[prMac.com] Breckenridge, Colorado - Breckenridge, Colorado - Mac OS X File Recovery is pleased to announce Data Recovery Guru 1.4 for OS X, the latest Mac data recovery utility on the market and the only one to sport an easy-to-use, Finder-like user interface, is now available in the Mac App Store. The only data recovery app on the Mac App Store that features a demo mode, Data Recovery Guru is a Mac Data Recovery utility that allows users to preview which files can be recovered before deciding to purchase. This app takes the familiar, column-based window experience users employ when browsing files in the Finder, and it applies it to browsing deleted files. Eliminating a learning curve and any technical difficulty from using the app, this familiar interface allows users to start the app, click scan, and browse deleted files, as if the finder were still active.

While other data recovery apps on the Mac Store require users to purchase the app before use, Data Recovery Guru is different. Giving users the ability to try it before they buy it, this app allows users to preview which files can be recovered before deciding to purchase. As Mac data recovery may be affected by a number of circumstances, file recovery success can be a gamble. Data Recovery Guru removes the risk by providing a free demo mode that displays a list of the files that can be successfully recovered. Once the eligible files are presented, users may purchase the ability to recover deleted files as an in app purchase.
On nearly all device types including hard disks, digital cameras, and mobile phones, files remain intact even after deleted until written over by new data that is written to the device. For this reason, there is a very high chance of recovering lost data after having deleted the file, or even after having formatted the device. Since Data Recovery Guru is very small in size, it is a safe, first-step choice in any data recovery scenario. This small size is advantageous because many data recovery apps weigh in at tens or hundreds of megabytes, meaning that the mere act of downloading the data recovery app onto the drive in question runs a real risk of overwriting the data to be recovered.
Overall, Mac Data Recovery Guru has two priorities. The first priority is its ease of use. A simple, uncluttered, two-button interface allows for 2-step Mac data recovery and is as easy as using the Finder built into Mac OS X. The second focus is that the advanced application it produces outstanding results. Its scan will find deleted files (even on physically failing hard drives) that other apps miss. In addition, it can scan and recover files from an unprecedented number of different kinds of devices, including: Macintosh disks, Windows disks, Linux disks, Unix disks, digital cameras, mobile phones, USB drives, memory cards, CDs/DVDs, and more.
Data Recovery Guru does not force the user to wait until the disk scan is complete before they can recover a file. Users can browse through deleted files that are found during the scanning process, while the app continues to scan. Selected files appear as text or graphic previews, displaying the file's contents even before it is recovered. The larger the number of files on the disk, the longer the scan time. Data Recovery Guru features a thorough, high-speed scan, and allows users to recover their file the moment it appears in the scan window. Should additional files need to be recovered, hitting the "Recover" button does not interrupt the ongoing scan.
"With Data Recovery Guru, Mac data recovery is easy," stated CEO Ben Slaney of Mac OS X File Recovery. "The demo mode allows you to see what files are eligible for recovery, before deciding to buy."
