APFS, HFS+ Data Recovery Software from an Erased or Deleted Disks

Have you accidentally removed some files? Erased (formatted) a macOS disk or a volume (partition)? Are you looking for a utility to recover your data from MacBook, iMac, Mac Pro or Mac Mini? Would you like to recover files from an APFS, HFS+ disk or access these file systems in Windows?

APFS, HFS+ Data Recovery Software from an Erased or Deleted Disks
Hetman MACOS Recovery™ 1.5

This program recovers deleted data from any storage devices formatted in Apple macOS. It supports all versions of APFS and HFS+ file systems, and restores files deleted with the command ⌘Cmd + Delete, as well as files lost after cleaning the Trash Bin or removed without using the Bin, by merely pressing ⌥Option (Alt) + ⌘Cmd + Delete.

Accidental erasing or formatting a disk, USB pen drive or memory card doesn’t destroy the information permanently. Algorithms integrated into MACOS Recovery™ provide access to data lost after repartitioning the disk or reinstalling macOS. All you need is to connect the disk to a Windows computer, and the program will be able to access all files on the disk, both deleted and still existing. You can also install this program to a Boot Camp partition or Parallels virtual machine.

Quick Start

The program will analyze any devices with APFS and HFS+ file systems used by macOS Catalina, Mojave, Sierra, Capitan, Yosemite, Mavericks, Lion, Leopard, Tiger, Panther, etc.

It can recover any files removed, blocked or encrypted by certain kinds of viruses (ransomware): WannaCry, Petya, FileCoder, Filezip, Patcher, KeRanger, Gopher, Mabouia, FBI scam.
