Mac/Powerbook data recovery


Mac Recovery Services by Magic Data Recovery experts in recovery of Apple Macintosh hardware and Mac formatted volumes, this includes external hard disk recovery and recovery from USB Memory Sticks that are actively used on a Macintosh computer system.

Magic Data Recovery have a specialist department dedicated to Apple Macintosh support and data recovery, that can help in any data loss, data cleaning and data conversion situation.

The HFS and HFS+ file systems used by the Apple Macintosh to reference data stored on their hard drives are very different to the FAT and NTFS file systems used by Microsoft operating systems. Due to these differences, HFS & HFS+ data recovery methods and techniques follow a unique path that is quite different to that of Windows systems.

For these specific reasons, Magic Data Recovery has created specialist software enabling us to recover data from many Mac data loss situations. This software has been developed in house to address the complications of Macintosh data recovery.

  • Cannot access drive because a disk error occurred.
