    "Data Rescue 4 works on any PC hard drive and can recover all file types! It is also the best Mac app for making bootable backups. Before I bought it, I was able to use a free demo version of Data Rescue. The demo helped me to see which files were recoverable before I purchased it. I was even able to make a scannable clone of my primary hard drive. This is a great purchase!"
