Data Rescue II is data recovery software for recovering files from a problem hard drive or files that have been previously deleted. Data Rescue II works when other tools fail. It is also completely safe to use since it does not attempt any risky repairs to the drive while its scanning. A destination drive that you will recover your files to can be any mountable drive or network volume with suitable capacity to accommodate all your recovered data. Network functions are not available while booted from the Data Rescue Emergency Boot CD/DVD however.

Version 1.0 was released in 2005 as a PPC application. It became a Universal Binary in 2006 with version 1.1. Both 1.0 and 1.1 were optimised for Tiger but would run in Panther and Jaguar. The download here is v. 1.2.2 distributed on a Leopard-based DVD in 2009.

Download #1 contains a disc image of a bootable Emergency Install DVD containing Mac OS X 10.5.6 and v. 1.2.2 of the application.

Download #2 contains just the Data Rescue II software (v. 1.2.2).

If you find that the Emergency DVD is not bootable after you burn it using your favourite imaging & burning software, I suggest that you burn the DVD from the Finder instead (select the cdr image then choose Burn from the Finder File menu). I have tested that a bootable DVD can be obtained using the cdr disc image above.
