Have you deleted an important file from your Mac OS X hard drive and then realized its importance? Is the Trash Bin empty and it does not contain the files that you recently deleted? The unexpected file deletion is something that happens with most of the computer users. After emptying the Trash Bin folder, you need to restore the file from backup. However, if the backup file is not usable or its not updated, Mac Data Recovery is the only way to get your precious data back.
When you empty Trash Bin in Mac OS X operating system, it gives an error message, which states:
“Are you sure you want to remove the items in the Trash permanently?”
While this Mac warning message means that all the files that you are removing from Trash folder cannot be recovered using any manual method, unless you have a complete backup.
What happens when you remove a file on Mac OS X hard drive?
If you think that the files are deleted forever, after you empty the Trash Bin, then you are wrong. Though, most of the user who do not know about the actual file removal process, think that emptying the Trash removes file permanently, but this is not the fact.
Files are never deleted from hard drive when you empty Trash Bin folder or individually remove the files from Trash. 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 and can be used to store new files.
The deleted files remain physically intact on the drive until they are overwritten by other files. It is possible to recover the lost files, after emptying Trash Bin folder. Recovery is possible through advanced third-party applications, known as Mac Recovery Software.
The applications are incorporated with high-end scanning algorithms to carry out methodical scan of whole Mac hard drive and extract all lost, missing, and inaccessible data from it. These tools allow you to perform Data Recovery Mac on your own, without demand sound and prior technical skills. The Mac Recovery utilities do not alter original files and their contents as they perform safe recovery with read-only and non-destructive conduct.
