Data Rescue II, Prosoft Engineering’s data rescue and recovery program, was updated to version 3.0 on Tuesday. The new version, a 14.8 megabyte download, features the following fixes and changes:

- Data Rescue 3 runs on OS X 10.4.11 (Tiger) and later, including OS X 10.5.x (Leopard) and OS X 10.6.x (Snow Leopard)
- Data Rescue 3 sports a brand new Graphical User Interface, with animated visual effects.
- Many (over 100) new Reconstructed file types have been added for Deleted and Deep scans. See the last section of this file for a current list of supported types.
- A powerful new feature called FileIQ allows Data Rescue 3 to learn about new file types from user-supplied samples. This greatly extends the number of potential Reconstructed file types supported.
- A new File Previewer feature, which can preview many file types prior to recovery.
- The ability to suspend and resume scans, and to manage the results from multiple scans.
- Improved support for scanning Apple software RAID drives.
- Improved support for scanning large > 1TB drives.
- Improved support for recovering large sparse disk image files.
- Improved support for recovering pkzip files.
- Improved recovery of hard linked files.
- Added ability to unmount or eject a volume (useful when booted from DVD-ROM).
- Automatic check for updated Data Rescue 3 version.
- Improved features to assist if a call to Prosoft technical support becomes necessary.
- New Home Folder feature when booted from DVD; avoids the need to re-enter activation key each time it’s booted.
- Numerous bug fixes.

Data Rescue 3 requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later to install and run and retails for US$99.
