Product Announcements – Independent developer Mac OS X File Recovery of Auckland, New Zealand has released File Extractor 1.0, their new file extraction utility for macOS computers. The app offers users the ability to extract files embedded inside other files, such as PDFs, DMG disk images, and many other files formats. File Extractor can recover over 100 different file formats.
File Extractor can extract text files, graphics images, individual files, and other types of files embedded in any blob of data. Once the files have been scanned, users can select the files they’d like to recover with just a few clicks of their mouse. The app uses state-of-the-art algorithms to extract data, even from third-party formats that might otherwise be inaccessible.
“File Extractor is the result of five years of development, which resulted in bulk data recovery software that was purchased and used by the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI),” says Mac OS X File Recovery CEO Ben Slaney. “While there are competitors on the market, they are slower, and their results are nowhere near as robust.”
The app is an excellent utility for use when the need arises to extract data from files, browser caches, DMG disk images, and other data sources. Users will find File Extractor especially helpful when attempting to extract files from those pesky third-party file formats.
File Extractor uses state-of-the-art algorithms designed to extract data from any type of file. Users will be surprised at the quantity, quality, and types of data the app will extract from source files. All extracted text is saved as “Raw Text (Plain)” files, meaning they can be read in any plain text editor, like the macOS TextEdit app.
Deleted files can be recovered from disk images created using Disk Utility, as the app can scan deleted files from the disk image. The feature can also be used with SD cards, hard drives, and other media types. (On .DMG files created from a digital camera’s memory card (using Disk Utility) users can recover deleted files from their camera or recover files if the card becomes corrupted.)
File Extractor can scan:
- PDF files (extracts both text and images)
- Graphics images (it can extract separate images contained in them (such as PSD files))
- Disk images (with the .dmg extension) to recover deleted files
- Any large complex filetype. For example, JPG files embedded in Photoshop documents
- Browser caches. Users can view the files they contain using File Extractor
- Corrupted documents for information that can be salvaged
“I believe users will be amazed at the files they can extract and recover by using File Extractor,” continues Ben. “The app is the ultimate file extraction utility, easily outperforming any of the competitors available for the macOS operating system on the market today. I can’t wait to hear how our users take advantage of its power!”
