FileSalvage is an extremely powerful data recovery tool designed to restore files that have been accidentally deleted, have become unreadable due to media faults, or were stored on a drive before it was re-initialized or formatted. It is device and file system independent, allowing the users to recover files from a normal Mac OS hard drive, USB key, Linux disk, Windows drive, FLASH card, scratched CD, and almost any other media or file system that can be recognized in Mac OS X.
FileSalvage is extremely straightforward. The new user interface allows data recovery to be accomplished with just a few clicks. A user can opt to undelete files that were trashed accidentally, salvage all the files from a device that may or may not be able to mount, or switch to an expert mode for greater flexibility to scan and recover the exact files he or she desires.
One of the biggest developments since the release of Mac OS X, the Intel based Mac provides an astonishing level of performance. Running on Intel Macs, the latest version of FileSalvage is optimized to take advantage of the blazing speed, making scanning and recovering files much faster than on Power PC based machines. In addition to the Intel Mac optimization, free space scanning, a recovery feature that was only available before when running on Power PC based Mac, is now supported on Intel based Mac. The feature will focus the recovery on the free space areas of the drive, vastly cutting down the disk space and the time required for the task.
