[prMac.com] Breckenridge, Colorado - Mac OS X File Recovery has announced Mac Data Recovery Guru 2.0 for OS X, an update to its Mac data recovery utility, which recovers all common file types from any kind of device, due to user error, accidental formatting, hardware malfunction, or any other cause of data loss that does not involve overwriting the original file. Sporting an easy-to-use, Finder-like user interface, it is now available in the Mac App Store or directly from the publisher. The innovative application features a demo mode 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 many other data recovery apps on the Mac Store require users to purchase the app before use, Mac 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. Mac 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. 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 Mac 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 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.
*Disks: Macintosh disks (HFS filesystems, HFS+, HFSX filesystems); Windows disks (NTFS, FAT filesystems); Linux disks (Ext2, Ext3, Ext4 filesystems); and Unix disks (XFS, UFS filesystems)
* Digital Cameras: Kodak, Minolta, Nikon, Canon, Fuji, Olympus, and Sigma
* Mobile Phones: Android, Nokia, Motorola, Palm, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Samsung, Sanyo, Siemens, Sony Ericsson, Panasonic, Kyocera, and Blackberry
* Miscellaneous devices: USB pen/thumb drives, Memory Cards for cameras and portable devices, CDís/DVDís, MP3 Players, PlayStations, X-Boxes, Wiiís, and Palm devices
Mac 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. Mac 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 Mac 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."
