I spend around 10 hours every day working with information technology systems. I test them and I write about them. Because of this I’m extremely aware of the limitations many data recovery programs have inherent within them. One of these limitations is the need for an extremely high level of computer expertise in order to affect certain types of data recovery.
While I might have the ability to recover crashed hard drive files by using a version of Puppy Linux, I assure you the average computer owner does not. However there are programs for both Windows recovery and Mac recovery that allow even a novice computer tech to quickly and easily recover damaged, lost or deleted files from their computer. Remo Software makes an excellent suite of tools for data recovery. These tools include targeted programs for Windows and Mac recovery as well as special purpose utilities.
