How to Perform MOV Files recovery on Mac

MOV is a file extension used by the QuickTime-wrapped files. The format was created by Apple Company to work with multimedia files. MOV is a container format containing video, animation, graphics, 3D and virtual reality (VR) content or text (for subtitles, for example).

The advantage of MOV files is the ability to contain abstract data references for the media data. That means that they can be easily edited - no need to rewrite all media data after editing.

Beside, MOV can be used not only on Mac, but also Windows OS. This makes MOV more popular in the world. But there is one problem we cannot ignore-- MOV files loss.

Today, let's find out the main reason of MOV files loss and get the powerful data recovery software to perform MOV files recovery.

Causes of MOV Files Loss

• 'Format error', 'write error', 'read error', 'unknown error' (with the temporary freeze in the screen).

• The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.

• There might be a problem with some files on this device or disc.

• 'memory card error' or ' card cannot be used'

• 'please insert disk to the drive' or 'no files found'

• USB drive not recognized

These error messages may be warnings of the corruption of data. Logical damage (drive is recognized, but video is not accessible) and physical damage (no recognition of drive, normally caused by power interruption or electrostatic discharge) are major reasons for the loss, damage or formatting of the MOV files.
