What We Can Do to Get Lost Files Back on Mac

During the process of using computer, we may some times lose lots of the important due to some unexpected reasons like accidentally delete or wrongly format our computer hard drive. This data loss situation is what we want to see but we still cannot avoid sometimes. In this article, I will show you the way to get the lost files back in simple steps.

What We Gonna Know First

As Chinese strategist Sun Tzu said, “Know yourself and know your enemy, you will win every war.” This can be also used in data recovery process. When you need to find ways to recover the lost files, you need to know the reasons of data loss and why the data can be recovered.

When you store a file on your computer, the first thing the computer operating system does is to find enough space in FAT which is in charge of marking down all of the usage of space of computer hard drive. The next step the operating system will write the content of this file in the partition and mark in the FAT to show that the space is occupied by this file.

When you delete this file, the file itself is not deleted but only show you the space of this file can be used by the new file.

Actually, the content of this file is still there, only the space of it has been free up. So, when you need to recover this lost file, the first thing you need to do is to stop putting anything new in to the drive this file was stored ’cause if the space is taken by the new file, the deleted file cannot be recovered. This situation called data overwritten.

How to Recover Lost Files

After we learn the things above then we turn to the method to recover lost files. To tell you the truth, I don’t like to take my computer to the repair shop ’cause some of my private info or message I don’t want to be seen by anyone. So I will suggest you to try the third party recovery software.

But here I will remind you is that if you decide to use the third party software to recover lost files you’d better not use the crack version or freeware. First of all, the crack version may break some function of the software itself. The next important point is that lots of them may contain the virus like Trojan. These problems may reduce the probability of the chance for file recovery and may lead to the irreversible data loss problem.

In my opinion, if the lost files were very important to you, you need to use the professional data recovery software. Here I recommend one I’ve ever tried-uFly Data Recovery for Mac.

It seems like an ads but it is actually works for you. All it take is only few steps for user to get back the files. What the most important thing is that during the recovery process, this software only does the read operation but not the write operation. This can protect your files’ safety.

Here are the steps you need to take to get your files back:

1. Install the application on your Mac. (I am using Mac so I take Mac version as a example to show you the steps.)

2. Launch the program and choose the hard drive to scan. (If you want to recover lost files on your store device, just connect your store device with your Mac, and select it and start scanning.)

3. After scanning is finished, click “Recovery” and choose the path where you want to store the recovered documents. (Warning: Do not store the recovered files in the path where you lost them before.)

All these steps above just cost a few minutes, after these, you will find that you achieve lost document recovery and all of the files are coming back to you again. Why not just come and try? More info you can check our official website by clicking http://www.uflysoft.com.
