Mac OS X creates index of all files on hard drive, in file system. Every file has entries in the file system index, which include file name, file location, file size, and file type. When a file is accessed from the hard drive, the index is accessed by the operating system. Operating system reads the storage location of the file and extracts it.

Whenever a file is deleted, only the file system index entry of the file is deleted and the disk space occupied by the deleted file is set as free. The deleted file is recoverable until it is being overwritten by any other file.
