Introducing Data Rescue’s NEW BootWell™ Technology. BootWell™ allows you to create a special secondary startup drive that can be used to recover files from your main startup hard drive. While being booted into BootWell™ it allows you to unmount your internal hard drive and get into a booted environment so you can recover files from your main startup hard drive and avoid the added steps of creating your own bootable copy of Data Rescue.


Quick Scan

Utilizes existing directory info even if your Mac hard drive does not mount. This type of scan usually takes just a few minutes but can take longer in more severe cases. Quick Scan should be tried first in most cases.


Deep Scan

Utilizes the most advanced techniques to find every recoverable file on your Mac hard drive. This type of scan typically takes three minutes per gigabyte but can take longer in more severe data loss cases.

Will search your Mac hard drive for recently deleted files. Use this scan when your Mac hard drive is working properly but you accidentally deleted one or more Mac files.



Makes an exact copy of your Mac hard drive. The clone can then be scanned which helps improve recoverability. This function is used in the most severe cases where hardware problems may be present.



Is a powerful feature which enables Data Rescue 4 to learn new Mac file types. Simply drag sample files to the Data Rescue 4 drop-in bin and Data Rescue 4 will learn these new Mac file types.
