TestDisk for Mac OS has continued to be one of the most dominant open source software for the recovery of data. Not surprising, it is used extensively by many people.
The primary reason why this software was created is to help users recover partitions that have been lost. It has also been created for the purpose of restoring the bootable capabilities of disks especially when the disks have been damaged by software. The software that can do this is mainly malware or any kind of viruses. Sometimes damaging a disk is possible through the deletion of the partition table. If you use this software, you can successfully recover any kind of disk partition table as often as the need arises.
The software is worth using since it is quite simple and straight forward. It has an elegant user interface, which is quite easy to use since it is adapted to the needs of the user. Both novices and experts can use the software and still enjoy amazing results.
The software comes with a wide range of amazing features that make it one of the best tools for the recovery of data.
Most notably, it comes with capabilities that enable users to copy files from deleted partitions of the type FAT, ext2/ext3/ext4, FAT, NTFS, exFAT. You can use the software to collect information about a drive that is not booting properly (or at all)and use the information for further analysis.
Other important attributes of the software are; being capable of fixing the partition table and recover deleted partitions, being able to fix any kind of FAT tables, being able to rebuild NTFS boot sector, being able to recover FAT32 boot sector from its backup. You can also use the software to rebuild the FAT12/FAT16/FAT32 boot sector which has been damaged. It is also possible to fix MFT by means of the software’s MFT mirror tool. TestDisk can also be used to locate the Backup SuperBlock of the type ext2, ext3 and ext4.
An interesting issue about the software is the fact that it may be used on various operating platforms. Some of the most notable platforms that are compatible with the software are Windows 7, 8 and 10. Even earlier windows versions such as Vista and XP are supported by the software. The Linux platform and MacOS X are also supported by the software.
