What is a DDSCAN file?

A DDSCAN file is a recovery session created by the macOS version of CleverFiles Disk Drill. It contains the results of a scan for lost data. Users can load DDSCAN files and use them to recover lost data recorded in the scan.

More Information

Disk Drill is a data recovery app that allows users to recover lost files from hard drives, flash drives, and SSD drives. To find lost files, Disk Drill scans a user's selected drives. It then shows the scan results and allows the user to restore any found files.

Every time a user performs a scan, Disk Drill saves that scan's results in a DDSCAN file. Users can also manually create DDSCAN files in the middle of a scan, by pausing the scan and selecting File → Save session as.... Users can load a DDSCAN file to review the associated scan's results or continue a paused scan.

NOTE: Disk Drill for Windows saves recovery sessions as .DDWSCAN files. The Mac version of Disk Drill cannot load recovery sessions created by the Windows version.

How to open a DDSCAN file

You can open a DDSCAN file with the macOS version of CleverFiles Disk Drill. To do so, select File → Open recovery session from the app's menu bar. Then, navigate to and open your DDSCAN file.

To resume a paused scan after loading a DDSCAN file, select the Continue button. Disk Drill will then resume the scan associated with your DDSCAN file.
