Deep Scan of T2 and M1 Macs

As a comprehensive data recovery app, Disk Drill requires low-level access to storage devices. The macOS operating system gives such a privileged level of access only to the most trusted software, and Disk Drill is the only solution of its kind that can recover deleted data not only from external drives but also system disks connected to Macs with T2 and M1 chips.

Time Machine Backups and Snapshots

Permanently deleted files that have become overwritten by new data can still be recovered from existing backups, and Disk Drill makes this easier with its ability to parse Time Machine backup disks and scan local Time Machine snapshots.

Time Machine backup disks are external or network-attached storage devices where incremental backups of files are saved. Such disks are automatically detected by Disk Drill, and you can scan them with a simple click. Local Time Machine snapshots, on the other hand, are saved on the system drive when backup disks are not available, and Disk Drill processes by default.

Native Apple Silicon (M1) Compatibility

Since their introduction in November 2020, Macs with ARM-based M1 chips have become wildly popular among consumers thanks to their remarkable energy efficiency and performance. However, the new architecture breaks compatibility with apps designed exclusively for Intel-based Macs, forcing their users to rely on a dynamic binary translator called Rosetta 2.

The latest version of Disk Drill is fully optimized for both older Intel-based Macs and the latest Macs with M1 chips, allowing it always reliably and quickly retrieve lost data from any storage device that's compatible with macOS.

Disk Drill achieves the necessary level of access by deploying its own kernel extension (known as kext). The extension allows Disk Drill developers to load code directly into the macOS kernel, which is the core part of the operating system.

Free Disk Drill can scan and recover data from virtually any storage device --- including internal Macintosh hard drives, external hard drives, cameras, iPhones, iPads, iPods, Android devices, USB flash drives, Kindles, and memory cards.

In many cases, Disk Drill can read your device even if it is failing, unreadable, or has lost a partition. Combining several powerful scanning algorithms, Disk Drill provides a complete Mac data recovery solution.

Platform Independent

Disk Drill is powered by multiple data recovery algorithms that read NTFS, FAT32, EXT, HFS+ and many other file systems. Even obscure file types are accessible using our software.

Fixed & Mobile Storage

Recover your lost data on system disks and external devices, including all types of memory cards and USB drives. If you can connect it to your computer, Disk Drill can find your lost data.

Recover All File Formats

Recover any file or folder or reconstruct 200+ file types with multiple recovery methods.
