Data Rescue 3.2

by Marco Tabini

Prosoft Engineering has released Data Rescue 3.2 [1], a significant update to its data recovery software for Mac OS X. The new release includes support for recovering files produced by several new Mac applications, including Microsoft Office 2011, AutoCAD 2010/2011, OpenOffice, QuickBooks 2006 through 2011, and iWork ’05 through ’08. The update can also now find lost AppleScripts, encrypted sparse disk images, Java archives, X3F and MRW raw images, and many more [2]. Other improvements include folder-specific searches, warnings of possible drive failure, new HTML help, improved search performance, and more; see the release notes [3] for a full list. A free trial version [4] of the software can scan for lost files but can only recover a single file of less than 10 MB of size. ($99 new, free update, 13.2 MB)
