Backups are vitally important, but they aren’t perfect. Multiple drives can fail in a short period of time, software can bug out, and mistakes happen. And if you accidentally delete something on your camera’s SD card, you’ll definitely want a way to get those photos back. As such, it’s worth picking up Prosoft Data Rescue to have at the ready.
• Prosoft Data Rescue for Windows for $99
• Prosoft Data Rescue Professional for Windows and macOS for $299 for your first year
Regardless of whether the data is on an SSD, an external hard drive, or a memory card, you can use Data Rescue to search out your lost files. Run a new scan, narrow down the search to what you need restored, and recover them on the double. Worried about your drive outright failing? The solution is simple: Clone your current drive, and do the restoration on a more trustworthy drive.
Over at our sister site PCMag, Edward Mendelson reviewed Prosoft Data Rescue for Windows, and awarded it a Good Editors’ Rating. While he found the UI complex, Mendelson called out the speed of the scans as a highlight. And since it ranks among the very best at data recovery, keeping Data Rescue around for an emergency is a smart move.
And if you work in the IT field, want to pick up the Professional version instead. While it’s pricier, it has the benefit of both macOS and Windows support, RAID support, and no limit to the number of hard drives.
