What is TestDisk for Mac

TestDisk download contains TWO programs - TestDisk and PhotoRec. They are used on the command line in the Terminal. As a result, these programs are designed for support personnel and experienced Mac users.

The TestDisk program is powerful free data recovery software! It was primarily designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again when these symptoms are caused by faulty software, certain types of viruses or human error (such as accidentally deleting a Partition Table).

It will also find accidentally deleted partitions (either Apple Partitions, the newer EFI partitions and Windows MBR Partitons) and provide the necessary information for you to restore them using the Apple pdisk command (for Apple Partitions) or the gpt command for (for EFI partitions)

PhotoRec is file data recovery software designed to recover lost files including video, documents and archives from Hard Disks and CDRom and lost pictures (thus, its 'Photo Recovery' name) from digital camera memory. PhotoRec ignores the filesystem and goes after the underlying data, so it will still work even if your media's filesystem has been severely damaged or re-formatted.

PhotoRec can recover data from various filesystems including FAT, NTFS and HFS+.

I had to use TestDisk a long time ago, I don't remember exactly what was my issue — I think it was a damaged partition — and TestDisk was my last resort and it worked! So, now, I always have it installed on my computers, should I ever need it again. :-)

I'v used the windows version and it saved my as..Ssss. I had updated the HD firmware, the partition was gone and this utility brought back my files. I've used the browsing mode so I had my important files back in 5 min. No need to scan 5 hours in my case. It's command line based but menu driven so it's quite easy actually. I'v used the beta version 7.

Look, I'm in IT, and this is still too hard. It doesn't appear to actually check and fix a directory, only the partition map. I tried to create an image of my dead drive at /dev/disk2 onto the internal drive onto /dev/disk0s2 and it just has an obscure error: "Couldn't create file" or some rubbish. TELL ME WHY NOT
