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 Mac Data Recovery 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 Mac Data Recovery:

1. The storage device is not physically damaged. If the storage device cannot be recognized by disk utility, it cannot be recognized by M3 Mac Data Recovery 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 Mac Data Recovery doesn't have the function to repair the corrupted files.

One of my external drives turned out to be uninitialized and corrupt, using APFS. After laborious searching I found m3 data recovery for mac, and luckily using the software I was able to find 100GB of lost material. Simply selected the problematic drive, scan, and let the software do the rest. Such a lifesaver.

During an upgrade to macOS Catalina, one of my external drives become unmountable, and with your Data Recovery for Mac I was able to read the files and restore them even with file dates, which another leading apps did not do. Thank you.
