I'm looking for a file recovery utility for OS X, like Recuva for Windows. (Assuming Time Machine wasn't configured) Is there anything similar?

I have used a product called Disk Drill

I personally successfully made good use of this product about a month ago when a simple mistake caused me to erase a drive I had no intention of erasing. Basically, I added the drive I used to back up all my files as part of my CoreStorage for a DIY fusion drive. So, I didn't just delete the files, I deleted the entire portion.

While I had most things backed up, I had several files that only existed on that drive. I was able to recover every one of them.
