  1. Disk Drill is a well known file recovery utility for Windows and macOS. As with most data recovery software, Disk Drill scans your storage (including external drives and even mobile devices) to retrieve and later reconstruct lost files. But perhaps most importantly, Disk Drill often gets high marks from users and testers due to its numerous capabilities, support for many different file systems, file signature support and great filtering tools, so you can retrieve just what you need when time comes.

    The Giveaway

    Cleverfiles, the developer of Disk Drill, has offered to giveaway 50 licenses of Disk Drill Pro to TechSpot readers. So here's your chance to get a license of their fully featured and well regarded data recovery software.

    Disk Drill has a free version that gets you many of the program's capabilities with a cap of 500 MB. Of course, the Pro version ($89 value) removes that limitation, includes support for 1 user on up to 3 computers, and standard features like quick & deep scan, partition search, all file systems (FAT32, NTFS, exFAT, EXT3/4 etc.) and file reconstruction for 300+ file formats.

    There are plenty of other features that we won't cover here but are part of Disk Drill (the macOS version has more features), you can check them out here.

    The giveaway will be open for just one week, consisting of the following:

    How to Win

    • First, post a short comment in this story to confirm you want in the drawing.
    • Second, keep posting in news and forum comments during the course of the following week.

    We'll be monitoring all comments for the most insightful, funny, or otherwise interesting posts. The best comments will get a license. If you get liked by one of our staff members or en masse by fellow readers, that's a good sign. That's it. The giveaway is open until next Wednesday, February 21. Winners will be notified via email after the contest is over.

    First responders will get to choose which version of the software they prefer, first come, first serve. Good luck!

    Ah very cool, love to see a new giveaway on the site. I've been using Zero Assumption Recovery for a very long time (over 10 years?), but it would behoove me to consider trying new software (in a full capacity). Heck, I even have a drive already that I could run through it.

    So count me in for being interested in a Windows copy. :)

    I'm in! I would rather for it to be random more than comment oriented, because this means there are no standardized metrics over what is considered funny and by whom. I've seen some really bad posts get a lot of attention only because they beat on the popular... :p

    Hmm, wonder if this would recover my 4Tb porn stash. It'd have to be able to drill deep, long and hard into that disk over and over to bring some joy. Send me a copy!

    BTW: macOS High Sierra (version 10.13) is now exclusively using AFS
    Apple File System
    Apple File System (APFS) replaces HFS Plus as the default file system in macOS.[5] It supports 64‑bit inode numbers, is designed for flash memory, and is designed to speed up common tasks like duplicating a file and finding the size of a folder’s contents. It also has built‑in encryption, crash‑safe protections, and simplified data backup on the go.[10]

    Tis might be a little overkill, but I'd like a copy of Disk Drill for real. Though my battle may be uphill, its better than suffering on the treadmill. Don't let my comment be a sleeping pill, I hope to use this software to some skill. Now please fulfill with your goodwill while I chill and stand still saving my hundred dollar bill waiting for a license of Disk Drill.
