FileAngel Lite

By FelixDev

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


FileAngel Lite is the easiest to use Mac Data Recovery Software available. It can undelete files from any kind of media that you can connect to your Mac, from phones to cameras to hard drives. It's fully functional on internal & external drives, and is fully 10.8 compatible if you purchase the App Store version - because that makes the website version automatically registered with no further steps required! All you have to do is download it from the website and boom - it just works.

It recovers files from the trash after it's been emptied, and files from formatted, corrupted, or unmountable disks. You'll be surprised at what it'll find.

In the same way you browse through your regular files using the Finder, FileAngel will scan your disks for permanently deleted files and allow you to view them in a media rich file browser window.

It works on virtually any kind of media, from standard Macintosh disks, to disks from other operating systems that are unreadable in OS X. It is also designed to withstand physical faults on the media it is used on, allowing it to skip over unreadable parts (whether it's a hard drive with the infamous click of death, a scratched CD, or a USB pen drive with bad blocks).

Most people find the results remarkable. Bringing back hundreds of thousands of files on a big disk, and bringing back memories from years ago.

With a copy of this at hand you are guaranteed to run into people that have accidentally deleted files off their digital cameras and memory sticks and such, and will be able to help them out. From the experience of this company, the amount of relief and surprise you will see in the people you help is overwhelming.

• Enhanced for Lion
• Media rich interface
• Tolerant of physically faulty media
• Content-based scanning to be media type independent

Customer Reviews

You are really Angel !

I bought one of this file hiding app 1-2 weeks ago and I hid some of my important files. Then I got software update. After that, I wanted to get to my files again but they were not there any more. I couldn't find them any more. I was so scared; they were my mother's pictures and my 2 years of work. It was all gone. Then I found this app, and I downloaded right away. As the developer says there, I went to the app's website and downloaded the full version of it. It was middle of the night and I needed registration; some how it didn't register itself. I communicated with developer middle of the night and he got back to me; in an hour I was good to go. I tested and saw all the previous files were coming back one by one. Knowing this I slept better and the next day I recovered my other files. The money is well worth for this app. This app saved my precious files. You are really Angel ! Thank you sooo much...

Not so useful

I was about to write a scathing review of what a rip off this program because you can't recover files from the hard dive. Then I read some of the other comments. Here's what you have to do to make this program work: After you download the app you need to go to their website to download it again. It won't cost you anything to do that. The app you get here only works on external drives.

The trouble with using it on your internal hard drive is that it's hard to figure out what's what when you download the thousands of deleted files you have pieces of on your hard disk. I couldn't tell what most of them were. My list didn't look anything like what the website shows. Instead of things like Microsoft files, it had hundreds of Samsung Raw files. What the heck is that?

This App DOESN

This is an absolute waste of time and money. Of all the recover data apps I read, I selected to purchase this FileAngel. After purchasing and downloading the app, it did not do a thing, such as detect my hard drive or external drive. I searched for a phone number to get help, but found none. I left several messages on the app website. It is now 5 days since my purchase and I have received NO response!
Lesson I've learned is to pay attention to the dates reviews were written. If there are no recent reviews, move on. The last review since mine was over a year ago. I wouldn't be surprised if this company no longer existed.
