Maintaining critical and important digital information is very simple by using Mac operating system. Mac is highly reliable and secure operating system which will never get infect by some virus or malware. Mac uses HFS and HFS+ file system to store and organize the files and folders. Whenever a user stores some file in Mac system, two components will be assigned to the stored file. One is resource fork which holds all the information related to stored file manipulation and the other one is data fork which consist the actual information which user kept in the file.
Mac users often land up with losing some important files. This is a common problem with all the operating system. Most of the people worried about how to recover lost data? You might be the one among them. Here is a simple way to get back all your important deleted or lost files from Mac computer. Using Mac data recovery software you can undelete your deleted and lost files. This article explains the detailed procedure to recover lost files on Mac. Before discussing recovery process let us walk through a few scenarios where you might lose your important files.
- Like directory file in Windows, there is an Apple Partition Map in Mac system which is a partition scheme used to define the low-level organization of data on disks. Sometimes due to power surge or operating system crash, Apple Partition Map gets corrupt, which in turn make your computer volumes inaccessible.
- While re-installing the operating system user needs to format the volume in which he intended to install the OS. At this point of time if you accidentally select the volume which had some important files and hit format, you might end up with huge data loss.
- Sometimes a user tries to change the file system from HFS+ to HFSX or vice versa. At this point of time due to some errors, an entire partition becomes inaccessible. If you had any important files in such partitions, you might lose the files.
