    Recover external storage drives

Which application should I use to recover external storage drives? Can you recommend some really effective programs?

    Recover external storage drives

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.
