Stellar Phoenix Mac Data Recovery
Mac Data Recovery can restore and recover your lost or deleted files when the Time Machine backup fails.
Time Machine is an advanced feature in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. This is an easy-to-use and automatic backup tool. It goes back in time and recovers deleted or lost files from the drive. The tool also enables you to completely restore your drive in case of system crash. It creates incremental backup of the files, which can be restored at later stage.
How does the Time Machine Work?
It creates a directory on external storage device, which is named as current date and time. Then the backup tool copies whole primary drive to directory. Thereafter, it creates new directory on remote drive every hour using the same naming system. However, in place of making another absolute copy of the drive, it backs up the files that modified, and creates the hard links to files that exist on drive. You can browse the 'versions' of primary drive and check the file integrity.
