Mac Data Recovery udpate
Stellar Information Systems has released Phoenix Mac Data Recovery 3.5, the latest version of its file recovery utility. The update offers a new bootable DVD that overrides the operating system, enabling access to data. Users can now recover 61 different file formats including content from MS Office, Entourage and QuickBooks, among others. Files can be recovered by name, creation date, time or sector number, with previews available for image, audio or video files.
The company claims the software is capable of recovering deleted, inaccessible or corrupt files from HFS, HFS+, HFSX, HFS Wrapper and FAT volumes. Internal hard drives, external drives, USB flash drives, iPods and memory cards are also supported.
Phoenix is now available to download for $130. Customers can also receive a boxed variant, including the application CD and boot DVD, for $20 more. Other licensing options are available for academic administrators or corporations.
