Version 2.0 is a major upgrade of the Disk Drill program. It is recommended that all users upgrade, as there have been major improvements to file signature recognition and recovery algorithms.

Since this is a major upgrade, there is a charge for upgrading from a previous paid version of PRO, Expert or Enterprise. Disk Drill Basic continues to be completely free.
