Every Mac user hopes never to come face to face with data loss. Not only is missing out on important files devastating, the process to recover them is often too costly, too complicated, or simply not possible. That’s why, a user who’s aware of the threats endangering critical files tries his best to safeguard his data by employing various techniques such as redundant backups, strong anti-virus protection, uninterrupted power supplies, etc. But in reality, there is only little these measures can accomplish.
Human errors like accidentally deleting important files while trying to free up disk space, clearing out Mac Trash without restoring important files, accidental volume formatting, and unexpected disasters like macOS malfunction and hard drive failure can cripple any user’s data safety efforts. Thus, it won’t be entirely wrong to say that there’s no full-proof way to guarantee that Mac file loss won’t occur.
But, there’s a silver lining to every dark cloud. And in the case of Mac file loss too, there’s hope. While users may not be able to prevent files from getting deleted, there’s something they can do to regain them after they’ve been lost. Yes! It is possible.
