Do you know why you cannot use a Windows recovery tool for Mac recovery? Because, it will not work. I realize this may seem an obvious answer but it might surprise you to know that the vast majority of computer users are completely unaware as to the differences in their computer operating systems. These differences which include features such as systems for archiving files on a hard disk drive and information as basic as whether or not a microprocessor is compatible with the operating system are for the most part unknown to the average PC or Mac owner.
The Mac OS X operating system is no more sophisticated than the latest version of Windows. It is however completely different and as such requires applications for Mac recovery designed expressly for that use. Even photo recovery programs for use with Mac computers must be specifically designed for that purpose.
