When compared to Windows or Linux, deleting a file in macOS is a tough task. Even for simple delete, you’d need to press two keys and the file goes to Trash directly. However, accidentally emptying the Trash is quite a common mistake we all do. And, you know it, macOS doesn’t have an in-built option for file recovery. Same is the case when it comes to accidental formatting of USBs, data corruption in digital devices or even some damaged Hard Disk Drives.
Stellar Phoenix Mac Data Recovery 8, though, is all set to change that game. It is one of the best data recovery software we’ve seen so far; the version 8 packs some extra features too. We have been using Stellar Phoenix Mac Data Recovery for the past week, testing its full capabilities. And, here, we have a comprehensive review of the software. Looking for an effective tool that can bring back almost everything you accidentally deleted? You must read this review before making choices.
