Description: In addition to supporting data recovery for standard file types, R-Studio offers users the ability to recover files of lesser-used types, such as UNIX files and ext2f files. External media devices and RAID drives are also supported, and file backup tools are a standard part of the package. The program is also able to recover deleted files and files that have been damaged, even if the drive in question has already been formatted. You can also get back deleted information from a full range of Apple products and digital devices including iPods, digital cameras, USB drives, zip drives and firewire drives.
Review: No other product on the market supports the recovery of as many different file types as R-Studio, and for that reason alone, it merits close consideration as the most reliable way to recover files on a Mac. It is also able to recover files from an enormous range of peripheral devices, making it as versatile as it is powerful.
On the down side, this program is designed with the needs of advanced users in mind, so it may take quite a while for newbies to get the hang of it. It is also a little lacking in extras, as it doesn’t have a disk defragmenting or partition repair tool. Overall, though, this is an excellent and very comprehensive program that is well worth the money.
