How to Recover Lost Files from Your Mac or Storage Device with Ease

Have you ever been troubled by this? You were cautiously transferring your photos from camera to Mac, but somehow the photos "disappeared". You wondered how it could happen and wanted to recover photos lost during data transfer, while sometimes you successfully do that, sometimes you just failed.

Here I'd like to tell you some scenarios which may cause photo loss and find a good way for recovering photo lost while transferring from a store device to Mac.

How to recover photos lost during data transfer?

After you lost photo in data transferring from camera to Mac, search it immediately in both the store device and the Mac. If you previously chose to 'Cut' the photo but failed to 'Paste' it on the Mac, you may try pasting it again (paste in a place where there is enough space). If the photo can be pasted again, congratulations, your photo is back.

If the photo is still lost, you may try some photo recovery software. After the photo was lost, the data are not always lost, just not visible or readable because the entry index of the system makes a special mark on those data hinting this area can be written over by other new data. So keep in mind: do not put more photos or other data in the same place where your lost picture was stored, since once you put other new files in it, this free space will be overwritten by others, which makes it difficult to recover lost photo.

In this case it is advisable to try picture recovery software to check if your lost picture can be recovered.

This risk-free program can recover photos lost from store device or Macs with original quality. At the same time, the trial version can let you preview the effects in the thumbnail to see whether your pictures are recoverable or not. Here my suggestion is to scan the camera and computer both, improving the success rate of recovering lost picture.
