Thanks for asking your question with Experts Exchange.

Some of the more widely used data recovery applications for Mac users
are:

File Salvage v7.0
Boomerang Data Recovery v2.1.1 Software for MacOS X
VirtualLab for Mac OS X
Data Rescue 3
Phoenix Stellar Data Recovery for Mac OS X

Wanted to provide you a decent range (not too extensive) of really good Mac OS X data recovery applications to review in order to determine which application would be the best
solution for your data recovery needs for your iMac.

All are good, so it really depends on which of these applications fits your needs as well as your budget.

Hope this helps.
