Question: Can you recommend an affordable data recovery program for my Mac?
Answer: Before you spend any money on data recovery software, make sure you find a program that lets you run a FREE scan on your computer and shows you the files it will be able to recover.
If it can see the files (and show them to you in a preview window), it will be able to recover them and you'll be safe purchasing it.
Remo Recover works on Macs and does just that - let's you run a scan and see for yourself what can be recovered.
Remo recovers deleted files from Mac OS Extended partitions / volumes and has the ability to choose and recover lost files using a signature search (extremely useful when your Mac hard drive has severe damage and recovery of files is not possible through standard undelete functions).

Remo also works on Windows, and here are the links you'll need:
