FileSalvage is an extremely powerful Macintosh application for exploring and recovering deleted files from a drive or volume. FileSalvage is designed to restore files that have:
been accidentally deleted.
become unreadable due to media faults.
been stored on a drive before it was re-initialized/formatted.
Use FileSalvage to recover your lost files, music libraries, iPhoto collections, and to rescue data that has been lost.

FileSalvage is device and file system independent, which means that the user can recover files from a normal Mac OS hard drive, USB key, PC disk, Linux disk, FAT32 disk, FLASH card, Digital Camera, iPod (non-iOS based), and almost any other media or file system that can be recognized in Mac OS X.
Quick Tip: Chance of Recovery
FileSalvage cannot recover deleted files that have been overwritten by new data. Having said this, due to the way in which data is distributed across file systems when being copied, there is often a decent chance that recently deleted files have not yet been overwritten, though there are no guarantees. FileSalvage is designed to recover files not repair them.
FileSalvage can currently recover over 100 file types, embedded and stand-alone (see Recovery File Types List). It will recover both computer files and RAW camera files, as it works on digital camera memory cards. In addition, FileSalvage is constantly being enhanced and updated with an increasing number of file types to salvage.

FileSalvage also supports the ability to process disk images. This means that defence attorneys, law enforcement and corporate agencies can now access Unix DD, Apple DMG, and CopyCatX image file systems without purchasing expensive computer forensics software.
With its advanced features and performance, the easy-to-use interface was designed with every level of OS X user in mind and is highly accessible to all, with the potential completion of the whole recovery process within just a few clicks.
Written specifically for Mac OS X, FileSalvage includes powerful features that give the user greater control and flexibility in analyzing and retrieving lost data:
Works anywhere - FileSalvage is device and file system independent. This means that the user can recover files from a hard drive, digital camera, USB key, PC disk, FLASH card, scratched CD, and most storage media that work with the Mac.
Recovers files after a disk or device has been formatted - Own an initialized disk or other device with files that you want back? No problem! So long as the drive was not securely initialized, FileSalvage should be able to recover the files from the drive.
Quick Tip: Secure Erase
FileSalvage will not be able to recover data that has been securely erased from a device or media, a process that involves overwriting the drive's data several times. Most operating systems only perform a "quick format" by default and so unless the user consciously performed a secure initialization the chances of recovery are high.
Recovers files from corrupt media - Data corruption does not stop FileSalvage from working. In fact it will happily process an entire corrupted file system for intact data and recover whole or partial files wherever it finds them.
FileSalvage works on faulty hardware - FileSalvage can also recover data from mechanically unsound devices. In addition to several tried and tested methods, SubRosaSoft has implemented additional improvements to read the same piece of information and to automatically skip of areas of the file system that are fully unreadable. By employing these methods, FileSalvage is able to recover data from sources that may have appeared to other software to be too physically broken to use.
Searches for deleted files only - On HFS+ volumes, the user can limit FileSalvage to scan only the free space of a volume to recover files from. This produces huge speed efficiency and means that the task of recovering files can be accomplished much quicker.
Preview - Allows the user to preview a range of available files before choosing to recover them. Using the underlying architecture of Mac OS X, FileSalvage can read and display audio, video, image, text, pdf, and other files.
Recover images - FileSalvage can analyze and recover files from most third party tool disk images such as standard ISO, EnCase® (when converted to dd image), UNIX dd, Drive Genius™, SubRosaSoft CopyCatX™, and SubRosaSoft MacForensicsLab™.
Simple interface - FileSalvage has a clean and simple user interface that makes it accessible and very easy to use, whether you are a beginner or an advanced user.
