Data recovery is not a new topic to us, whenever we lost data, we need a professional data recovery software to get them back. Having been writing topics on data recovery for years, I came to know how those powerful data recovery tools contribute their best to lead in this field. While, iBeesoft is a black horse that ascends so fast in such a short time.
And today, we are going to give a iBeesoft Data Recovery review, telling if it really works for you.
It means the data recovery services (software) developed by iBeesoft to restore lost or deleted files.
iBeesoft comes to public in 2015, which is quite new when comparing with those data recovery developers showed their first appearance in early 2000. Its main products are data recovery tools, but it also offers tech solutions to back up or erase data easily.
While, iBeesoft Data Recovery includes 2 following tools:
In conclusion, iBeesoft Data Recovery offers both macOS and Windows data recovery programs to recover data from external/internal hard drive.
Yes, it is safe.
After downloading and installing, you will find the program is safe and clean to use, there is no bundled software or ads, except that you are redirected to its product page every time you run the program. Anyway, you are always recommended to download the installer from its official website.
The free trial version of iBeesoft Data Recovery allows users to scan all supported file types and preview, but not allowed to recover any one of the found files, you have to buy and input license code to recover the lost or deleted files found by iBeesoft.

The price of iBeesoft Data Recovery is on the 3rd tier with price at approx. $50, while the second tier is at approx. $80 and the first tier is at approx. $120.
It is designed to recover deleted or formatted files from both internal and external hard drive on Mac or Windows.
The main interface is quite clear and clean, guiding users to choose file types for scanning and making it extremely easy to start a data recovery process. And the neatness also extends into other interfaces, you will be able to easily find all information you need to restore your files.
iBeesoft Windows/Mac Data Recovery support virtually all file types.
When you run the scanning process for the first time, iBeesoft uses its quick scan mode. But after the first scanning, if you have not found the lost files, there is Deep Scan mode enabled for further scanning.
The scanning speed depends on how many file types you have chosen to start the scanning and what is the capacity of the hard drive you are going to scan. But it is much faster to scan several file types than that to scan all file types. Therefore, you are recommended to choose one file type for each scanning.
When comparing with other data recovery programs, iBeesoft’s speed lag behind, it takes longer time to finish a scanning. You may even run into a program crash when repeating the scanning for several times.
iBeesoft offers preview feature, helping users to viewing the files before recovery. However, users are only allowed to preview images and text files, other files including videos, PDF, Word cannot be previewed.
In my test, iBeesoft’s recovery rate doesn’t stand out from good-rating data recovery programs, but basing on its price and recovery features, it really works to recover lost, deleted or formatted files. Moreover, it shows the detailed information (file name, size, path and create date) to help users recover the wanted files.
Yes, for sure.
It does helps to recover deleted documents, photos, videos, audios or others from both internal and external hard drive on macOS or Windows, and most of the recovered files can be opened and viewed successfully. However, there is no data recovery tool guarantees a 100% successful recovery, so does iBeesoft.
If iBeesoft Data Recovery not working for you and cannot recover your lost files, you need an alternative to iBeesoft.
