Deleted Mac File Recovery

Mac is an Operating system developed by Apple Inc for their Macintosh computers. There are different versions in Mac operating system like Mac OS 10.4, Mac OS 10.5, Mac OS 10.6, etc. Mac supports two types of file systems which are HFS and HFS+. HFS (Hierarchical File system) was the primary file system used on Macintosh plus and later it was replaced by HFS+. Now HFS+ is the preferred file system on Mac OS X. HFS+ uses B-Trees heavily for many of its internals. Mac is highly secure (virus free), reliable and convenient operating system with an advanced technology when compared to Windows OS. Hence it is more popular than Windows.

Like any other OS, deletion of files is the common problem In Mac OS, due to which a user might lose his important data. How does it happen? There are various scenarios which lead to deletion of files on Mac. A few of them are explained below:

  • User might clear the Trash folder without examining its content or he/she might delete a file accidentally by using Command + Delete key combination, which results in data loss
  • Deletion of files may also happen due to the impact of third party applications like your antivirus program, which might delete an important file at the time of scanning
  • Abnormal termination or crash of your Mac OS may delete all the files in a particular volume or folder
  • In Mac OS there is a feature called journaling which helps to store the files temporarily in case of abnormal shut down of computer due to power outage or hardware failure. After restarting the computer a user can restore that data in desired location. If journal file gets corrupted a user might lose his files

You can take some precautionary measures which will always keep a user safe in terms of their critical data. A few of them are listed below:

  1. Always cross check before deleting any file or file folder from your Mac OS Trash
  2. Follow a proper plug and play procedure while accessing data from any external devices like flash drives, memory sticks, etc
  3. Never forget to take a backup of critical data before shut down or doing any major changes to your Mac like upgrading, or system scan

In the worst case scenario, you might lose your critical data without its backup. There is no need to panic, as you still have a chance to recover the deleted files. But remember one thing, once you confirm that a file is deleted from any drive, you should not overwrite it with new data, because upon overwriting the drive, it is impossible to recover any data from it.

There are some data recovery applications which are specially designed for Mac OS which will recover your deleted files from any storage device in few clicks. Mac file recovery is one such powerful utility, which includes an advanced algorithm, with which it can recover the deleted data from any device which runs on Mac OS. It supports all the devices or volumes which run on HFS+, HFSX, FAT16 and FAT32 file system. With this utility you can preview the data before restoration.
