Ontrack EasyRecovery Professional for Mac
Ontrack EasyRecovery Professional is a self-explanatory Mac OS X application that provides the required tools to protect and recover erased data.
User-friendly and easy-to-use data recovery tool for your Mac
You can use Ontrack EasyRecovery Professional to recover deleted or damaged files from formatted or corrupt disks with just a couple of mouse clicks. The intuitive interface along with the easy-to-follow built-in wizard enables you to quickly and effortlessly recover precious data.
The list of provided features include mail recovery, S.M.A.R.T. analysis, hex viewer, bad block identifier, disk image tools. It is worth mentioning that you should use a secondary storage device to store all recovered data. Also, you should not run Ontrack EasyRecovery Professional from the drive that you wish to recover.
By using Ontrack EasyRecovery Professional, you can also check your hard drive status, monitor its status and prevent unwanted data loss and disk failures.
Handy built-in wizard that guides you through all necessary data recovery steps
From Ontrack EasyRecovery Professional’s main window you can quickly start the built-in wizard and follow the step-by-step instructions in order to recover lost files. On top of that, Ontrack EasyRecovery Professional comes with a mail recovery application that promises to help you restore lost mails.
Unfortunately, Ontrack EasyRecovery Professional seems to be a ported app from Windows and, as a result, the offered Mail Viewer features support for email clients that are not available on Mac. In other words, the mail recovery feature is pretty much useless unless your use Mozilla Thunderbird or Eudora (cross-platform clients).
On top of that, Mail Viewer failed to scan for lost mails in the right folders and initiated a complete hard disk scan for mail data.
Practical Hex viewer and useful disk utilities that you can use to manage disk images
However, Ontrack EasyRecovery Professional provides a series of tools that the Ontrack EasyRecovery Home does not offer. If you need a hex viewer or you want to copy disks, create images, restore an image or refresh a disk image then Ontrack EasyRecovery Professional might be the app for you.
Keeping in mind that Mac OS X already offers a comprehensive suite of disk utilities and the fact that the mail recovery tool is not suitable for Mac users, we recommend the use of Ontrack EasyRecovery Home instead of Ontrack EasyRecovery Professional.
