Important Points for You to Perform Data Recovery for Your Mac

“My college daughter’s 120GB hard drive recently stopped working. She didn’t hear any noise–it just stopped working.

I put another hard drive in the machine and set it up with Mac OS and applications, and then put her old drive in as a slave and tried to look at it, but a message comes up that says it’s unreadable. Other attempts say the hard drive is corrupt.

I have tried a few free programs and the drive doesn’t even show up. And the program only for photos, but most of the BMPs and JPEGs recovered aren’t view-able and they both run so slowly that I was only at 10 percent after three full days of running.

She’s a college student and can’t afford hefty professional recovery labs. Is there any good, reasonably priced mac lost file recovery software or process that will reliably recover the lost files such as Word documents ? Please help.”

Sure, if you have a desktop and like getting your hands dirty you can try to install the drive as an internal one, but an external connection is faster and easier.

Next, take a look at the drive itself. Is it damaged in any way? Are the pins bent or broken? Make sure that the drive is in good enough condition to actually use before you try anything in the first place that may damage it even further. If the drive is too physically damaged to attempt recovery, you may need more drastic measures that we’ll get to later.
