Iomega Mac Volume File Recovery Software

While using their Iomega desktop hard drive or portable hard disk, Mac users may sometimes get error messages like “Volume header needs minor repair” or “Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit”. These messages occur when the Iomega Mac volume gets corrupt may be due to improper system shutdown or any other reason.  After facing such messages, you may not be able to access any of the files or folders from the affected Mac volume, thus may think of getting any freeware available in the market to perform file recovery from Mac volumes. But the usage of free softwares may result in further data loss as some of these freewares may damage your existing data on your Macintosh machine. Thus, to get rid of such miserable instances without any risk, you can utilize Mac file recovery software that can efficiently retrieve files from Mac hard drive in all the data loss scenarios.
The Mac file recovery tool has gained popularity among recovery professionals & organizations for its capability to scan each sector of Iomega hard disk drive for complete recovery of lost & deleted data from it. The software is not meant for the recovery of specific types of file formats, it has the potential to restore a wide variety of files including spreadsheets, text documents, photos & audio files, in addition to this, can also recover deleted video files from Mac volumes with ease. The software can efficiently recover deleted MOV files from Mac volume, along with recovering other video file formats like MP4, MPG, MPEG, etc and audio formats such as MP3, MIDI, WAV, RMF, etc to name a few. With the assistance of its media as well as pro edition, this software can retrieve raw photo formats generated by different types of digital cameras & camcorders.
Data from the Iomega Mac volume can be lost in various different ways, of which most common one is the unintentional format of a volume with important data instead of some other Mac volume having unwanted data. Formatting of an Iomega hard drive volume, either intentional or accidental, results in a huge loss of files & folders if a proper backup is not taken on any external storage device. The deletion of files from Iomega volumes by using “Shift+Command+Delete” key combination is another common mistake committed by most of the Mac users, which results in a file getting deleted without getting stored in a Mac trash. Due to power surge or improper system shutdown, the file system of Iomega hard drive partition may get damaged resulting in a catalog & journal file getting corrupted. When these important files get corrupt, data become inaccessible eventually resulting in data loss.

Files can also be lost if they are written to some of the bad sectors of an Iomega hard disk. As mentioned earlier, corruption to a volume header, which keeps track of all the information related to Mac volumes, also results in data loss. In all these instances, the Mac file recovery software has an upper hand in the recovery of data, as it can also recover files after volume header corruption or after a damage to catalog file. You can utilize this recovery tool to recover files from Iomega eGo & Helium portable hard drives and also from Iomega MiniMax, Mac Companion & UltraMax desktop hard disk drives.
