1. Wondershare Data Recovery for Mac
Wondershare Data Recovery for Mac will help users to recover lost data that is mistakenly deleted, emptied from recycled bin, lost during system formatting. Even so, the editor of CNET also published the evaluation of it.
Many file types can't be previewed through this app, and the trial version doesn't allow you to recover files. That makes it difficult to ascertain if the software has found the files you're actually looking for without purchasing the app and recovering everything a scan turns up.
As you see, Wondershare Data Recovery for Mac doesn’t like its descriptions, it can’t preview many file types. After I tried this data recovery for Mac, some deleted files were not listed at the preview interface, that means it couldn't help me recover all deleted files.
