Recover external storage drives
Which application should I use to recover external storage drives? Can you recommend some really effective programs?
I’ve used Data Rescue, by Prosoft, thought it was like 18 years ago on a G4 imac. If something mechanical in your drive bit it, software alone probably won’t fix it though. I’m definitely not an expert.
I do highly recommend disc cloning software, like Carbon Copy Cloner, and make multiple backups to separate drives. So much less hassle if you have a bootable clone with everything on it, on external drives, in case one dies or your computer melts. And keep one at a friend’s house, in case of worst case scenarios, like robbery or fire.
