Upgraded search and recovery algorithm
Mac recovery specialist SubRosaSoft has updated its entire line of data recovery software, including FileSalvage, CameraSalvage and PodSalvage to version 7.5, now featuring improved search and recovery functions that improve the chances of recovering lost files. The company has also updated the packages to fully support Lion and additional foreign languages. SubRosaSoft offers a risk-free trial version to show if files are recoverable before buying.
The software can lead the user through a step-by-step recovery process for Macs, camera cards and iDevices that allows for file renaming reconstruction, recovers data from corrupted or mechanically faulty devices and can even find files embedded inside other files or packages. The company says the software never writes to the disk or device being read from, which prevents any further corruption that can hinder professional disk-recovery efforts if such drastic measures become necessary.
In the case of recovering files that have been accidentally deleted, the software searches only where known files are not already residing to speed the recovery process. The programs require OS X 10.7 or later and are now fully Lion compatible. PodSalvage and CameraSalvage are priced at $40, while FileSalvage sells for $80. Users of v7 of any of the products can upgrade to v7.5 at no charge by visiting the company's website.
