Disk Doctors on Monday announced the release of Advanced Photo Recovery, a $US69 ($A89) utility for Mac OS X. A demo version is available for download.
The software has been developed to help recover accidentally deleted photos from iPods, memory cards and other digital storage media. It uses individual algorithms for each supported file type, making it more effective at restoring lost files. It supports BMP, PNG, TIF, TIFF, JPEG, JPEG and GIF image formats, and also supports the raw formats of cameras made by Canon, Nikon, Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, Pentax, Leica, Hasselblad, Minolta, Olympus, Kodak, Sigma and Fuji.
The software can also recover video and audio files. Supported video file recovery formats include AVI, MP4, MOV, MPEG, MPG, M4V, 3G2 and 3GP; supported audio formats include MP3, MP4, WAV, MIDI, M4B, M4A, AIFF, AIF and AIFC.
System requirements call for Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later and 4MB hard disk space.
