[prMac.com] Auckland, New Zealand - Mac OS X File Recovery today is proud to announce the release of Mac Data Recovery Guru 4.0, the important update to its data recovery utility for macOS. Mac Data Recovery Guru offers the ability to recover all common file types that have been deleted from any kind of drive or volume, including files that were lost due to accidental deleting or formatting, hardware malfunction, or any other case of data loss where the original data was not overwritten.
Using Mac Data Recovery Guru to recover lost data is simplicity itself. Anyone can simply run the application, and then select the drive or volume they wish to scan for lost files, specifying whether to scan for deleted files only, or for both deleted and regular files. Users have no need to fear any further data loss, as Mac Data Recovery Guru prevents accidentally writing over any deleted data by accessing the drive in read-only mode.
During the scanning process, Mac Data Recovery Guru handily lists the files it has found that can be recovered, by displaying them in a familiar column-based window, macOS Finder-style window. Once the scan is complete, users can click the files they wish to recover, and then select a drive and folder location where they want the recovered files to be saved to. The user then clicks the "Recover" button, and waits for Mac Data Recovery Guru to do its job. Following recovery, users can then view the recovered files in their favorite file viewer or editor, as usual.
"Mac Data Recovery Guru has always been one of the most powerful, and easy to use data recovery utilities available for the Mac," says Ben Slaney, CEO of Mac OS X File Recovery. "With version 4.0 of the app, we've also added the ability to scan used disk space as well as unused space. Plus, it can scan disk images of drives that can't mount for recovery, and much more!"
What's New in Version 4.0:
* The ability to scan used space, (files), as well as unused space
* Scan disk images that can't mount for file recovery
* Scan disk images of anything else that won't mount, like cameras, SD-cards, and more
* Remove DRM from some types of iTunes music files
* Recover thumbnails from deleted (and erased) photos in the Mac Photos app
* Recover all data from browser histories
Mac Data Recovery Guru can scan any storage device on Mac, including those that are not visible, even the Mac Recovery Drive. The app's ability to detect and scan devices and volumes that are not normally accessible to the average user means Mac Data Recovery Guru offers almost unlimited options for recovering deleted files.

"What many users may not realize is that the HFS file system used by macOS doesn't immediately remove deleted files from the hard drive, the "deleted" file is merely marked as deleted, but is only overwritten by another file when that drive space is needed," shares Ben. "However, some data recovery utilities are so large in size, installing them might actually overwrite the very files a user wishes to recover! However, Mac Data Recovery Guru's small disk footprint reduces the chance of its installation possibly overwriting any recoverable files."
