Next time, install Data Rescue with 1-click

Use Data Rescue to recover:

  • crashed, corrupted or non-mounting hard drive
  • deleted, damaged, or lost files
  • reformatted or erased hard drive

One powerful new feature found in Data Rescue 4 is BootWell. Your Mac's main hard drive (sometimes referred to as the Main HD or Boot Drive) is where all of your computer files are stored. When there is a problem with this hard drive it can be very difficult, frustrating and time-consuming to get those files back. BootWell is an all-new feature that makes recovery of your main hard drive painless, fast, and easy.

What's New

Version 4.1:
  • Fixed launching on 10.7
  • The startup disk is always shown (except in BootWell) but disabled and with a message to indicate users need to use a BootWell drive to scan. This should avoid confusion with it not showing up at all.
  • When creating a BootWell drive, the "Data Rescue" partition gets reset so pre-existing data is destroyed
  • An alert is shown at startup more...


  • OS X 10.7 or later
