I've tried many software before i found Mac Data Recovery Guru.
Many other software can recover photo, audio and video files and they do their job just fine but i've searched for some specific software to recover my work sessions. I'm a professional arranger and i've lost all my data in one minute due to WD driver's error described here:

http://community.wd.com/t5/News-Announcements/External-Drives-for-Mac-Experiencing-Data-Loss-with-Maverick-OS/m-p/613777#M379

I have to say, it was the only problem for ~4 years with this External HDD and i had no problems with it until Mavericks update.

All software i found was useless for my purposes. After some additional searches i found 2 apps with possibility of restoring .lso files from Logic Pro (and many others formats, of course). It was Mac Data Recovery Guru and one more app from iSkySoft.

I've tried both of them but iSkySoft's app did not find any .lso files, so it was useless for me, too.
And only Mac Data Recovery Guru found almost all of my working sessions. Of course, they did not have the right names but Logic Pro can open it and it's most important for me.
This software saved me a lot of time and money. Many thanks to Ben from app's support team. He helped me a lot, too.

I have to say, searching 2Tb RAID HDD connected to FireWire800 takes a lot of time (about 24 hours) and one feature which will be very helpful is saving and opening a list of scanned and found files (Disk Drill have this possibility, for example) because if you disconnect your HDD and then reconnect it again you need to search from beginning. I did not found this feature.

This software is highly recommended for pro-users who did not have a backup (you can find a list of supported formats on developer's page) and for all other users who needs to recover files from reformatted or deleted partitions and drives

I was interested in this, so I downloaded the demo. I launched it and selected the usb stick to scan from 'Drives'. When I clicked 'Start Scan', Data Recovery Guru asks for my admin password! (process system.privilege.admin)
What's that about?

Update: So I refused the admin access. Now I see that it has started scanning anyway; files are showing. So WHY was it asking for an admin password?

Thanks for the great question, Mitch. It prefers to have the password in order to set the privileges on the deleted files it recovers to their correct values.

Oh, and also under 10.8 admin access is necessary to access the posix nodes of even external devices. Crazy of OS X to do that, but there it is.

I'm guessing (and hoping for my own security sake) that doesn't work with "Secure empty trash" or "rm -p file" since the overwrite the data... right?

So far that's the case with my testing.

For the most part you are correct Zerafiall. There is one minor exception, but it's unlikely to affect you :-)

I recently installed a replacement hard drive on my MCP, restored from time machine and then was horrified TM had deleted back up editions from 4 months last year in order to incorporate a 355GB dump of the same restored volume. So stopped the process, after a few hundred MB and want to see if I can recover the erased but not over written time machine folders. Will this app help?

It will get back a large amount of individual files that you will be able to sort through and recover as you choose.

Give the demo a try, you can get it for free and preview which files are available to recover with that.

Mac Data Recovery Guru works by employing content-based file scanning. This is a different approach to traditional forms of data recovery which attempt to repair the device in question, which when they go wrong will write over the data you were trying to retrieve in the first place. Our method opens the device in read-only mode, and will search through the entire device for files, or pieces of files, that are present. It reassembles the data it finds into regular files on the fly. Sound complicated? It is, but after years of refinement it appears to the user as a seamless process, and is as easy as browsing through your regular files in the Finder. In fact, it looks almost the same if you look at the screenshots.
