“Diskwarrior" is a good tool to use in addition to “Data Rescue”.
If you have to go as far as using “Disk Rescue” you have had
some major problem and may not have been doing your
backups routinely enough.

If you already have a safe-deposit box at a bank, you may want to
consider using that as your offsite backup storage place.  The idea 
being that you have a couple of backup drives, one at home and 
one in the bank.  Every week or day depending on how much you think
you can afford to lose, visit the bank and swap the drives.  Then you
aren’t trusting the internet with important backups.

Yes it’s old school, but it works!

Just my 2 cents for the day. ;-)

Usually the baddies just trash your directory, but if they encrypt everything you have accessible online, Dropbox and Google Drive won’t help you. Offline backup is essential, offsite is even better.
