Can you recover SD card data using Disk Utility on macOS Sonoma? The answer is no. Disk Utility is a built-in program that can encrypt the storage devices, create a disk image of your files, and change the file system, such as APFS or HFS+ on Mac.

Besides, it can help you:

  • Manage, erase, or format both internal and external storage devices
  • Diagnose and solve the problems of a disk or corrupted volumes
