Photos Recovery Guru

By FelixDev

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Photo Recovery Guru is a tool that allows you to recover deleted and lost photos and movies from your digital camera, mobile phone, disk, and most other devices.

It works to recover files that have been accidentally deleted, memory cards that have become corrupted, and even memory cards that have been reformatted.

It is well integrated with Mac OS X and will present you the list of your deleted files in an interface that is very similar that the Mac OS X Finder presents your regular files in, complete with thumbnail previews.

It is completely risk-free. It opens your device in read-only mode and will never write to it, and therefore if you have some critical data that you want to recover you can rest assured that the data will remain safely in the same state as when you started.

Some features:
⁃ Easy to use
⁃ Enhanced for Lion
⁃ Media rich and intuitive interface
⁃ Tolerant of physically faulty media
⁃ Content-based scanning to be filesystem independent
⁃ Search either for solely erased files, or for any file present on the device
⁃ Media type independent. Works on any device you can plug in to your computer that acts as a disk
⁃ Works on SSD drives
⁃ Enhanced Digital Camera support, including implementation of professional file formats
⁃ Enhanced Android phone support
⁃ Enhanced USB Key Drive support
⁃ Enhanced CD/DVD support
⁃ The most robust and consistent results you can get
⁃ Guaranteed results

Amazing App!!! Thank you!

I formatted a clients memory card before the photos were copied to the computer somehow. This was terrible and I really did not want to have to tell them that I lost their photos of their precious moments. After searching for data recovery I had tried two apps before this one, and none of them got the photos back. But I'm happy I did try this because it got all of the Nikon NEF photos that I needed of f a full SD card and it was fast! I would recommend this software to anyone.

Waste of time and money.

This program is not a good buy,

Shows existing files instead of just deleted files (there is a switch but it is reset to "Search for deleted and regular files" when scan starts.
Files are sbown in pseudo-folders (JPEG instead of DCIM) and with fake names (1.jpg, 2.jpg).
Scan takes too long (comparing to preview mode of other similar programs.
Application window is not done according to Finder style - useless top part duplicating current drive name.
Scrolling bar between file name and preview column shows blue artefacts between file names.
Cannot limit search to type of file (in my case, it was a video file.)
Cannot search for specific file name.

I have been robbed…...

I downloaded the demo to see if the program worked. It siad it found 500 or so canon images (.cr2) but didn't show any thumb nails. I closed the program and opted to purchase the item in the app store. After the I purchased the program it found 0 files. If you go to their support page its empty. So don't waste your money.
