OPTIONS FOR REPAIR

Screen Shot 2016-07-26 at 10.05.45 AM

PhoneRescue presents all possible recovery methods, known by the editor. The user is presented with an overview and guidelines regarding your phones problem. Just read all given failure descriptions and pick your recovery option. Without the guidelines you would be unable to make the right choices. So, big plus for the program layout and clear statements.

If your phone can’t connect to PhotoRescue the hardware of your phone will be too damaged in some way. So best way is to try out and download the free version and see if the phone will make connection with PhoneRescue.

The recover options from an existing backup wether its a iTunes, iCloud or the device itself are common and work without any problems. The IOS Repair Tools however are most interesting to me
as they do the most diffycult task of all.

IOS REPAIR TOOLS

This scenario wants you to connect your phone to your computer and follow the steps presented. It is best if you first read https://www.imobie.com/guide/phonerescue/ios-repairing-tools.htm and
understand the procedure to follow. This procedure works well, and restores your phone to a factory default state. So all your info will be lost, but you endup with a working phone again.

VERDICT

PhoneRescue is the swiss army knife for repairing your phone or recovering of your lost data. It looks great with a clean interface and does what it claims to do. I am particularly impressed with the detailed problem descriptions and  ‘ How To ‘, repairing or recovering your device. It makes it usable for all users, which is a big plus.
If you’re desperate and almost want to give up on your phone, get this tool to sort things out for you. Mind you, do use the try-out version first in order to see if your phone will connect anyway.

VERDICT

ArtText 3 is a fast improvement over version 2.5. If you are a regular user an upgrade is what you should get. Create your own labels,buttons or letterhead and stand out from the crowd.
Personalize your website, reports and essays. The choice is all yours. ArtText 3 provides lots of shapes and art settings. It can do more than most users will use, the professional however
may take it to its limits and be pleased with the result. I think there is no real competition in the market. I gladly rate it 5 stars, as it put a smile on my face and say

Developer Charlie Monroe Software

INSTALLATION & SETUP

This little but great utility has little setup preferences. Just place it in your applications folder, adjust your desired quality settings in the preferences Presets and you’re done.
It is a Media Converter with a beautiful drag and drop interface.

Beautiful drag & drop interface, designed for Apple.

Schermafbeelding 2016-04-24 om 20.44.29 Schermafbeelding 2016-04-24 om 20.47.21

 

This is your drag & drop interface. After dropping your file the conversion interface opens, now set your new extension and the file or files are blazingly fast converted.
You may drag multiple files and file types in one go. A huge list of video conversions is available and all conversions can be set to your personal choice of quality.

It really works simple and easy, not much to say about really. There are no real setbacks, no discomfort in any way. It just does the job blazing fast.

VERDICT

I strongly recommend this utlitilty for its beautiful interface and performance.
Of course more specialized software programs offer more options and settings,but for most common jobs wether it is Audio, Video or Pictures this works great.

A nice conversion utility and a small price completes a great deal.

MAC PRODUCT KEY FINDER PRO

MAC PRODUCT KEY FINDER is a truly small utility for detecting and storing your product keys. Like saving our data, we need to save our software keys in a save environment.

INSTALLATION & SETUP

Setup is not required. Just install the utility in your applications and run the utility.

Mac Product Key Finder - Professional

MAC PRODUCT KEY FINDER detection

This utility only finds pre-programmed applications ! In my case it detected only 9 out of 33 installed software keys.
Mind you, it only finds serials from their 375 covered programs list and NO serials from programs bought on the Apple Store as they do not carry any serial.
So check their list on the website and see if your programs show on the list. If it doesn’t , it won’t find your serial. Simple as that.

VERDICT

The utility does work extremely fast and detects supported keys as it is supposed to do, however it only finds what it is able to find.
Check their supported programs list before buying and see if it fits your needs. If it does, the utility will blazing fast show you what you were looking for.

DATA RECOVERING

No matter what type of storage device you’ve lost data from, if you can normally connect it to your Mac and view the contents, Disk Drill can scan it.
Disk Drill 2 can help if you have:

RECOVERY

File systems that Disk Drill can scan include:

HFS & HFS+
FAT/FAT32/exFAT
NTFS
EXT3/EXT4
The Deep Scan method ( PRO VERSION ) works on ANY file system – and even on volumes with a missing or corrupted file system.

File types that can be recovered:

Photo files like JPG, PNG and TIFF
Graphic files like AI, PSD and INDD
RAW camera files like CR2, NEF and DNG
Video files like AVI, DV and MP4
Music files like AIF, MP3 and WAV
Document files like DOCX, PPTX and XLSX

INSTALLATION

Disk Drill 2 is easy to install, and after completion presents an overview of the stored / connected storage devices.

There are options presented for RECOVERY and EXTRA’s:

DEEP SCAN

Running Deep Scan takes some time ! Deep Scan method can be used in any situation — on any volume with any file system.

RECOVERY 

How does Disk Drill 2 work ?
When Recovery Vault is enabled to protect a particular drive or partition, Disk Drill uses a special background service to monitor that drive or partition for changes. When a file is deleted, Disk Drill remembers the metadata for the file.

Schermafbeelding 2016-04-04 om 19.57.25

After the Deep Scan finishes, you just click the GREEN Recovery-Button and job done !

 

Rebuild, Rescue and Remount
If you have a failing drive, lost partition, or need to prevent precious data from being overwritten during the scan process, Disk Drill has several innovative ways to maximize your data recovery:

Backup Into DMG Image – Backs up an entire hard drive or partition from a failing drive onto a new drive as a DMG file
Remount Volume as Read Only – Protects a non-system volume during a scan so that your data isn’t overwritten by OSX or another app
Universal Partition Search – Recovers partitions on HFS+, FAT and NTFS volumes and creates a virtual partition for any ones that are found
Scan for Lost HFS+ Partition – Finds and rebuilds HFS+ partitions on your Mac that have been reformatted
Rebuild HFS+ Catalog File – Rebuilds the catalog of HFS+ partitions that won’t mount correctly

Can you Recover Data If TRIM Is Enabled On My SSD Drive?

Unfortunately, the answer is no. The TRIM function on an SSD (solid state drive) effectively nulls out the space where deleted files were stored, making the data completely unrecoverable, even by Disk Drill.

VERDICT

Disk Drill 2 is like the Swiss Army knife for Data Recovery. Works well and supports nearly all file systems and file types. A firm recommendation to anyone looking for Data Recovery software for MAC.

 

Scan and Preview Files for Free
The best thing about Disk Drill is that you don’t have to buy anything until you are sure that your data can be recovered. You can scan your drive and preview your files with Disk Drill Basic. Once you are sure that your files can be recovered, you can quickly upgrade to Disk Drill PRO. And if you install Disk Drill Basic before you lose any data, several of Disk Drill’s data protection features allow for free data recovery on your Mac!
