How to Recover Deleted or Lost Files on Mac with Data Recovery Software

Apple gave a new dimension to Macintosh operating systems by adding the utility ‘Finder’. Mac systems are appreciated for their cutting-edge technology and efficiency. The Finder added another feather to it in terms of interactive graphical user interface. Finder organizes almost everything on a Mac system and is used as the default file manager. Hence, from creation of a file to its deletion, you have to interact with the Finder. However, sometimes while deleting or even just dragging a file to the trash, Finder doesn’t ask for confirmation and immediately deletes the file. Be it an accidental deletion or a predetermined one, the above situation leads to data loss and you have to look around for a good Mac recovery software so that you can success in recovering the lost Mac data.

The problem:

You deleted a file a few days ago that you just realized you still need! And on top of that you already emptied out your Trash Bin, so there’s nothing there! In fact the operation system does not actually DELETE the file off the hard drive, it simply deletes the reference to the file.

For example, when you go to a library to find a book, you usually go to the index catalog and find the aisle number for your book. If you delete the index that tells you which aisle that book is located at, the book is still there, but no one may ever find it again! That’s the same way deleting works: The index to that file is deleted, but not the file itself.
