All File Types are selected by default. If you only want to recover one or two or three etc file types of files, please select them on the interface.

Do Your Data Recovery for Mac Professional provides two recovery modes for Mac data recovery. We strongly recommend that you try 'Quick Recovery ' mode at first because it takes only minutes – very quick.

Quick Recovery – It is the fastest method to detect and scan your Mac or storage device. 'Quick Recovery' often finds deleted or recently lost files within a few minutes. It is recommended to try this recovery mode first in most cases. If 'Quick Recovery' can't find what you want, please click 'Advanced Recovery' to deeply scan your drive.
Advanced Recovery – This recovery mode will deeply scan your Mac drive or device with advanced scanning technology to find every recoverable file. It performs sector-by-sector scanning, so it will takes more time and find much more lost files.

Step 2: Select the drive or device where you lost files

Select the drive or device where you lost your files to start scanning. You can recover lost files from local/external Mac hard drive, as well as retrieve lost files from SD card, USB drive, digital camera, memory card or other storage media. You can even recover lost files from deleted/lost Mac volumes.

scan your device

Note: The new APFS file system (macOS 10.13 or later macOS) does not allow any app to directly scan the system hard drive (where the macOS is installed). If you want to recover system hard drive (such as MacHD, Apple SSD) in APFS, you need to disable System Integrity Protection (SIP). Just follow this guide: disable SIP and recover lost data from system hard drive in macOS 10.13 or later >>

Step 3: Preview the files and recover them

You can preview the files to check their quality before recovery. Then recover what you want and save them on your computer or storage device. Please don't save the found files on the disk where you lost your data, in case you overwrite the original data.

2. During the scanning, you can pause and stop the process.
3. You can export/save the scanning results for later or next recovery.
