This misconception causes them to give up the chance to do restore lost photo files. So, it is possible to recover lost photos? What to do to recover deleted photo files on Mac? Actually the lost/deleted photo files are not gone permanently. We can still get them back as long as the files are not overwritten by new deleted files.

What Happen after Photo Loss

When we lost the photo files, what we actually lost is not the photo itself. The operating system simply loses the access of the file, as the pointers between files and file system index are deleted. The space occupied by deleted files is marked as “available to reuse”, so the deleted files remain physically intact on the drive until they are overwritten by other files. The files will be only deleted when they are overwritten by new files. In order to prevent overwriting we need to stop using the computer or storage device immediately if we want to recover deleted photos from it. So are there any chances to get them back? Let’s just keep reading, and then you will find the answer.
