Mac data recovery & APFS data recovery

Accidental deletion? Emptied files from Mac trash? Disk is not readable? External hard drive is not mounted? All these data loss scenarios can be solved with a data recovery software.

M3 Data Recovery for Mac is not only a Mac data recovery software, but also a (encrypted) APFS data recovery software. It provides a safe way to recover lost files from Macintosh HD, external hard drive, USB flash drive, SD card, etc.

Two preconditions using M3 Data Recovery for Mac:

1. The storage device is not physically damaged. If the storage device cannot be recognized by disk utility, it cannot be recognized by M3 Data Recovery for Mac either. In this situation, please send the failed device to a local data recovery professional for help.

2. The lost files have not been overwritten or corrupted. If the lost files have been overwritten, it is impossible to recover lost data. If the lost files have been corrupted, M3 Data Recovery for Mac doesn't have the function to repair the corrupted files.

THANK YOU!!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! We accidentally deleted the only files we had of our son's 3D ultrasound images. (Less than 1GB) All of the other recovery software programs out there wanted $50-$300 USD to recover the files and we just can't afford to pay that much! Thankfully, your system offers a free trial of up to 1GB and we were able to recover these precious images. Moved to tears and extremely grateful! Thank you so very, very much! If we EVER need larger file recovery, our choice will be crystal clear!

Accidently reformated an hfs disk with almost 2tb of video files. tried photorec first, which is free. it was able to recover the files but without filenames. i decided that the amount of time it would take to sort through and rename everything was worth the price of m3 data recovery. most files seem to be recovered intact.

Program is great. You should just let somebody know up front that to actually be able to recover things you've lost, you need to purchase the Licenesed Version. Would have saved me time and I wouldn't have to run another scan now to obtain those files.
