated vulnerability database updater.
  • Optimization: A module that lets you manage login items, launch agents, hung and resource-consuming apps to increase system responsiveness.
  • Updater: A tool that delivers the latest available versions for your installed apps. Now you have all updates in one place.
  • Reinvented Menu: The Menu bar widget has a whole new look with more information available, shows the most resource-consuming applications, and provides useful instant features.
  • Better algorithms for scanning for junk –  MacPaw’s team created a better algorithm for scanning for junk.
  • Faster scan – CleanMyMac X has an improved scan time of up to three times faster.
  • Leading-edge design: A new progressive look of the beautiful Mac cleaner.

 

MAINTENANCE

Maintenance is on of the available tools to keep your Mac running smooth. This tool is taking some time to perform all tasks, but the result is very good. It tackles most important areas of maintenance even if you don’t seem to have a problem these tasks
should be run every few months I feel. It all depends on your personal use of your Mac. Are you a developer/tester or reviewer?  Then maintenance is probably an important factor to keep things running smooth.

 

UNINSTALLER

This tool is a definite upgrade over the last version of CleanMyMac. Check the different selections of applications on your Mac, Unused , 32-Bit applications. The 32-Bit applications will not be supported by the coming Mojave macOS, so you might start looking for an alternative or delete them. You will be surprised to see that you run more 32-Bit applications which will stop working on the new macOS.

The uninstall tool itself performs really well and finds the same number of files as App Cleaner or Trash Me. They all differ somewhat in files depending of the size and plists of the application.
You just don’t need a separate ‘uninstaller’ anymore !


UPDATER

The updater is also a nice new feature of CleanMyMc X. Is shows available updates when launching the application, and performs the update if possible. App Store updates are shown but need App Store for updating as all software updating programs do.
It also shows the ‘ Whats New’  description of the available update. Nice feature for those who don’t have an application like MacUpdater.

CLEANUP

 

CleanUp will find any leftovers, log files, Cache files, unused language files etc. on your system. The scanning is fast and accurate. However don’t ever just use the Clean button after scanning ! Always walk through the found results and check or uncheck any item you wish to keep. Clearing out your Cache of Safari results in loosing stored images and other content . Cache was invented to speed up Safari and not load images every time again if they already exist in cache. Always check the items you wish to keep or clean.

It finds broken links and all launch items as well. A broken link is not easily found by a user, CleanMyMac X however finds any. Photo Junk procedure, is like System Junk and iTunes Junk. Photo Junk will find a huge list of duplicates if you’re a fan of Photo Editing like me. I store many images all alike, but just with some editing. CleanMyMac X just tracks the image information and treats it like duplicates. So again, DON’T press Clean if you’re certain you wish the images to trash.

PROTECTION

This section is new in CleanMyMac X and helps keeping your Mac free of Malware and other vulnerabilities. This will NOT replace your separate installed Anti Virus application. I assume we all have stuf like Bitdefender or Sophos or Norton installed to keep us save from harm. But in this case its good to have a second protection layer installed. I can not check the used database for malware so can’t predict how effective it really is as the databases differ and protection threshold can not be set.
Its just a ‘One Click’ operation, which alerts when malicious files are found.

Still I welcome a additional protection from CleanMyMac X.

VERDICT

 

CleanMyMac X is a definite great update over the earlier versions. It looks great and the clean interface makes it an easy to use tool for anyone. It will free up memory for you from the nice menu widget and has tons of great features helping you out all the way. Still as mentioned before, check the scan-results in case of Smart Scan or System Junk. Don’t throw away stuff you wish to keep! Another feature I liked is the Trash Bin cleaner. Ever tried deleting your Backup files ? If straight from your bin, it will take forever. CleanMyMac X Trash Bin cleaner helps out!  I am impressed with this update and added tools and run a smart scan and quickly remove junk and free up hard drive space and memory.
The price of CleanMyMac X is not a bargain, as it sells 1 year subscriptions. A lifetime subscription will cost you € 63 ( special offer ), but will keep your Mac running smooth for years. A full 5 star result from Macsoftreview.

 

 

 

GIHOSOFT iPhone Data Recovery review

ABOUT GIHOSOFT

INSTALLATION & SETUP

This is the easy part of GihoSoft’s application. Just drag the icon to your applications map and you’re set and done. There is no preferences needed nor available in this application. So you’re ready to go !

USING GIHOSOFT iPHONE DATA RECOVERY

My first remark is you should always have/do a valid Backup of your device with iTunes. Always better be safe then sorry. Just nodding your head agreeing to this is not enough, DO IT ! This also applies to any computer-data you’ve got. BackUp your Mac, your photo’s and documents. Just about anything you can’t do without in times of trouble. I get asked by friends many times ” can you fix my computer problem”, and YES anything can be fixed but sometimes not without loss of data. So save your stuff as memory sticks or external harddrives are cheap nowadays.
In this case we lack a backup from iTunes, as the application warns about the missing backup !  No worries, you may stil recover your lost files straight from your iPhone. Gihosoft iPhone Data Recovery will start scanning your device which can prove time consuming when your found backup on iTunes is encrypted which is recommended. My iPhone took 1 hour to finalise scanning,

  • Memos & Others: Notes, Calendar, Reminders, Safari Bookmark, Voice Memos

SCANNING YOUR IPHONE

Appearance of the layout is somewhat mixed feelings. Its not like the modern iMyFone application, but works well. All information is displayed as this is a ‘one trick pony utility’, scanning and presenting the preview of found files and leaves you to hit “NEXT’ and wait for the recovery.
The one thing that worries me is the absence of choice in doing a recovery from your iTunes Backup or skip this and go to your iPhone directly and scan for your missing data. Now to software always takes you to your iTunes backup wether is is Old or New. An older backup might not have your desired data available, and without skipping ( well I can’t undo the selection mark ! ) take you to your iPhone straight away. I may be wrong but will ask for tech. info from Gihosoft.
Choosing only ‘messages’ from the first selection page takes me straight to my iPhone, but again scanning takes 59 minutes ( only 16Gb used on iPhone ). Why when selecting all it takes me to iTunes backup, and when selecting just messages it goes straight to the iPhone puzzels me.

ABOUT IBOYSOFT MAC DATA RECOVERY

iBoysoft Mac Data Recovery is one of a few data recovery software that fully supports APFS file system on macOS High Sierra. Technically, it goes beyond most of data recovery program which claim they can recover data from APFS drive. iBoysoft Mac Data Recovery is the only one in the market which can recover data  from encryped APFS drive and recover deleted/lost APFS partition. Also, it can recover data from formatted, corrupted, unmountable, unreadable, inaccessible APFS drive. Besides, iBoysoft Mac Data Recovery supports file systems HFSX, HFS, HFS+, exfat and FAT32. 

FEATURES

  • Recovers data from formatted/reformatted drives
  • Recover data from RAW, inaccessible, corrupted or damaged partitions
  • Recover data from deleted or lost partitions
  • Recover data from APFS drive & encrypted APFS drive ( ONLY PRO VERSION )
  • Provide technical service to clients ( ONLY TECHNICAL VERSION )

  • Supported File Systems for Mac OS – HFSX, HFS, HFS+, exfat and FAT32, APFS

USING iBOYSOFT MAC DATA RECOVERY

After all technical blabla.. we come to the point where we actually start using the recovery utility. The initial setup was as usual, just drag and drop the application in your applications folder and you’re all set. Your Mac will prompt you every time for your system password as this utility wants to change your basic data. All done, we face an overview of all detected (storage) drives and we may choose which to examine for lost files.

First check the preferences for the correct settings!

In order to find as many lost files as possible we have the Deep Scan option available. This option however will take a longer scanning time which is obvious as it digs deeper in the lost data. The scan however is done fairly quick and it all makes sense to even a novice user. iBoysoft Mac Data Recovery has an easy interface (which could do with a visual update) and all steps are simple to follow. Once your lost file is found and located, you can choose ‘Recover’ and the file is set in its location.

Apple’s High Sierra 10.13 has some build in security settings, preventing ANY Data Recovery program to just simply scan/update the system startup drive !! If you want to look for lost files on your startup drive you need to perform some extra tricks in order to do so (below copied from iBoysoft website)

 

How to recover lost data from startup drive in macOS High Sierra 10.13

“System Integrity Protection” (SIP) is a security mechanism built into the operating system that prevents normal programs from reading the startup drive, so System Integrity Protection would prevent iBoysoft Mac Data Recovery from scanning startup drive in macOS High Sierra 10.13. To recover lost data from startup drive in macOS High Sierra 10.13, we need to temporarily disable System Integrity Protection (SIP).

Step 1: Boot to Recovery OS by restarting your machine and pressing & holding down Command + R keys at startup.

Disble SIP step 1

Step 2: Launch Terminal from the Utilities menu, enter the command: csrutil disable and press Return.

Disble SIP step 2

Step 3: Launch iBoysoft Mac Data Recovery, choose the startup drive and click “Next” to scan lost data.

Step 4: After the scan completes, preview all found files, choose the files we expect and click “Recover” to get data back.

Tips: If lost files are not found in quick scan mode, please check “File types” option in Preferences panel, check deep scan option and try again.

SUPPORT PROVIDED

iBoysoft have a support page setup  (https://iboysoft.com/support/) on their website which is explaining all how to’s and questions. Well done iBoysoft !

VERDICT

We found iBoysoft Data Recovery doing a very impressive job. Easy to use software that recovered our data with no hassles. There are more data recovery utilities on todays market but his is a pleasant and great working well adapted and explained application.
The only remark I personally can make is the plain interface which would be more attractive if somewhat coloured. However this is just personal taste and makes no difference in using the utility. I think it performs really well and fast. So if you’re looking for a Data Recovery tool check out this baby as it is surprisingly good.

CLOUDMOUNTER 3.1 review

Version. 3.1
Developer Eltima Software ( https://cloudmounter.net/  )
Website spons. link:  https://cloudmounter.net

 

ABOUT ELTIMA

Eltima is a software developer for Windows and Mac related applications. They are in business for 15 years and provide smaller but useful utilities. SyncMate and Folx are some fine examples of their applications. Their last marketed application is called CloudMounter ( version 3.0 ) which is a neat and practical utility which we will discuss in this review.

CloudMounteris an application for macOS developed by Eltima Software, released on July 12, 2016.[1]It has both standalone[2]and Mac App Store[3]editions, with several technical differences between the two.[4]

INSTALLATION & OPTIONS

Installing CloudMounter is simple and easy. Straightforward drag & drop in your applications folder and you’re set.

What’s newin CloudMounter for Mac v3.0:

– From now on you can mount Dropbox, Google Drive and OneDrive services for free;
– Encryption for aforementioned cloud accounts is also without charge;
– Box cloud storage is now supported;
– Backblaze cloud storage is now supported;
– Amazon S3-compatible storage solutions are also supported;
– “Shared with me” Google docs can be managed in Finder.

CloudMounter enables mounting accounts of cloud storage services and file servers onto a Mac machine as if they were removable drives. Their contents then can be accessed through Finder.[5][6]It supports the following services:

  • Dropbox
  • Google Drive
  • Microsoft OneDrive
  • Amazon S3
  • WebDAV
  • FTP, SFTP and FTPS[5][7][8][9]

SETUP CONNECTIONS

Most Mac and Windows users will have one or more accounts on Google Drive and Dropbox, and any Cloud storage-server. Nowadays many users also have their own website which makes FTP client connections with CloudMounter a welcome feature.

For all of us running multiple Cloud accounts, CloudMounter can make your external account behave like a local drive, which is great for easy access and file-control. CloudMounter 3.0 supports a variety of connection options. The main window of the app is a connections manager, where each supported service is assigned to a button.[8]To mount a required drive, a user chooses the corresponding service, enters login credentials and adds a new connection to the list. Clicking “Mount” will display the new drive in Mac Finder.[9][10]

When verification has passed, a drive icon is placed on your desktop. You now can use the account as if it was a local disk, really great ! This is where CloudMounter excels providing you ( virtual ) local harddisks for each and every cloud connection.
No more web file handling/transfers, now you can transfer or open files like a normal harddisk. There is a little delay of course if you are transferring data over your wifi or home/business network to the cloud.

It will sync with your OSX system at system logon. It really works well, considering you’re dealing with a Virtual harddisk. Your private internet connection speed will probably have influence on your experience in behavior, but so does your private Google Drive on the web file handling.

INTERFACE

Interface has a nice and clean layout. CloudMounter 3.0 has nearly every type of online storage covered and connections are as stated simple to setup. For those using or trying to use WebDAV connections, make sure your path is set in the correct way. Most external WebDAV connections need an extra addition to your normal path, in my case;  remote.php/webdav/    check your provider for information if you run into problems.

PREFERENCES

Preferences are like earlier versions minimum. The first two options are set default for anyone I guess, and the third/fourth are optional for the user. You may want to use Encryption to keep your files safe and private.
Your cloud and remote server files are absolutely protected with CloudMounter encryption functionality. You can tune the data encryption and secure remote servers and cloud accounts, so that they can only be accessed from your instance of CloudMounter.

The encryption works that way that if someone somehow obtains the access to your storages from a different device, they will only see a confusing non-sense.

 

 

FINDER INTEGRATION

CloudMounter integrates in your Finder which makes it part of your local file-system. Handling files is now managed in the best way possible. Encryption is part of the Finders-menu and animated icons inform you about the file-status.

 

 

Unlike native clients of the storage services, CloudMounter does not perform synchronization and thus does not occupy hard drive space on Mac. The files are downloaded only when the user opens them.[11]The software allows adding any number of supported cloud accounts.[12][13][14]

CloudMounter does not store login credentials of the added connections. Passwords are kept in macOSKeychain. They are sent directly to the servers only when required. Logging into the cloud accounts is performed through their standard APIs.[14][15]

CLOUDMOUNTER & COMPETITION

CloudMounter is NOT the only application available of course. There is some stiff competition like Expandrive and Mountain Duck. After testing I can assure CloudMounter beats Expandrive in every aspect. Stability of an application is essential and Expandrive fails short . Mountain Duck has little more connection options available like Authentication.

CloudMounter 3.0 impressed with solid and stable performance !

 

FREE vs PAID VERSION

– Free version supports only for one Dropbox, Google Drive and OneDrive accounts with encryption.
– Paid version supports multiple connections of these services with encryption and additionally Amazon S3 and S3-compatible storages, FTP/SFTP/WebDAV services, OpenStack Swift, Box cloud and Backblaze B2.

 

VERDICT

Our verdict of CloudMounter 3 is easy to explain. Eltima launched an outstanding application ! Its easy to configure and options are plenty. Most external cloud-based servers are available and encryption is present for those wanting to safeguard their Files and Data.
The Finder integration makes it behave as a local drive which makes its usability effortless. I can recommend CloudMounter 3 fully as its a useful utility for everybody having multiple cloud accounts.
CloudMounter 3.0 will definitely make life easier for you. So get yourself the Free version or Buy the full version if you want all the options. Either way, you can’t go wrong with CloudMounter 3.0

INSTALLATION & PREFERENCES

Installation is simple and straightforward. Just drag & Drop the application in your Mac’s Applications and you’re set. No reboot necessary to start using Stellars Data Recovery. For the High Sierra users an important TIP is further down the review, make sure you follow these steps. The new interface of version 8 has improved a lot when comparing version 7.

Slider

 

So the preferences are quite extensive and choosing your desired recovery formats, save scanning time and accuracy. Saving your scans is also possible in the menu, good if you lateron wish to proceed with stored scan results.
Deep scanning is of course taking much more time to perform a full scan.

QUICK SCAN and DEEP SCAN on Data Recovery

The presented interface is so simple and easy to use. Click /Select any customization for your scan and step to Next. You will now be presented all connected discs/volumes internal as external. Select your disk which needs scanning and select Scan.
IMPORTANT: This is also the page where the option for DEEP SCAN is located

 Deep Scan: ‘Deep Scan’ is a type of scan that possibly looks through each sector of the storage media to find traces of lost or deleted files.
This type of precision scanning always ends up yielding accurate results. Deep Scan usually runs slower than other scans, since scanning involves checking each sector rigorously.
 Search File: The ‘Search File’ option provides you a set of parameters based on which you can search for the desired files in your scan results. You can search files by name, signature.
            The feature is definite advantage for those who need to save time by recovering only some selected files.

 

SCANTIME QUICK scan vs DEEP scan

QUICK SCAN took 2 minutes

DEEP SCAN took 79 minutes

 

 

 

 

 

 

So scanning Quick vs Deep makes a huge difference in time. Scan-time QUICK Scan: 2 minutes vs Deep Scan: 79 minutes.
The scan-result also differs 5647 files – 7062 files found !

So just scan ‘quick mode’, first time and check if your wanted recovery files are found. If so, just select Recovery and you’re done. If however, your wanted recovery files are nor presented in the list opt for the ‘deep scan‘ at the bottom of the interface and wait for magic to happen.

 

 

 

THIS IS IMPORTANT WHEN USING HIGH SIERRA !!!!

Stellar Phoenix Mac Data Recovery – Professional software recovers deleted files from macOS High Sierra 10.13 startup disk. But to restore deleted files, you need to disable System Integrity Protection (SIP) first and then run the software.

 

 

After System Integrity Protection (SIP) is disabled, launch Stellar Phoenix Mac Data Recovery – Professional to perform Mac data recovery on the startup disk. Once you have recovered your files, enable the System Integrity Protection (SIP) to protect your system files, processes and directories at the root level from being modified.

To enable System Integrity Protection (SIP) just type csrutil enable as mentioned in step-3.

 

Time Machine Backup Drive Recovery

Although a Time Machine Backup is supposed to house your critical data so that you can refer to it in emergencies, the drive on which you store the backup can get structurally damaged. If unfortunately, you’ve faced such a situation, don’t waste your precious time in looking for useless solutions. The software treats a Time Machine drive as a normal hard drive and presents the same user-friendly options to salvage all your crucial data. Alongside Time Machine data recovery, the software now supports Apple Time Capsule on sparse bundle disk images.

Indeed scanning of a 750 Gb Time Machine backup is piece of cake. It really doesn’t take a long time for Quick Recovery to do a full scan. Only a few minutes for the scan, the latter build of directory entries takes a lot longer then the initial scan itself. Still this is an important update of this program as your Time Machine will be your last resort when you’re in trouble. The ability to recover from this in our case external TM-Backups is a true benefit.

Encrypted Disk Recovery

If you have a password protected hard drive that has been damaged / corrupted / file deleted, don’t think you’ve lost the data on it forever. Recovering data from encrypted hard disks is super easy for this brilliant application. Just connect the drive to your Mac and launch the software. It will then ask you to enter the password to unlock the drive. Once you enter the password & unlock it, you can proceed to recover deleted, formatted and inaccessible files. But you should exercise caution to remember your drive password. If you fail to unlock the drive, you won’t be able to scan & recover deleted files from it.

 

RECOVERY PERFORMANCE

In the lost photo test, it recovered 100 percent of the photos. Don’t forget that 1% less recovery result amounts to 10Gb on a 1 TB harddisk, and this 10gb might just be your most precious photo’s or data.
It performs really well recovering lost data, basic scan is fast really fast ! Deep Scan takes a lot longer to complete.

If you’re recovering data on a 1TB HDD drive, the scan takes hours and the recovery as well. Then again, if THIS software will bring back your data, it is well worth spending time and effort in doing so.

Restores Around 120 File Types from any Media

It’s latest version 8 is really fast and scores well, only the file-building of Time Machine takes some time to present its folders. The overall interface and file management has improved a lot, and now is easy to use due to a guided interface. It is the best Mac Data Recovery application at this moment. Lots of ‘settings’ are available to the user in order to perform the recovery wanted. Even Encrypted volumes are no problem for Stellar Phoenix Data Recovery. All possible angles are covered with version 8.  The software’s additional data management features and extensive compatibility can help your most challenging recovery to be more successful. The latest High Sierra software needs to be prepared for recovery actions, as High Sierra’s System Integrity Protection (SIP) prevents for file access startup disk. We truly enjoyed working with this great application and recommend it to every Mac user. Stellar has taken a huge step in file-recovery solutions.

This version also has a full disk-repair build-in. All main disk errors can be handled from no booting disk to damaged directory or corrupt volumes. Repair and scanning for disk errors is easy and fast. These extra features prove a real bonus to an already great package.
