Disk Drill is a unique data recovery tool that has been developed for purposes of enabling users to migrate to advanced ways of recovering files that have been deleted accidentally or even purposefully. The tool is able to recover lost files in part or in full in a few clicks.

Disk Drill comes with an amazing user interface and an easy to use platform. Within a few clicks, you can recover a wide pool of files. You can use the tool to recover as many files as you want and as often as you want. Major examples of files that you can recover using the tool are images, videos, audios and documents.

The software has for quite some time proven to be a reliable tool for the recovery of files of various kinds on a number of operating platforms. It is available on windows, android and MAC OS. The features for the software on all the platforms that it is compatible with are the same.

The software is actually free. You do not need to pay anything to be able to download it to your device. But, it has both a free version and a paid version. You can upgrade to the paid version (usually labelled as pro) if you want to gain access to the full features of the software.

The software also has additional features which are not related to data recovery. This is actually what makes it different from other data recovery tools. Most importantly, it comes with the backup feature which enables users to back up their files as soon as they have recovered them. This feature is also available on all the app platforms and is also free.

There is more to the Disk Drill than just data recovery and data backup. For example, it comes with duplicate finder, which is a feature incorporated into the app for purposes of locating duplicate files and getting rid of them. There is also the recovery drive feature which enables users to create their own bootable USB drives for the app.

Other additional features of the app that are worth mentioning are Disk Health, Mac Cleanup and the duplicate finder. These are necessary for the continued monitoring of the health of the disk by checking for irregularities on the disk, locating duplicate files, freeing up disk space as often as the need arises and removing them respectively.
