iBoySoft Mac data recovery review from

iBoySoft Mac data recovery was recommended by last year. To let you know the recent situation of iBoySoft, I tested the latest version of this program and give you my personal opinion, with the pros, cons and something you may not know.

About iBoySoft

iBoySoft is a company for developing software on computer data management and data security. Since being founded in 2017, this company continually released computer-based programs including Data Recovery Kits, File Protector, Drive Manager and NTFS for Mac.

In spite of only 3 years of history, this company is trustworthy on the whole since most of its programs got recommended by well-known tech websites like  I installed its NTFS for Mac before  and this software worked well to solve my problem of writing documents and files into Microsoft Drive.

My Personal Opinion on iBoySoft Mac Data Recovery

iBoySoft Data Recovery for Mac is one cost-effective and easy to use solution for people who are seeking methods to get back lost or deleted files. It is safe without viruses and it does give people a chance to recover lost photos, documents, and other kinds of files from the computer or the external drives mounted to your computer.

What I Like

1. Easy to Use Interface

It clearly shows the drive it is scanning, it puts the files and information into the right categories, and it provides you with a Search Bar so that you can quickly get the pieces you lost. This user-friendly design is great for people who don’t know much about tech knowledge.

2. Recover Up to 1GB for Free and Relatively Cheap Price

iBoySoft is not guaranteed a 100% success rate for data recovery but gives a trial edition to recover up to 1GB data for free. Besides, it has a relatively cheap price comparing to other brands. This saves your money if you want to upgrade for a pro for deep scanning.

3. Support Latest macOS Catalina

This program runs well on my MacBook Pro which I recently update to macOS Catalina. I also tested it in macOS Sierra (Version 10.12.2). Both worked well to scan my deleted files.

4. It’s Safe, Without Viruses and Without Ads.

We know that the freeware is always inserted with ads or viruses. Well, this mac data recovery is safe and clean. The whole process is without ads showing up. And I used antivirus software to scan the installer before starting the test, and the result shows this software is 100% clean.

In the end, it’s easy to uninstall this program from my Mac after the testing.

What I Don’t Like

1. Take Too Much Time to Scan

It takes me over 30 minutes to have a deep scan for my MacBook Air which has stored about 110G documents and files.  It could take much longer if you want to scan a larger storage computer, it may be several hours.

2. Few Deleted Files Founded

Not all files that you emptied from Mac Trash can be retrieved back using this program. Before testing iBoySoft mac data recovery, I emptied my trash bin to see whether this software could get back those permanently deleted data. But after a deep scan, there is only one file getting back.


iBoySoft doesn’t guarantee a 100% success rate for data recovery.  But it is easy to use and has the ability to get the files mistaken-deleted or deeply-hidden in your Mac startup disk. It worth trying because you can use the free edition to scan first and then choose whether to buy the pro. And last, this company offers a reasonable refund policy.

All the words in this post are my personal opinion. If you have any ideas, don’t hesitate to comment on the bottom.
