In 1994 when Apple® launched its first computer, the landscape of computing changed forever. Apple® Macs are now widely used in music production, video creation and graphic design and, in many instances, the data stored on the hard drive can represent hundreds of hours of work. At Desert Data Recovery we understand the importance of your data and we will do everything possible to safely recover your critical files.

We have the capability to recover data from all kinds of Apple® file systems including legacy systems such as MFS, HFS, HFS+, HSFX and even XSAN. Our technicians work with all types of operating systems as detailed below, in addition to MAC formatted external hard drives.

Desert Data Recovery is the first call a Mac user should make in the event of a hard drive failure. We are often referred by Apple® stores throughout the valley to recover data before their experts work on fixing a physical issue with a Laptop, iMac or MacBook. Signs of a failing hard drive in a Mac system can include difficulty mounting the drive, displaying a grey envelope on the screen or an OS that freezes when you turn on your system. As Certified Data Recovery Experts we are here to help.

The data recovery process for a Mac hard drive is very similar to that of a Windows machine. While the operating systems may be different, the way we evaluate the drive for damage and recover the data is essentially the same. As a Professional Data Recovery Company, the work that we perform will not void the warranty.
